    Bargnani Love

    Its time for all the guys who were calling Andrea Bargnani a bust to eat their crow. The man hasn't had consistent offense from game to game but his game as a whole is vastly improved from last season and from his rookie season. He looks confident and he looks very intelligent on defense and on offense, especially in terms of driving and passing. He's a very good shot blocker. I love the direction he's moved his game. He took a page out of Chris Bosh's early days and busted his *** in the offseason. Its paying off big time.

    totally agree; he shot 4 of 15 today but he did other things grabbed 9 rebs and 3 blks in the game. It wasn't his greatest game of the season but it was good.

    This game proved that when his shooting isnt on he can still contribute. They guy will never be the bust people thought he would be. The only question is will he ever be an allstar

    I agree, ive never said he was a bust or was going to be, but I did have some doubts coming into this season. Bargnani has suprised me tho and I think he can contribute to the team for the years to come.

    He'll never live up to be the #1 overall pick of the NBA draft, but he's showing this year that he will be a solid NBA player and should have a solid career. What I like about him this year is the versatility he's giving us. It doesnt matter what position he's playing on the floor, who he's guarding on defence, he's simply giving better effort this year. He's never going to be an energy guy so guys like Jared Dudley will out-hustle him in games like tonight's, but he's not gonna be the guy in his first two seasons who stands off to the side and watches others fight for the ball. We've given him minutes from the 3-5 positions and has shown he can be productive from any position. Last year, I think trying to convert him to the center position affected him negatively more than we could have ever thought it would. He simply doesn't care this year where he is on the floor. That's what I'm most impressed with.

    He's been an amazing shooter, but there are still many holes in his game. Not the ideal #1 overall pick, but you never know. He seems to be progressing game-to-game.

    His holes are closing though especially with the post game and his defense

    I think his max potential will allow him to be a 17-18 ppg player while grabbing 8-9 boards.

    I had severe doubts about him last season and I'm willing to admit that he's improved a lot in areas that were very weak, but he still has a great deal to work on (my fear was him becoming a one dimensional player). I'm not sure if anyone has noticed this, but he usually plays better in games where he's trying to score in a variety of ways. This last game apart from the occasional drive to the hoop, he was mostly floating around the perimeter.

    he's needs a swagger. The best players in the game have a swagger, and it helps; opposing teams are intimidated and you definitely a lot of confidence.

    What I liked from him tonight, was the little things he did (tip outs, charges, etc.). He progressing along really well.

    He's 22 and he's only in his third season. Bosh didn't get that swagger you're talking about until year four or five. That's one example.

    he's definitely improved

    i like his all around play

    if hr had at least hit 40% of his shots he would have had an amazing game.

    did you guys see his stats ?

    last 5 games averaging 17pts

    ever since he started he has always hit double digits in scoring except for 1 game

    i like he's more consistent in scoring now then in the beginning of the first few weeks.
