Sure he does, but it's clear that he's just not in the right situation.

Now i should clarify that he is proving himself to be a shitty player, so unfortunately when on the court playing for the current Toronto Raptors, an equally shitty team, he will fail and look horrible. But Bargnani is still a shitty player with some upside. you put him on a team with tight coaching and a system that runs like a well oiled machince and give him a role to play, i bet he succeeds and ends up looking good.

This year is a valuable year for me in two senses. One, we WILL get a good player via the draft. Two, we make decisions about the pieces we have and we formulate a plan based on said decisions. In these years with Bosh, Bargnani has been a mystery, but now on his own we have a truer picture of what he really is. I will consider this a painful lesson learned hopefully we can adapt and move on.
