Default Dominic James

What happened to this guy? This guy isn't even going to get drafted now. In his 1st year he reminded me of Wade someone who can penetrate. His stats went down each year and he was a 1st round pick and now he's supposed to go undrafted. Sad story

I think if he doesn't get drafted, I know someone will sign him as a free agent. The Bucks have been working him out in pre-draft work out. Teams like the Hornets, Mavs, Celtics, Nets, and Sixers could use him.

If Pacers don't go PG in the 1st I'd be completely unsurprised if they drafted him at 52. Still can't believe Luke Zeller got Mr. Basketball over him or McRoberts. Guess hitting a half courter to win state'll do that.

Eh, he didn't really improve all that much during his career. His shot is shaky and he's like a 65% FT shooter.

Hes good and should get drafted to me. Plays great D. One of my favorite players. Boston should definitely pick him up if Marbury doesnt resign.

Yup.

I like Dominic James, but Im not sure if he is even a PG at the NBA.

He also never improved in college after his freshman year, he rounded out his game more so but after his freshman year there were people who thought hed be an eventual Lottery Pick.

His picture will come up when describing players who should have left early while their stock was high.

Nah he just reeled himself in.

Guys like Matthews & McNeal also began to emerge as viable scoring options and he didnt want to disrupt the flow of their offense by ballhogging which he could have definetly done with him handling the ball so much.

Interminator is right he's not an NBA PG. McNeal and Matthews would be lucky to be mid 2nd rounders likely, James won't be drafted.

Come on, he and wade are a big difference. Wade's a legit 6'4. Dominic James is closer to 5'10. Both have crazy altheticism and penetrating skills but it ends about there. Wade's shot is still consideraly MUCH better then dominic james who shot like 60 + ft%?. really loww for a pg.
