I think that is impossible to judge correctly Andrea's season. In Italian and European culture we can't conceive to lose always thinking to draft and next years, we are used to play and fight for a title, for relegation, for fans... not for something asbtract and virtual. Andrea has played 82 friendly matches. In Nba if you lose nobody cares, in Europe you find funs under your window shouting against you. If you win, good; if you lose, good. This in inadmissible and incomprehensible for us.

Last year, Raptors were fighting for a playoff spot. If you remember, Andrea has been crucial in some matches with blocks in the final and defense. Now he is playing without aims, stimulus, and this fact has repercussions on his game. This is unconscious, it is a cultural fact.

Sorry for bad English.
