Our main problem on defence is points allowed in the paint and three point shots. A lot of three point shots are caused by penetration in the paint. If we had a center that can defend, a lot of points can be prevented.

Bargnani has shown time to time that he can not block shots, and can not react to player switching. It costs the Raptors at least 10-20 points every game. In Bargnani's rookie season, he played PF. The role of interior defence did not fall entirely on his shoulders.
