Biyombo is undersized and undersized bigs are usually pretty bad on offense, unless they develop a killer jumpshot like boozer or brand, or are extremely skilled in the post like scola. Biyombo has none.

Valanciunas is showing signs he could be a very good offensive player once he adds strength. His ft percentage is a tell sign he will have a good jumpshot sooner rather than later. And he has the tools to be a good post player once he gets bigger. What impressed me the most was his ability to finish around the rim. He was really good, and that's a skill that translates well at the pros. He reminds me of scola in that respect.

Givony or some other guy said this - ''Bismack Biyombo played one-against-none today and he lost.'' He is defensive minded C, and one on none workout is not his cup of tea, but the guy had problems with open lay-ups. It actually reminds me of Sun Yue workout. Both looked terrible.
never saw Bismack live, only some highlights. But as I said before, by checking box scores, I did not noticed his ''Ben Wallace'' defense, most of the times, opponent centers were leading scorers. IMO, Biyombo is more likely a new Thabeet/Kwame Brown than Ben Wallace.

Based on what? Both of those guys had no interest in basketball unlike Bismack and both of those guys didn't try or practise hard unlike Bismack.

He has a higher standing reach than Dwight howard, he's 250LB with extremely little fat (4.3%) and he's explosive as hell. There is no way he's "undersized". He doesn't need to get a killer jumpshot, he can take it to the basket, he just need to learn some post moves which I'm pretty confident with the right coaching he will.
