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.
