All Bulked Up

Biedrins expecting a bulked-up role by Janny Hu for SF Gate

For Biedrins, it all goes back to bulk. Opponents see him in the game and are taken back to high school or college, where they dominated because of their size.

The Lakers' Chris Mihm and Kwame Brown both called for the ball and pounded it inside against him during Tuesday's game. They knew he was vulnerable.

So does Biedrins.

"The first thing when I go on the court, some big guy will say 'Oh, he's weaker than me. I'm bigger, stronger. Now I will get him,' " Biedrins said. "I worked all summer in the weight room to try to get stronger, but still, I need a lot of work. So I have to be ready."

What kind of numbers do you expect Biedrins to put up this season?

Biedrins will add a small amount to his PPG for the same reason many other Warriors will--Baron Davis. His increased size and experience might lead to a few more minutes. Other than that, he'll do what he's done so far: show flashes of what a seven footer with unusually quick reflexes can do. I still remember one no-look, almost point-blank pass he caught and dunked; he wasn't expecting it (neither was whoever threw it--Fish, I think) and it came in low, but he just snatched and flushed.

Per the article: of course he's going to get outmuscled for at least another year. One reason is that he's still growing, and that's not a bad thing at all. Keeping motivated while he waits for his break is as important for his success as building strength and bulk.

You aren't by any chance the only and only... MIKE JONES?!

Hahaha, just joking. Great analysis on Biedrins mikej. Most of us see big things coming from the man-child.
