“One of the most physically imposing players in the entire country, Bidunga dominates the game with defense, finishing ability, rebounding and shot-blocking. Over the course of his career, he’s improved his footwork and scoring skills. He runs the court with effort, moves well to defend ball screens and has shown himself to be an elite lob-catcher because of his frame and explosiveness. He’s special because he makes energy and hustle plays on a consistent basis.”
