Toronto Raptors: Bye-Bye Bismack Biyombo?

The Toronto Raptors took the phrase “go big or go home” really to heart when deciding who to draft this year. Toronto used both picks on big men, selecting Jakob Poeltl with their ninth pick and then went on to select Pascal Siakam with their 27th pick. It was surprising to see Toronto aim heavily on frontcourt players who play primarily in the paint and don’t bring much spacing...

Biyombo willing to take discount to stay in Toronto

With his shot-erasing, rebound-munching, rim-running ways this postseason, Raptors big man Bismack Biyombo has played himself into a nice payday for his impending unrestricted free agency in the summer. But as it turns out, Biyombo may be willing to leave it all on the table in order to come back to Toronto next season. On Monday, Biyombo said that he wants to return to the Raptors...

WATCH: Bismack Biyombo opens up about growing up in DRC

The story of Bismack Biyombo is nothing if not inspirational. Growing up in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), he knew extreme poverty to a scale in which most Americans cannot begin to fathom. Walking to school with his younger brothers and sister, they were without shoes for the 45-minute to one-hour one-way treck. His parents and all the other men and women would wake up...

Bismack Biyombo’s emergence is a big problem for the Raptors in free agency

Before the Toronto Raptors took on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals, Bismack Biyombo was simply a quality depth guy the Raptors had a borderline sure shot at bringing back. Not anymore. Biyombo has been the MVP for the Raptors in the ECF with Jonas Valanciunas injured, grabbing 26 and 14 rebounds over Toronto’s last two wins and seven total blocked shots...

How Bismack Biyombo has turned into a playoff monster

“Who?” At the beginning of this season, this was probably the most common response to the mention of the name “Bismack Biyombo.” A first round selection (seventh overall) by Sacramento in 2011, Biyombo never played for the Kings, instead beginning his career with the Charlotte Bobcats.  Although his play was acceptable, it certainly was not deserving of the seventh...

WATCH: Bismack Biyombo destroys Amar’e Stoudemire on dunk

Heat center Amar’e Stoudemire could be playing in his final season in the NBA, and unfortunately, was put on a poster by Bismack Biyombo during Monday night’s game. Biyombo found himself in the right place in the right time, when a loose ball rolled right in front of him. He scooped it up, set himself and then went up to attempt a powerful jam over Stoudemire. It’s safe to...
