The mystery man of the 2014 NBA draft is less of a mystery today but there still is plenty for him to learn and for everyone else to learn about him.

Bruno Caboclo survived the first media scrum of his NBA career on Saturday morning following a brief workout at the team’s practice gym at the Air Canada Centre.

We can confidently state the scrum was far more unnerving for the still 18-year-old native of Pirapora do Bom Jesus, Sao Paulo, than anything the Raptors assistant coach Jama Mahlalela threw at him on the court.

Still drenched in sweat form the workout, Caboclo attempted to answer as many questions in English as he could but when stumped reverted to Portuguese and allowed his basketball and personal advisor, or in this case translator Eduardo Resende to relay his thoughts.

We can also say this about Caboclo. He smiles easily and does not lack in confidence.
