He worked out at TWC arena on Fri. Tyrus Thomas described him as "Emeka strong".

Bismack Byombo Workout Video 12/2/11

A tasty little treat.

No doubt that's been cherry picked somewhat, but as you guys can see he's not totally inept offensively. And he's just 19!

He's got pretty good form on that short range jumper.

The thing I noticed most about Smack in the Jimmer game was that he seemed to get over-excited whenever he got the ball low, making him look uncoordinated and "rushed". A little seasoning with Silas and I think he'll be MUCH better offensively then everyone's been saying.

Of course everyone has been saying he's totally worthless on that end...so no comparisons to Hakeem coming from here either!

If anyone in the league knows how to work with big men it's Paul Silas. He will relish working with a big, raw talent. It's what he was put on this Earth to do.

Was a pretty ridiculous comparison by Jordan, but hopefully he is correct.

I like this from coach Silas:

"Bam! Bam! Bam!" Silas recalled. "He could have gotten to 100."

Bismack Biyombo free to join Bobcats



If my math is correct Smack will be paying out just slightly over 1 million US assuming Jordan pays the full 525K allowed.

Great news. He's gonna be raw but Silas will teach him solid fundamentals. He has the potential to be an absolute beast. I'm now excited about the season.
