But what is that right situation? I know you mentioned placing him in an offence that can hide his weaknesses, but even Okur in Utah still played down low and defended.

The best word I can use to describe Bargnani is lazy. He's lazy defensively, he's lazy offensively as well. He relies too much on his talent, very similarly like Vince did at one point, to get by. We see guys like this every day of our lives and he's no different.

I just don't think he works on this team, where we SEEM to have a blue collar type of mentality of guys working hard and we have guy who SEEMS to be lazy.
