A: First of all, I think you need to step back from any LeBron comparisons or anything about "great talents and skills" for a former second-round pick yet to play his first NBA game. James is still very raw, even with his seasoning in Australia, and further seasoning in the NBA Development League might be one answer. If Danny Granger is ready for the start of the regular season, then the Heat probably will not see a need to fast track James. He has promise, but at the moment, that's all.
