So......a 25yr old player is playing under the level of a 30yr old future HOF and former MVP.

And there are a few things that also need to be looked at, Nowitzki takes 3 less shots per game then Bargnani therefore on less shots he's averaging more PPG on a much more talented team. If Bargnani had that talent around him he'd be lucky to average 18ppg. Also, defense.....Dirk is no great defender but he's better then Bargnani. This comparing these two players seriously has to stop. Hell, Nowitzki's shooting %, let alone his consistency/effort/competitivness puts him on a whole other level. Bargnani will never be on the level of a Dirk Nowitzki, he doesn't have it in him as a competitor.
