He's stepped up his rebounding and defense so far which is really impressive.
Put on a few kgs of muscle but not too big, and seems very willing to bang and do the dirty work, and seems to have been consistent in his effort (especially rebounding).
Watched the game vs the 76ers, we were so much better with Biz in the game on the defensive end.
Would prefer to pair Biz with Big Al than Al with Zeller at this point, but if we need points then Al/Zeller would be my go-to

I don't think Biz and Al should both start, McBob is a much better fit in my opinion, he excels in everything Al lacks and vice versa. Biyombo is the perfect second string center. With him on the court our entire offense gets a speed boost: fast and easy buckets, that's exactly what your looking for when you play your second team.
While I just made a glowing post about Biyombo, I'm about to slam him a little bit here. He has absolutely no business playing the 4.
First of all, we tried that. It was disastrous. I know it was his rookie year, but he proved he's a natural center. He doesn't have the necessary offensive range to score AT ALL at PF, and his defensive range is much more suited to playing almost exclusively in the paint. His length and leaping abilities make him the prototypical defensive 5. Having him at the 4 with Al at the 5 basically puts 2 centers on the floor and clogs the paint, causing massive spacing issues on offense.
Al used to play the 4 as well, and while he does show offensive range to still play that position, he has no business playing the 4 defensively.
Biz/Al would never work.
