Jerome James is an extremely athletic big man with excellent ball handling skills, a smoothe shot, and is an unprecidented force on the defensive end. His skills and superstar potential will lead the Knicks to the championship this year. I don't see what your beef with Jerome James is, he's a future All-Star in the making.

Everybody thought he was a star in the making a couple years back, his performance he put on when he was a Sonic in the first round of the playoffs made people believe he was an up and coming big man with mad post up skills.
That is why Zeke threw that big bag of cash at him, he was supposed to solidify the center spot for us.
But now he is a high paid 12th man and can easily be placed on the inactive roster on any given night !

Desperation, Zeke knew he needed a big man. Any big man. A big mistake but it was Dolan's money so who cared.

That statement is half true. He has the skills and physical attributes to be a great center. But it takes the mentality and that were he falls short, about 84 inches short.

I watched him play and he is basically clueless and very egotistical. He thinks he is the best center to ever live. I would say he borders on delusional, I wonder if Zeke ever actually had a sit down talk with him before he signed him.

It is a shame because not many people are born 7 feet tall and the few that are certainly do not possess the athletic ability James has.
