There is this 7 foot guy named Dirk Nowitzki who would absolutely torch Andrea Bargnani. Don't know if you have heard of him, but he's pretty good.

Yeah, people do.

To say Bargnani could beat any 7 footer in a game of 1 on 1 is just silly.

haha did you not watch the raps vs mavs game in toronto this season? he absolutely torched him. he dropped 3s and dribble around him. dirk couldnt miss a shot. bargnani also has better intangibles than dirk which would give him an advantage in a 1 on 1 game.

Dirk has a million different offensive moves, a killer fade away shot, can drive... he would kill Bargnani 1 on 1.

Bargnani has better intangibles than Dirk Nowitzki? Arguably the toughest matchup in the entire league and former league MVP?

Dirk regularly torches players who are 10 times the defender that Andrea Bargnani is. It would be a joke.

sorry but bargnani is a better driver than dirk. dirk is a better shooter. all his offensive moves are jumpshots. ive never seen him post up someone and do a hook shot or something all just fadeaway jumpshots.

dirk admitted it himself that bargs has better intangibles than him. i had the quote in my sig for a while. dude...this is a one-on-one comparison, why are you bringing in MVP talks? he had a great surrounding cast and he didnt have to share the ball with a big like bargs has to do with bosh.

there are so many different types of defenders. bargnani is bigger and quicker and a good shot blocker.

He beat Jamison in a close matchup where he was losing initially. I think having a country of support helped... :laugh: j/k

wth does this have to do with the thread? we're talking bout joe johnson and bargnani, can you read? :facepalm: or do yu have the biggest man crush on dirk?

Dirk can drive? bargnani is a way better driver. he gets to the paint alot better, and can pentrate and finish at the rim with him athelticism. hes alot faster than dirk. i would definatly agree with you, dirk is the better shooter though. but in a game of one on one? no one can make a judgement until it happends. PSD has so many biased fans here. Im a raptor fan, and i donteven know if bargs could beat dirk one on one. we all dont know until it happends. even if an " inferior player beat a better player, does it matter? one on one games dont proove who is the better player. Game situation is what prooves who is the better player. get it right. :facepalm:
