I don't believe running all your offense through the high post can work unless you're Stockton/Malone.
Yup and if anyone has noticed lately that Bargnani is falling back on old habits. It's no coincidence that he's again had some sub-par games when he's playing beyond the arc once again. When he was on his tear he definitely was playing the post more and driving more often. Right now he's settling for either that pump fake jumper he loves to take or the three pointer. He need to get back to the post again because he was doing so well there for a couple weeks.
