Uses his great strength to be physical on the glass, especially on the offensive end
Nice mid-range jumper
Strong finisher due to his impressive athleticism
Decent back-to-the-basket game
Runs the floor well
Plays hard and isn't afraid to mix it up down low
Stays active when the ball isn't in his hands
Shot 33 percent from three after hitting 41 percent from downtown his sophomore year
Not a great ball-handler
Improved free-throw shooter, but that area still needs to improve
May be better suited as a power forward, but will play the three due to his height
Must become a more consistent defender especially on the perimeter
Is better off being a complementary player as he has failed to emerge into a go-to guy
Summary: Once projected as a possible lottery pick, this will be a very telling season for James. If he can make the steps that he failed to take from his sophomore to junior season, he should be a mid-late first round pick. If his progress is further haulted, don't be surprised to see him slip into the second round.
Player Comparison: Wilson Chandler. Chandler is a solid athlete who relies on his ability to finish inside and mid-range game to score. James is in a similar mold but plays with a little more physicality.
