i made the same Hoffa / Gino comparison in my head a couple of times too. Yeah, it's a bit far fetched and not at all in terms of skill and talent, but in terms of mental mistakes and Bball IQ, Bargnani seems to be lacking right now.

The other similarity is exactly how Sam is treating Bargs. The same as how he dealt with Hoffa. Start him in the first anf third, and then yank him quickly after some mistakes. I don't like this approach because it's not yeilding any kind of improvement. I just don't think this coaching style is doing ANYTHING for Bargnani's game.

It's definately the time to take him out of the starting lineup and to put Rasho back in there. I don't know if i'd sit him outright, but Sam has to change something up for Gino's sake.
