3) Mentor Bargs
into being a better defender/rebounder by going against him in practice all year.
Bargs playing well now does nothing to change the direction of the franchise. It is going where BC figured it would.
Now JO can be moved to sure up te wings.
The point(and I'm sure you caught it) is that no one really thought Bargnani
was going to be a 20/6 guy consistantly this year.(and i admit 9 games is not enough to apoint him one). In short the consensus was that Bargnani
might not 'get it' this year but hopefully he'd get better and Oneal was insurance that we could still be competitive in the meantime.
Now there is a quandry. Do you potentially mess up AB's mojo and move him back to the bench or to the 3 spot again... or have a potentially bad situation asking JO to come off the bench..either way it's reduced minutes for Bargnani
and is any one confident that his head will survive that kind of demotion?
