    I'm the biggest Bruno homer on this forum.

    Thank you Patrick.

    edit:

    He’s back

    I like it... getting younger and taller. Tall is good. Especially in basketball...

    Technically, resigning Bruno in itself would make them the same height and a year older. It's the other moves that count.

    But yeah, younger and taller is good.

    What a baller. He has the contract sitting on his breakfast table, says he will get to it whenever he wants.

    He only had garbage time last year. I get the MDA thing about playing young guys; wonder if Silas will give more playing time.

    I don't get the hype...yay he has wingspan, so what? Is there any sign of production, since he hasn't done much on any team he's been on.

    I'm not confident Bruno can actually learn how to play basketball.

    By now probably only 1 year away from 2 years away.

    I am sure the Rockets wished too. He had the same offer, but went to Brooklyn

    We'll see how he performs, good potential but eventually that potential has to translate into production.

    If he improves and shows he's good enough in practices or when given time, perhaps he'll get some burn under the new leadership.

    I'm on his side to succeed.

    I know I'm pretty alone on my love of Bruno but I wanted Bruno and Wood to be the front court of the future and I'm getting my wish and Bruno has to seize the opportunity. I hope Bruno shocks everyone but me.

    Get in line, I was a Bruno pusher even before Morey signed him the first time. :D

    He did have a good stretch for the Grizzlies. Can't remember how many games it was but it was definitely promising. I think he is one training camp away...

    If he’s a rotation player. There are only two possible outcomes.
    1-He’s developed and we are going to be a force.
    2-We blew it up and are starting over.

    IMO

    Bruno averages 1.9 free throws PER36 in the 1257 minutes of NBA minutes he has received.

    That is absurdly low. The fact of the matter is that he is 100% CHARMIN SOFT.

    If he would aggressively attack the rim and use his physique to be a bit more of a dick on the court, all 30 NBA teams would be interested.

    What sucks even more is that the kid has taken 65 free throws in his NBA career and made 55. That's 85%. His talent is off the charts even now.



    ATTACK THE RIM YOUNG FELLA! BE AN ASSHOLE!

    This entire team by way of starting 5 is going to be more Show and Go now, with signings of Wood and Cousins.

    Empowering the role players to do this regularly will be a culture changer.
