I recently sat down with 1st round draft pick of the Charlotte Bobcats, Bismack Biyombo. We talked about a lot of stuff, that I made up.
SlapClap: Hi. What’s your name?
BB: “Bismack Biyombo.”
SlapClap: I’m sorry?
BB: "Bismack Biyombo?"
SlapClap: …is your name?
BB: "Yes."
SlapClap: One more time?
BB: "My name is Bis-mack Bi-yom-bo."
SlapClap: That’s what I thought you said. Excuse me for one moment. I’m just going to throw the rest of these questions in the trash.
BB: "What questions?"
SlapClap: Basketball stuff. Not important anymore. So where are you from- a children’s fable?
BB: "No."
SlapClap: Your father, he owned a pancake slash herbal erection factory? Or did your mother coach vocal exercises? 
BB: "Should we talk about basketball? I am a power forward."
SlapClap: If I say your name three times what will happen to me?
BB: "Listen, I am from the Republic of Congo. I once scored 84 points in a game with 29 rebounds and 40 blocked shots. Michael Jordan just drafted me into the NBA. Is my name really all that matters to you?"
SlapClap: I- I apologize. No more questions about your name. I promise. Let me get this back on track. Who was your favorite player growing up?
BB: "Well, I was a big fan of Bison Dele."
SlapClap: Mm-hmm.
BB: "Also, Boutmtje-Boumtje."
SlapClap: Mmm-hmmmmmm.
BB: "And Uwe Blab and Pops Mensah Bonsu…"
SlapClap: What about Nick Anderson. Did you like him?
BB: "I don’t recognize the name. Maybe if I saw a picture."
SlapClap: Sure.
BB: "But my absolute favorite player growing up was Bimbo Coles."
SlapClap: Mmmmmmm-hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
BB: "I even made the PA announcer call me by his nickname during games. He was a soccer match announcer. Are you okay? Your nose is bleeding."
SlapClap: I can’t— interview over.

Bismack Biyombo

This guy is being projected as a lottery pick in the upcoming NBA Draft and he has trouble making shots within 2 feet of the hoop.

Terrible offense aside, scouts are in love with his wingspan and athleticism, and are projecting him as a Ben Wallace type player. He’s somewhere around 6’9” but has the same standing reach that 7’ Greg Oden does.

His stock exploded after he put up a triple double (12 points 11 rebounds 10 blocks) against Team USA at the Nike Hoop Summit earlier this year. Watch the highlights here.

Bismack Biyombo needs to be drafted if only for this name.
