    And stop being so serious kids going to take licks for a few years.

    I haven't got a chance to watch either, other than highlights. But he's not putting up good numbers at all. It looks like they're using him at the wing, but also giving him opportunities to run plays in the halfcourt. It looks like he's struggling with exactly what it was expected he'd struggle with: speed and strength.

    Not being serious, I just don't want people to shit on Bruno every time something random like being dunked on happens. Like you say, he'll be taking licks for years. Even if he can contribute in a decent way by year 2 or 3, still looking at a much longer growing curve so he'll show plenty of bad for a while.

    Our lack of passing guards is hurting everyone. They are all horrible.

    rebounding is not translating and shot blocking is not translating so far....

    he got dunk on hard tonight. someone is going to make a poster of that posterizing with the quote above on it.
    He's been rebounding OK on the wing. You also should remember that he's gonna be the youngest guy in the league this year and so you shouldn't get your hopes too high to begin with. Give him a couple years under Casey and then come back about his defense and rebounding.

    I don't get why so many people are commenting on his play without actually having watched him play. Watch, and then comment. Or don't watch, and don't comment.
    It's frustrating because I watched all the games and some of the shit people are saying is so obviously off base if they had just watched a damn game.....

    he got pissed off after he got dunked on and he shoved one of the player in his chest and said "what the fuck pussy"

    and got taken out the game and never seen the floor after.

    yes he was crying... 18 years old, left home country, his translator left that day...getting blown out second game in a row. It just shows he has a substantial amount of growing up to do. Which is fine with me since I want him in the weight room, english classes and film sessions for most of if not all of this year.

    I personally liked that about him since its just summer league
    Imo, I'd prefer it, if he felt humiliated and pissed, because I think it would motivate him
    In contrast, if he was indifferent to the fact that he was dunked on, it would suggest that he lacks competitiveness

    Yeah whatever I don't mind. Was just wondering. Good thing he cares anyways. I've felt like crying after tough losses
    "Bruno?
    Heh, if he is in the D-league still in a few years I will be surprised.
    He's terrible."

    -Superjudge, 7/23

    Hope you're wrong.

    30% shooting 30 turnover 30 pts. Everybody on the team should've been pissed. It was brutal.

    Like a certain Italian, according to his Calliper test.

    Machado's been absolute trash so far but I'm watching summer league interviews and he's literally just Bruno's translator. You gotta feel for him as no one even cares about him aha

    This is the best assist he's made all summer. No turnover too.

    Looks like he needs PR help too. He just blamed his teammates for his frustrations in an interview. (unless the new translator got it wrong).

    He's 18 and doesn't speak English. Probably media lessons are low on the priorities list. Teammates should be annoyed that every media question is about Bruno. Bebe post interview was all about Bruno.
