well i agree with you for the most part.

i don't think Sam has done Bargnani a lot of good considering how much talent the kid has. But at the same time, he has minorly improved parts of Bargnani's game. Right now, Andrea is rebounding the ball better and at least has some kind of inside presence. Something he really didn't have before.

Still, i don't think Sam has much of a system in place. He seems to expect players to do certain things, but doesn't seem to draw up plays or schemes by which they should do them. Like, i'm sure that Sam would rather have Bargs take it inside instead of floating around the three point line.... but what of it? I wonder how a coach like Jerry Sloane would have taught Andrea.

yes. Sam has dissapointed me in this regard.
