    Default BIZMACK BIYOMBO - DRAFT 18 YRS OLD

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nmndi2b-G5s


    Anybody ever heard of him? he is 18 and has placed his name in the draft and should go in the first round.


    Id love to have him for sure on the pacers.

    i think he had a triple double tonight against the top u.s.a high school players.....I believe if he's there we should take him... he can jump and i mean jump. a great shot blocker, something we havent had in years....

    According to this : http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/...-Biyombo-5902/

    He has a 7'7' wingspan and a 9'3' standing reach for someone that is 6'9 in shoes.

    Seems tempting, 6'9 seems short for a PF/C, but does it matter with his long arms?

    I'd definitely would roll dice if he is available in 2nd round.

    Edit: He's also projected to go 18th from draft express.

    There's no chance of him getting to the second round, I wouldn't be surprised if he's not even there at 15 for us. He's getting a TON of hype this week, this is the first time the vast majority of NBA personnel's seen him.

    i agree with you.. no way indiana should let a player with such talent go by... he could be a great shotblocker..... 6'9" isn't really bad height either...

    It's also not outside the realm of possibility that he still has an inch or two to grow, he IS 18.

    Just from a first glance, he kind of reminds me of Hasheem Thabeet.

    you're right, i didnt think of that situation. He could be better then dale davis for sure. Im eager to see if he is there for us in the 2nd. But, like they said, and you, he is looking to go in the 1st round.

    Here's an article on him; http://www.fiba.com/pages/eng/fc/new...5604/arti.html

    He's 18 and putting up 6/5/2.3 in just 15 minutes a night in Spain's highest league, which is a VERY good league, probably the best outside of the NBA. That's pretty impressive.

    Are you looking forward to enter in the NBA draft? Bismack Biyombo: When the right moment comes, yes. I look forward for it. Do you think your place is in the NBA as a player? BB: A lot of players go to the NBA just for going, and they stay at the bench too much time. I don't want to go to the NBA for this game. I want to arrive and to play, not to arrive to be at the bench the first year, and in the second one go out and play 10-15 minutes.


    he has a great attitude... he wants to play.

    not gonna lie, never heard of him til just now but he looks pretty impressive. Even if he was available @ our pick, dunno how much the front office would be willing to take someone that young to add to our already super young crew, but i'd be interested in overlooking that if he continues to look good at the combine

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    As one who hyped up fellow Congolese, Serge Ibaka, wayyy before he was drafted in 2008, I'm watching this guy and am impressed. However, he's nothing comparable to Sergeballu, who had a skyrocket vertical and incredible work ethic. From the videos and articles, Biyombo looks and sounds like he has the potential to be great, especially defensively, but I don't know if we should take any high-pick* risks on him.

    * high-pick meaning first round.

    Yes, he does work for every play, jumps as high as he can for the simplest of defensive rebounds and blocks, and shows hustle like he's in perpetual playoff mode. But I don't want Ibaka to start some kind of Congolese Darko Milicic Revolution, where every athletic foreign player of similar nationality has the same potential or abilities. This guy looks good both on paper and in an international league. But even with the best of coaching staffs (ahem), I really don't think he'll be anything worth risking a first pick over.

    Of course, I'd love to be proven wrong if we do pick him up. I don't like being right when we end up drafting someone I previously said wasn't worth it (coughbrandonrushcough)**.

    ** personal opinion only.

    I WOULD like to note, however, that his attitude is great.

    Watch at 1:30 of this video as he blocks offender's shot, and appears to be complimented by the same offender after the play. International ball, man. It's a lot different.

    You mean projected prospect scouting, or anything not concerning Lance Stephenson's shenanigans?
