I agree with you except that Bargs is ideally a four. You want your four to be a monster on the boards. You want your five to be a legit 7' stud that can defend against other bigs in the post. Bargs fits this. Leave the rebounding and help defence to an athletic four... could be Bosh if he decides to play some defence.
