He’s 20.

In this microwave society, fans don’t want to hear that. But Charlotte Bobcats center Bismack Biyombo is a kid. A very directed, driven kid, but a kid nonetheless.

Sometimes coach Mike Dunlap reminds others of that. Sometimes he has to remind himself. Recently one of Dunlap’s mentors, Denver Nuggets coach George Karl, told Dunlap that Biyombo will eventually average a double-double. It was important for Dunlap to hear that.

“Let’s say he’s doing that at 23,” Dunlap said following practice Tuesday. “There will be plenty of guys drafted at 23 who can’t do that.”

He is improving, he is starting to look more comfortable which is really a key factor. He is already athletic and strong enough he just needs the experience and improved instincts that will come. Hopefully his offensive game will continue to develop.

Most importantly he shows the desire to get better, he is always working in the gym on getting better. That is something you can not say about many 20 yr olds

I believe he had a double-double a few nights ago. I'll probably watch the game tonight because we should beat the Magic.

As frustrating as it is to watch him play, he was always going to be a project. He has until the end of his rookie contract (4th year) to prove himself worthy of a new contract

If he shows the same amount of growth from season to season that he has so far they'll give him a new deal. He'll only be 22 which is basically still a rookie and younger then some draft prospects. Think of his first four years as Bismack goes to Basketball college.

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
