lol i was like "who's fondue? what college is he playing for?"

i do think 3/d center is his ceiling. but will the team correctly develop him? hard to say.

When we drafted him, my phone kept autocorrecting Mfiondu to Fondue, so I'm just sticking with it

Now that Doc has been fired, the sky is the limit for Fi's potential. It sounds like the next coach, whoever it is, will be someone who actually gives chances to young players whose last name isn't Rivers.

Develop him. Well, that's the rub. No team has PT to squander on maybes. Even if you're not going to make the playoffs you still have to try to win games so your fans at least turn on the TV.

Fi should have stayed in college. Now he's already 23 and is maybe 6'9" tops. If he were a forward that would be OK. As an NBA center? Give me a break.


That's why the NBA just started a REAL training program.

G League team of elite prospects to be called NBA G League Ignite

Fi may or may not make it, but almost every G-League [D-League] success story played 10 or so games and then got called up. Do you really think the Clippers had an NBA-ready backup center ready to contribute and Jerry West--who watches everything--didn't yank on Ballmer's chain?
