Idk how people can literally ignore this fact. His defense was solid but he made it to where the other team could double any of our other four guys on offense because Biz turned games into 5-on-4 when we had the ball.
Yep. People get emotionally attached to these guys, overrate them wildly and cry their eyes out when they realize they value them much more than league GMs do. But by all means, grab your new Clippers "Biyombo" jersey, plan for him to average 10-14-3 next year and then blame Doc Rivers and Ballmer when he averages 8 minutes a game and doesn't crack 40 points for the season.
Honestly so many are overrating the guy like he's Bill Russell. I'd rather have him on the roster for defense, but hell. He's not. Time to get the hell over it and see which bigs can be ours for the future.
Realistically if history is any indication? - Shoot a bit better than last year, but below career average - Facilitate the offense some, but defer to Big Al - Out-perform Lamb but get traded in January
I actually salivate at the thought of him being guarded by some of those guys. Move them outside, beat their big asses off the dribble and suddenly you have 2 FT or an open man to kick to if the defense collapses. Remember the last time we had that?
