Thanks for posting this schedule. I can't wait to see BAM play. He is like Dwight Howard with less kids lol!

Observations from Day 1 (Bam edition)
-Can have an impact on the game just with energy and offensive rebounding.
-Real deal NBA body. Hard to believe he is only 19.
-Showed some good touch out to 17 feet and some more advanced face-up game than some thought he had.
-Scored 14 points...none on dunks
- Hit three mid range jumpshots. One faceup. On pullup. One fadeaway.
-Recorded 10 rebounds but easily could have had 15 with the number of times he had his hand on the ball (especially on offensive end).
- STRONG guy! Again...prototypical NBA body.
- Looked more like a 5 long term than a 4 to me. Definitely need to resign JJ.

Non-Bam related:
-Okaro is trying to be James Johnson but he doesn't look natural with the ball in his hands
-Parrantes and Clavell could get training camp invites... something to work with there.

White had 0 assist , 7 TO's , 100 travels and shot a terrible % to get to 20 points

Instead of cutting Ellington I would hope that we could possibly trade him and McBoB to Minnesota for a protected 2nd rd pick. It would make sense since the Wolves were looking to sign Reddick. This way they get the shooter they wanted at a cheaper price than Reddick and a big to come of the bench in McBoB. The Heat gets to clear money and be able to sign JJ back and maybe McCleamore

Impressive sequence at the end of the second half by Bam. Locks down Issac one on one and then beats him down the floor for the flush.

Bam needs to get better position on the post. I would like to see Quinn put Bam in position to get the ball. They are doing everything they can to keep from getting in the post.

Bam had a pretty bad game offensively but had a few flashes

He's playing a lot of bums right now so I'd like to see that FG % be a lot higher

9 rebounds , a couple big blocks , nice hook shot , a drop step and a Bam slam

But he needs to be better when I go see him live in Vegas lol

Certainly Bam looked rushed on his handful of outside attempts today...but the motor is there... the ability to face up and get to the rim is there.

We have to remember that he is playing now against grown *** men. Now you can belittle them if you wish hitdalton, but the reality is that all the bigs he played against today will be on an NBA or other high level pro league roster this year and most of them have more experience than he does.

He is a 19 year old playing against NBA bigs for the very first time and he has had all of 4 days of practice as a member of the HEAT. Lets pump the breaks on concern about the FG% for now.

98% of the other teams rosters we're playing won't be in this league

I like some stuff Iv seen from him and I know he can't do better

Yet every single one of them were STARS on their college team. The guys you are watching in summer league are some of the best non NBA players in the world.

Besides that...you claim isn't even true tbh...

Bam has played the majority of his minutes against NBA guys: Issac, Stephen Zimmerman, Matt Costello (signed by three different NBA teams last year and played G League), Johnny O'Bryant (Been on an NBA roster the past 3 seasons)...

While some of the guys on the court are fringe NBA guys... they can all play...and they are all fighting for a job. NO ONE walks into summer league as a rookie and makes it look easy IMO.

So BamBam had the day off yesterday. HEAT are off altogether today. Back in action tomorrow morning at 8am against either the Magic or the Knicks.

Would expect Bam to be playing again given that the HEAT do not play their first Vegas game until the 8th. That will give him 3 out of 4 days off. Super pumped to see how he looks in Vegas!

Bam played a very solid game. Again there are a couple things here and there that you would like to see better... but he is the best athlete on the court every time he plays. And I can't get over his ability to get a rebound and bring it up the court at his size. Outstanding.

This summer league team overall is very weak. Only two guys likely to get a camp invite: Auguste and Perrantes (Maybe they end up on two-way contracts for the season).

Yea, Auguste, Perrantes and I can see Matt Williams get an invite too

I agree the squad looks horrible. Auguste and Perrantes should get a invite by default. I can see BAM at the 4 and JJ as a big small forward (poor mans lebron).

Starting?

I see JJ at the starting PF position & Bam & KO sub in for Whiteside & JJ.

SF position will be for Winslow, JRich, Ellington, & McGruder.

I think thats going to come with time, hes not comfortable shooting outside shots in a game setting just yet

Look at Serge Ibaka, it took him about 6 years to get comfortable shooting from deep and now he's a 35-40% 3pt shooter

Hopefully it doesn't take Bam 6 years since Whiteside would be 34 by then, but Bam has the potential to get there

Hoping Bam will play today, but Ira said it is unlikely. Seems like HEAT had a 6 game limit on Bam and have shut him down for the summer...

Very silly

He's gonna be a back up in a 4 big rotation

They should be playing him as much as they can right now

I tend to agree from the standpoint that they definitely have him doing like 4-6 hours of work every day (without a doubt in my mind). Actual game minutes are such a tiny fraction of the strain put on the bodies of these athletes.

On the flip side, I read an interesting article the other day about the jump to the rigors of the NBA schedule while their bodies are still growing and maturing and how that has lead to so many more significant injuries among young players. I think the year Justise just had was enough to make them decide to ease Bam in.
