    Let's hope his second go round is more productive than his first.

    I don't remember him being bigger, but he certainly has worked on his game since he was here.

    I'm really excited about what Caboclo can be on defense for our team. Wingspan is very valuable in keeping guys in front and playing passing lanes. I think with his size and wingspan he can give headachesto anyone in the league. In addition to his ridiculous wingspan, he has good timing and hand quickness on blocks and steals. Add him with 2 other top defenders like PJ and RoCo and it will be magic. This block video, shows me how easily he catches people off-guard and gets his hands on the ball with his arms being about 4 or 5 inches longer than expected. I really hope we give him as many minutes as possible to have him ready for the playoffs. I didn't even realize he got off the bench last game, but he got 2 steals and a block in 5 mins.

    It was only his first game in a new system, but he didn't seem very good in garbage time against the Warriors' garbage time players.

    Hopefully he does well with whatever time he gets tonight.

    Looked a little out of control / lost offensively, but was very disruptive defensively in his garbage time minutes vs the Warriors. I think there’s potential here.

    Look at timestamp

    That thread was started 9 games into Bruno’s Viper career, Melo was benched, and MDA was playing House and Clark.

    The point of that thread was saying how well Bruno is shooting the 3 on Vipers and he’s going to be stolen and we’ll never get him back. So, obviously, ‘holic was wrong that we had to sign Bruno ASAP then for fear we will never get him back.

    Uh, we got him back pretty easily. :p And he still has a lot of question marks, especially his defense
