I'm ecstatic about him going 6 for 6 at the FT line...that's sooo awesome.

EDIT: You want to talk about a comparison that's actually applicable? Kendrick Perkins. He got drafted in the first round straight out of his school but was completely unprepared for the NBA game. Because the C's were a playoff team at the time, and the D-league hadn't hit its stride yet, he basically was told to just live in the practice facility. Because he's got a great work ethic, he eventually turned himself into a fantastic defender, although blowing out his knee robbed him of a good deal of the quickness that helped him on his rotations. With enough hard work and hours upon hours upon hours of studying game film and learning footwork and positioning, like Perkins, Biz could become an excellent defender. Saying there's going to be a decade where he's the primer defensive force in the league is way premature, though.

It's tough as a fan to evaluate a player who your favorite team drafted to be a big part of the franchise... there's a fine line between seeing plays from a player in a game that you think are signs of eventual spectacular/dominant play and something that's just a regular play. When I've seen Biz he just doesn't make any plays that make me say "Damn, that was freakish" or that isn't the average play. Take Andre Drummond of the Pistons for example, he's young, he's raw, no real post moves to speak of but he's also had games where he's been dominant defensively (sometimes offensively) off the Pistons bench. There's no doubt to anybody that Drummond has that "it factor" if he gets his stuff together. I guess that's what I've been looking for from Biz (on the defensive side of the ball only) and it's been hard for me to see that.
Damn. Wish I could've seen the game tonight, that sounds great adam.
just peep the play by play and see how many times his name pops up during that 2nd quarter stretch: http://www.nba.com/games/20130327/OR...meinfo.html#Q2
This guy didn't even make the rising stars challenge. I mean look at kemba's stats from last year and now. That's 5 ppg higher that's actually a big deal.
