Q: Will the Miami Heat coaching staff and organization catalyze on James Ennis' skills and experience? I am looking forward to enjoying the excitement of his game. Is it time the Heat organization develops their own LeBron James? I would be very disappointed if Ennis spends most of his time on the bench wasting his great talent and skills. -- Stefanie, Margate.

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.
