    hey, remember that this kid is under a bunch pf pressure as well. He's trying his best out there, and it's hard for anyone to adjust to a new surrounding.
    watched the casey interview and people need to stop holding this kids hand and saying "its ok bruno". this kid needs to be trained to be a killer. yes he played bad game, the entire team played bad, they got blown out by 30. he needs to be in the gym lifting weights thinking about how he is getting his ass handed to him 20 pt blow out then 30 points. any other sport in this country but hockey we play soft and talk soft that needs to change.

    I loved that he threw his teamates under the bus he didnt say they are shit. he said i am helping you guys need to help me I cant do everything.

    People also need to accept he was selected over personal preference while realizing he is two years younger than that personal preference.

    When one discusses draft picks and prospects age has everything to do with everything.

    In semi-related news, Jason Kidd is trying out Greco-Nigerian Durant at PG.

    I love his drive and I too see nothing wrong with what he said. He was right. It looked like he was the only one even trying out there. Then he gets dunked on because he's the only one trying to play defense, and it just boiled over for him. You could say getting posterized was the straw that broke the camels back. It appears vet savy just means not giving a shit. I'm glad Bruno doesn't have vet savy.

    If he is this competitive in the Summer League, imagine how hard he's gonna play in the NBA.

    Liking what I've seen thus far during summer league (but obviously taking it with a grain of salt). He moves effortlessly (huge strides) can practically contest a three from the paint with that wingspan, gives good effort on d, can hit an open shot from range fairly reliably. There's a lot to work with here and based on coach Casey's remarks in the interview he's more than willing to put in the time necessary in the gym. Patience will be needed but the signs are good so far. I see his upside as potentially a Nicolas Batum type player (the talk of KD is ridiculous and unfair). Solid starting 3 in this league on a winning team. Should be fun and watching him develop.

    I'm very impressed with Bruno. Kid will b much better once he starts playing with better players. Raptors Summer League team really sucks.

    Agreed. Also when he gets a hold of the language and gains some strength.

    This.

    Basically the only NBA caliber player on this roster is Buycks and maybe Bebe. But Bebe just like Bruno is still a project.

    Bruno will definitely be a significant contributor not this season but next.

    he already has a silky smooth jumpshot. No reason to think the mins Novak got last season will not go to him

    It would be pretty great if he can contribute by next season. Still think it would be a small role, at best...so yeah, a Novak-ish role, but even that is a bit off base, because Novak was used a lot at the 4. Think Bruno will only be useful at the 3 for at least a couple of years as he fills out.

    It's great that he can already shoot, it will help him a lot.

    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.
