Mo Bamba of the Philadelphia 76ers is speaking out about his time in Los Angeles. The tall, easy-going former college and Orlando Magic star has a lot to say about his plans for thriving in the ‘City of Brotherly Love.'
“The next step for me is just consistency,” Bamba said according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. “Barring any injuries, just being out there and, you know, doing what I do best, protecting the rim, touching the floor and being so much more of a lob threat.
“I’m really looking forward to playing with the group of guys that we’ve got here. But I think consistency in all things I do out there on the floor is the biggest thing for me.”
Bamba, a 7-foot, 230 pound center, has drawn attention in the past for adding muscle to his often thought of as “slight” frame. He has made 35.9 percent of his three-pointers over six NBA seasons, but has had a hard time staying healthy for an entire season.
The former Texas Longhorns star will need to improve his assist-to-turnover ratio to become a true impact player with the Sixers in Philadelphia. For his career, he has averaged 0.9 assists per game compared to 0.8 turnovers per game.
