    We need to come to a concensus on this thread so Joe knows what to do on draft day...:)

    What we need is a poll with a single choice.

    Biyombo wasn't satisfied with his jumpshooting show. New strategy, he's planning to show Joe he can thread the needle and some figure 8 dribbling.

    A short interview with Biyombo by Chad Ford. I was pretty surprised by how good his english is. I remember reading him speaking 6 languages in some article but I thought that meant he was able to say "Hello, I am Bismack" in those languages.

    I wonder what Deke's take on this kid is. Surprised that nobody has interviewed him about the guy.

    I'm really liking this kid. We don't need shooters. We need dunkers. 23 dunks a season from Maxiell just isn't cutting it for me.

    We need shooters, consistent three point shooters and yes some dunkers would help on those days when Daye, CV and BenG are off on their threes

    Our dunk leaders for 2010-11 were as follows:
    Wilcox ~ 66
    Tay ~ 54
    Monroe ~ 27
    Max and Tmac ~ 22
    CV ~ 20
    Daye and Big Ben ~10 each
    Stuckey ~ 7
    BG and Will B ~ 3 each
    Summers ~1
    Rip ~ 0

    If he's what he's advertised to be, the Pistons would own the boards on both ends and have a great defensive frontcourt with Biyombo, Monroe and JJ.

    Maybe someday the Pistons will have a player who can play both offense AND defense. :stirthepot:

    Bismack Biyombe = Return of "NO FREE CHILI."

    Imagine, Big Ben could actually mentor this kid and put him on a faster track to being really productive. That is if he's coachable.

    And to the comment about him possibly being more raw than Ben when he came into the league: No Ben was TERRIBLE. I mean, he's 6'" - 6'8" with a ~40" vertical and he wasn't drafted. Ben had to work REALLY hard on his game to get noticed. Biyombe looks to be in a very similar place as Ben when he came in. Don't forget we got Ben at age 26, so he had improved a bit from when he entered the NBA.

    I like Biyombe because he is really the only player we would likely draft that has an intimidating presence. You want the bad boys?, start with this guy. He'll be an absolute enforcer.

    My only real worry is that he might not have good hands. But if he was nervous, I can see why he'd be dropping balls in the workout. I can also see why he'd look so bad in 1 on 0. He was doing shooting drills for crying out loud. Can you imagine Ben Wallace in that scenario, lol (even at 37). Biyombe will be catching lobs and THUNDER DUNKING on fools, not shooting elbow jumpers or flip shots. Come on.

    He's not a scalpel of precision, he's a big, scary blunt object. We've got the finesse with GM, Daye, Bengo, etc, let's bring on the badass.

    Ben hits 3 pointers in pre-game warm ups.

    Oh, and the phrase from the announcers when he swats a shot will be "Bismack with the B!tch-smack!!"

    Watching the combine on ESPNU, it looks like Bismack has absolutely no offensive skills whatsoever...he can't shoot or dribble. If he did eventually have success at the NBA level, he would be a Ben Wallace type (which isn't all bad).
