Biyombo's focus: Rebounds, blocks, and defend.  People should only pass to him if he is open.  Otherwise, he is there for one reason.  Defense.  

But he doesn't actually do any of those things on an elite level, which is what his contract was for at the time it was signed. He was supposed to be an elite-level, defensive player. For someone who was supposedly analytics-based, Henny really dropped the ball on that one.

Yet we continue to ask him to handle the ball around the three point line

I was not able to watch the game, but if Biz is being asked to handle the ball ANYWHERE let alone around the three point line we are in serious trouble!!

He had a dramatic impact on team defense in Toronto and had dpoy rim protection in Charlotte http://on.nba.com/2xXJDMW

He comes here and sucks.  Why can't we put players in their best position to succeed here? What are other teams doing differently

Sure but biyombo is making a crazy amount of money so you can almost make a case for anyone making less than him.  

 

Doesn't mean dedmon would have been a good signing.  We saw what he was while he was here.  And i think last year was more of a function of San Antonio and their storied history of turning stiffs into reasonable players than dedmon improvement

Wasn't Simmons a stiff before San Antonio turned him into a reasonable player?

 No.  He was a rookie.

What's everyone's opinion on the new all star layout. Could someone clearly explain it if possible? 

People still vote for 5 eastern players and 5 western players, those are the starters but won't necessarily play on the same team. The coaches select 7 players from each conference to be the reserves.

The leading vote getter from the East is a captain and the one from the West is the other captain. They take turns selecting their teammates

Are you sure about that? I thought they were just selecting the top vote getters

Isaac was a PG in high school.  Fournier can carry the ball too. I'd start:

Vuc - Gordon - Isaac - Simmons - Fournier

No
