Everyone has 101 excuses for him, be it cultural, physical, mental, coaching or w/e, at the end of the day when you are drafted number 1, you are expected to work harder then EVERYONE in that draft to prove you deserved it, and honestly, can you tell me Andrea has?
That's called lack of confidence.

Anyhow, I'm not defending Andrea by any means Ugo because I think I'm one of the most critical members here of Bargnani, but I promised that I try and turn over a new leaf and be more positive and optimistic regarding Andrea's future here in Toronto especially next season.
