barni needs to be traded... for all you saying he can be effective as a 6th man, his lack of defense is always going to cost up more than he scores. he's inconsistent and unreliable, guys been a bum and always will be.
dont compare him to amare... amare has had some success and isn't a soft piece waste of talent (as much anyways) .
sorry i just can't stand barni and how people try to say he can do this or he might do that.. same story for last 4 years
This is the only reason (and the only necessary reason) why we can't have Bargnani on our team:
http://www.sportsnet.ca/basketball/2...pment_raptors/Former Toronto Raptors head coach Sam Mitchell says he wasn't allowed to coach Andrea Bargnani the way he would have liked to because the franchise felt Bargnani wouldn't be able to handle it.
Mitchell believes this could be one reason why Bargnani hasn't turned out to be the franchise player some thought he could become.
"I wasn't allowed to coach Andrea the same way I was allowed to coach Jose (Calderon)," Mitchell told Tim & Sid on Sportsnet 590 The Fan on Wednesday. "I was a hard *** on Jose; I was hard on him, but look at the type of player he turned out to be.
"I was not allowed to be that tough on Andrea because within the organization we felt he couldn't take it.
A grown *** man on an NBA team should be able to handle any type of coaching. This is just ridiculous.
Everyone jumps on BC for his so called knee jerking reactions to trades but yet you want to trade Bargnani just cause your sick of him even if it's a stupid move?
lol for the last two years 3/4 of the NBA could have been the best player on the raptors.
and to say barni excels on offense is true but its not to a point where it makes up for his atrociousness defensive efforts.
keeping him on this team is a stupid move... hes had chance after chance and hasn't proven **** except some games he can score around 20 points.
time to stop babying this guy and be real about the situation, which is barni has worn out his stay in toronto and once traded will likely fall deep on another teams bench rotation.
In order to grow as a player, fight through injuries, play through fatigue, hustle, etc. you need to have a tough mind.. I've never seen an NBA player who has so much physical capability and skill, yet so little mental toughness. That's why you see flashes of brilliance when he conjures up whatever little confidence he has, but it quickly fades once he loses it.
Until he figures out how to strengthen his mind and build confidence, he's never gonna be a consistent player and he doesn't belong in the NBA (unless a team is willing to deal with roller coasters for days.)
Bargnani may be this teams worst help defender but he is this teams best post defender.
Everyone knows he's flawed but a talent.
Bottom line trade or not, what needs to get done is what's best for this team.
Sorry, if I don't agree with you, mr right
Until this point one of the few talents on roster people wanted to dump for little to nothing. Despite his constant struggles, I understand the concept of value.
I'm just stating my opinion on barni like the rest of us... and like you said, what needs to be done is what's best for this team... and that's to get rid of the 7 foot talented player that had crapped away every chance he has had to help this team succeed.
look at what Amirs done with his first chance to become some one in the NBA and for the Raps.
hard work and dedication goes a long way. something I don't see in barni
