Evaluation: James has terrific size and strength in the low post and uses it to push people around in the paint. He does a very good job of rebounding and displays a nice mid-range stroke. He also has the ability to consistently knock down the 15-foot jumper and is a solid shot-blocker. He fights well in the interior as well and makes sure weaker opponents have trouble scoring on him inside. However, he needs to improve on his low post scoring moves and foot work to become more of a scoring threat in the paint, although he has shown some signs of development.
