From an NBA scout. On what prevents Andrea Bargnani from replicating the success of Dirk Nowitzki: "They both have the height, they're both European and they both shoot it really well. But I don't think Bargnani moves as well as Nowitzki, who is a lot more fluid, more mobile. Nowitzki came into the league and was really skinny as more of a 3 or 4. Bargnani came in built as more of a 4 or 5. It's true that Bargnani is really a power forward, but at 7 feet, he's the closest thing Toronto has to a center. But it really comes down to Nowitzki being more mobile -- you could always run him off screens, and that's something you can't do with Bargnani."
