he seems incredibly raw. I think there will be better options
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....
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.
It's also not outside the realm of possibility that he still has an inch or two to grow, he IS 18.
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.
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.
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
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)**.
