This isn't a 29 year old veteran we're talking about here, it's a number one pick from Italy with a diverse skillset trying to find his niche in the NBA. Some leeway is required in the way of growing pains.
Also, of course his mentality is to score - that's his forte! Nonetheless, his last game of the season was a 6-block performance; that's not bad for protecting the rim.
I'm disappointed in Bargs' low rebounding totals like everyone else, but one step at a time here. His offensive improvement this year has been spectacular. He went from about 11 points 4 boards a game before december to around 18.5 points and 6 boards after.

Exactly. Jackson forces his players to learn how to think smart on the court, otherwise they find themselves on the bench.
