Bismack Biyombo has replaced Roy Hibbert as the #1 rim protector in the NBA.

 

Biz = 38.4%

Roy = 41.3%

I saw that last night.  Pretty cool.  Guess that reinforces whoever it was on here using "elite" to describe Biz's rim protection D

Cool he can protect the rim but he's so bad on offense it cancels out

He has got better though.. Give it time I think Biz will be fine.

im not giving him anymore time - i have just let the ship sail on him being anything more than someone who will clean up the boards and play excellent Defense

 

im fine with what Biz is, just wish we got more out of a #9 pick

 

But here is a nice article on Jimmer/Biz and the 2011 trade/draft that we were involved in with Milwaukee and Sacramento:

I've been a big detractor of Biz in years past, but I've been highly impressed with him this year.  He played really well in Big Al's absence earlier in the year and he has steadily improved in his playing time since.  I think he has picked up quite a bit from Al's mentoring and Ewing's coaching on the offensive end.  I've seen him do that baby hook enough now to know that he has worked on it and added it as an offensive go-to.  It looks consistent enough to be highly reliable now. 

 

I'm proud of him and happy to have him as a Bobcat.  No, he isn't Andre Drummond in terms of offensive production, but he plays his role, and plays it extremely well.

There is only 1 ball.

Having 5 scorers is a great novelty & it's fun watching your team score 100 points every night..

But you get tired of seeing them get outrebounded & give up 105 points every game.

That would be me. He's been in the top 5-10 pretty much his whole career, he's now starting to add some post moves and is working on his jump shot.  He's also the hardest working player on the team. Kid's a gym rat, which is why I still think he can improve to be a 10ppg guy offensively.

Third is where this list gets really surprising, cause at third you have Paul George.
