What team do you guys think James White is going to?
 
I was just wondering because when he does enter the NBA....its over for everybody in the NBA dunk contest.......

It's a mystery, but I'll tell you this:

The dunk contest alone makes him worth a 2nd round pick. Give him the 12th spot on your roster for half a season, and let him win the dunk contest. Trade deadline is usually a week after the allstar break, so the day after the contest, you can trade him at the peak of his value for a late 1st round pick in the super-deep '07 draft.

he has to come out..hes a senior
and its not necessarily a lock....even though nobody can even touch the between the legs from the free throw line (which is the greatest basketball moment i've ever seen live)..but he did lose in the NCAA contest cause he lost the handle on it

craigthomasb 06-09-2006 05:16 PM

if james white is drafted and he doens tget 1 minutes of PT he WILL NOT be in the dunk contest

look at gerald green for example

hes not automatic for the dunk contest

glidedrxlr22 06-09-2006 05:17 PM

He should go to Portland. He'll be the second coming of Clyde "The Glide" Drexler.

James White lost in the McDonald's All-American and college slam dunk contests, but he is a lock to win the NBA slam dunk contest?

:roll:

Based solely on his athleticism?

yeahwhathesaid 06-09-2006 06:10 PM

his overrall jumpshot has improved and he looks like a lock for a late first or an early second round pick.

fatboy11 06-09-2006 06:12 PM

His improved jump shot and his defense are what has him in the first round right now. I think he'll go in the 22-30 range. I don't even think he'll make it to the 2nd round now.

Yes James White is a 1st Round lock, that I can tell you.

TheReturnofCed 06-09-2006 08:23 PM

www.nbadraft.net has his comparison as Mauirce Evans..... WTF?

The best comparison for him is Clyde Drexler. He won't get to that level in all probability, but he is the same type of player.

He is already better than players like Deshawn Stevenson IMO. If he is still available for the Magic in the 2nd round he should be automatic.
