Big man Mo Bamba shows ridiculous speed at Bulls workout
NBA Draft prospect Mo Bamba showed off some ridiculous athleticism during a predraft workout.
According to the Chicago Tribune’s KC Johnson, Bamba ran a three-quarters court sprint in 3.04 seconds. That time is faster than speedy guards like Russell Westbrook, John Wall and Dwyane Wade.

Bamba is an outstanding shot-blocker. He averaged 3.7 blocks per game at Texas, along with a double-double — 12.9 points and 10.5 rebounds. The 6-foot-11 center also has a ridiculous 7-foot-10 wingspan.
The Bulls hold the No. 7 pick in the draft. It’s possible that Bamba won’t be around when they are picking.
