    He already looks better than James Harden on defense. Low bar, I know.
    Considering the beard got a few all defensive team votes, that bar is perched pretty high right now

    It's pretty hilarious how the season hasn't started and people are already bitching and whining about how Casey isn't giving Bruno enough minutes.
    Oh yeah. Casey's going to ruin Bruno, just like he messed up JV and Ross (who should be in summer league, not working out every day with ultra hard working DD and Amir). Masai has to be a terrible GM for extending the man screwing up all our young players' development. Damn fools in both Head Coach and GM positions. The team is doomed for decades to come!

    Watched some of his highlights, he seemed to be a little out of control. I think he'll develop into a good player, but he seemed very raw.

    Dribbling a lot with his head down, I noticed at least.

    This guy basically had a 100% game his two tip in misses were followed by a re-tip and the shot went in, I guess many were wrong about this pick in the first round! Good Pick!

    Unless Payton plays at 150%, he can't score on his own. Defensively he's fine but Demar could shut him down in isolation.

    Payton's a PG.

    Point is he isn't a shooting threat or a threat to penetrate. Also, SF take ballhandlers some center can defend guards too.

    @Jlew1050 Casey on "2 years away from 2 years away" critique of Bruno: "Those people don’t know anything about basketball if that’s what they think"
    "You donít know the Bruno Caboclo......"
    Bruno Caboclo

    Basketball has clear winners every night --
    except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.

    Random question but do we have a consensus on how to pronounce caboclo? I've heard it both with and without the "L". Lord knows I won't learn the correct pronunciation by watching nbatv announcers.
    It's not just about Lowry...It's about the 3 spot.

    Yeah I think Ujiri said it without the "l" but that sounds weird. I hope it's just ka-bock-low because that's how I say it.

    Agree, except Payton. He looked like a fucking stud in Summer League. Too bad his hype train went crazy and was totally out of our range at 20

    11pts, 3 reb, 1stl and 1 three during 32min of play. MU was at the game.

    Caboclo is what we call a child of white and native brazillian parents. Like mulatto is to white/African American mixed kids (don't mean to be insensitive).

    Caboclo is also an all encompassing word for simpleton or country bumpkin. The closest translation I guess would be "fella".

    Sometimes its spelled caboco (no l) and since its derived from a native word, its correct. but since its a common name and it's spelled with an L, it's pronounced (in Portuguese) " kah-bo(short o, like saying bow without the w)-clue"

    In gringo pronunciation it's "ca-bow-clow" ahaha

    Reporter: what do you like about Bruno?
    MU: 'Like Fran said, he's 10 years from being 10 years away but hahahaha'
    I think MU was mocking Fran

    Winners
    Bruno Caboclo - He has so much wingspan it would send Jay Bilas into a tizzy. There are rumors that the 6’9” forward has a 7’7” wingspan and I’m here to tell you that’s not a Paul Bunyan-type exaggeration. His hands were almost down to his knees when his arms were at rest and he did a nice job of getting into passing lanes. Plus, his jumper is actually pretty solid and he wasn’t a poor ball handler either. Of course, he has a lot of learning to do. I could see him making an impact in 2015-16.

    Default 6'9" and GROWING




    How big is too big to play the 3? Gallinari is the only 6'10" wing in the league that I can think of offhand. Does anyone think Caboclo ends up sharing time at the 3 and 4 once he add mass?
