So far Silas has got a lot more out of people than most. He's got UPS looking better than ever, Mullens came in extremely confident, he had Kwame looking like he belonged in the NBA last year, has Gerald Henderson believing in his offense as well. I may disagree with the man's playcalls and rotations, but he's done a good job getting people to play to their potential.
This guy is what this season's all about for me would like to see him getting more minutes but just gotta trust Silas on this one. hope he's managed well and not the next Alexis ajinca.

Kemba had a couple assists to Biz tonight I believe, one being Bizs first dunk of his NBA career! Hope they can keep it up

To put him in comparison with a similar player, Serge Ibaka averaged 1.3 blocks in 18.1 minutes his rookie year (at 20 years old and more experience prior to crossing the Atlantic & a far longer training camp). Biyombo, so far, is averaging 1.4 blocks in only 12.7 minutes (at 19 years old). Their rookie rebound rates are about the same per minute, but Ibaka did have a higher point percentage. Still so early in this season, though.
Didn't catch the Indiana game but looking from the box score...4 rebounds in 12 minutes is pretty good.
His problem seems to be wanting to do too much every time he touches the ball. Every time he is fed in the post, he makes up his mind that he HAS to do something with it, when sometimes the best play is to pass it back out.
I love his energy, but he is still putting it all together, which is to be expected.

One thing I've really liked is that for the most part he's really avoided the foul problem we thought he'd all have. Some of the ones he has gotten were pretty bad calls too. Sometimes on defense he just kinda stands there while someone like Mullens is getting destroyed in a post up without helping or even preparing to box out. Nothing some teaching in the film room won't fix
