The winner of the D-League slam dunk contest, James White, just signed a 10-day contract with Houston. This guy's an unbelievable dunker. Threw down a couple in the contest from the FT line. Supposed to be a very good scorer and a decent defender, too.

He's a phenomenal athlete. Haven't ever really seen him play though.

Saw him last year when was with us. His IQ isnt great..subpar shooter, not that fast. Maybe the D-league improved his IQ and shooting since then, but personally I dont think he'll be that good.

I was super excited when we had him last year..but he dissapointed me:(

Sounds a bit like Gerald Green. Huge upside, but not all the right tools to make good on it.

Well, I hope at least he's stick around the NBA for a bit, so that he can challenge LeBron in the dunk contest next year. Cause I think we all know he's basically already won it. But this kid can dunk with the all time greats, so hopefully he sticks around to give bron bron a run for his money.

I guess Houston needed a new practice player
He'll only get garbage minutes, no need for anyone to freak out

No PT for White tonight versus the Raps. Yao and Scola both got double-doubles though. I like it when the Rockets run the offense through Yao.

I really don't know how he doesn't at least touch the ball every time down the court.

He went between his legs from the free throw line. Just nasty.
