Clifford gave Bamba a long runway here. I'd prefer it not to come at the expense of WCJ's minutes tho. Play Bamba next to WCJ if you have to.

all the negative but nothing about his 17pts on 7-10 shooting (3-3 from 3) with 6rbs, 1ast, 1 stl, 1blk, 1to, 0 fouls in 17 minutes though...

The kid is rough around the edges but super talented... yes... talented. Not just tall


Offensively. Let's stop saying talented. Lets say maybe offensive talent. But the man atrocious on the other end. The thing is he wasn't drafted to be an offensive player. He was drafted for what he coukd possible do defensively. Have you not seen how easy Robin Lopez has been able to score on him?


His post defense isn't great but whats wrong with his team defense? Absolutely nothing. Guards are scared to go to the paint against him.

He needs to get a little bigger and he'd probably be a very good post defender if he could hold his ground.

Mo's problem is his motor and his strength....his motor seems to depend on how he's playing and he absolutely needs to get stronger...guards shouldn't be able to box him out....robin lopez shouldn't be getting that deep in the post

Hey I give Clifford credit... he didn't go back to the veterans like I expected him to.

He's gonna let the kids lose this one all on their own.

i am sure the Bamba haters are going to call WCJ for getting just as wrecked defensively. I won't hold my breath.

Yeah he goes for the block too much on defense. Plus he slaps at the ball, instead of just holding his arms up and making them take a tough shot. I think those things can be corrected, eventually.

Okeke needs to rebound much better than he has if he wants to become a starting level player.

Playing two 20 years olds in the backcourt at the same time is the best tanking card Clifford can play tbh.

Return to Orlando Magic
