thats the kind of potential this guy has. i believe that he will reach it one day. hes surround by players that have great work ethics. walker and mkg are not the type of players that are content with where they are now, not talking about location but quality of basketball. those guys want to be great just like biz. these passed couple years were not about just acquiring young talant but changing the culture. dunlap didnt come here to win a title this year but to develop players. the wins will come in time but right now its about development. i feel that we just didnt draft players and hope for the best but that we drafted players that understood that with hard work and dedication we can be great.
He just hit 20 years old this past fall and is a foreign-born player who was labeled as raw from day 1. Patience, ceiling, future was what was wrapped around this kid when he was in the draft, and now we're saying he's garbage and ready to discard him? I know it's frustrating, but we are in year 3 and the youngest team in the league with lots of potential, but no true established talent around him. I know it was just rumors and the ship has probably sailed, but a player like DMC would be ideal to land and the two would feed off each other. Rather than scrap Biz, why not surround him with better players and let the kid develop a little.
I've been saying that the Bobcats should neither get rid of Biyombo nor make any long-term plans based on him panning out. The guy's a wild card. If he's good in a few years, then great. It's also just as possible he never gets it. In no way is he a building block that the team should be basing personnel decisions on.
Anyone else notice how bad he was against Jefferson (or was it Milsap) when the ball-hadler faced-up and basically juked him out to the basket multiple times? Is this problem fixable or a fundamental athletic deficiency?
