Arrow Dominic James

Who do you think Dominic James will most turn out to be like in the NBA...

I think he's more of a Baron Davis...


Marquette guard Dominic James declared for the NBA draft on Thursday, but will not hire an agent so he has the option to return to school.

James, a sophomore, led the Golden Eagles with 14.9 points per game. He was an All-America honorable mention selection by The Associated Press last season and a first-team All-Big East selection.

"This is an opportunity that I want to take advantage of," James said in a statement. "Coach [Tom Crean] and I talked about our goals at the beginning of the season and one was the option of being drafted. The time is now to take advantage of that option."

James also led the team with 167 assists and ranked fourth in the conference.

Crean said he supports James' decision to explore his options in the NBA.

"You have to give your players a chance to chase their dreams," Crean said in a statement. "If not, you aren't building your program the right way or doing the right thing."

The draft is scheduled for June 28, and the deadline for James to withdraw and return to Marquette is June 18.

Default Re: Dominic James

I don't think he will be close to Davis. While he is athletic, strong, and can't shoot just like Davis when he came out of college, he is under 6-0 and just doesn't run a team as well as you would like to see. The potential is there, but I think he needs to go back to college to prove that he can be more of a playmaker and work on his shooting.

If he can just hit some more outside shots I think he will move up into the 1st round, if he doesn't improve his shooting, you just have to wonder if he will ever be more than a guy who just plays based on his athletic ability.
