Not defensive at all. In fact you sound it.
Your Bargs notion is funny. Every player has his/her shortcomings. Yet you sound adamant on digging deeper hate for one guy cause he's a below par rebounder. Great ..so if we keep him let's go get a rebounding center. Isn't that what team building is about. Fill in the gaps here, upgrade there...
You're crying racism and i sound defensive? lol
This city has embraced athletes from all over the world, and for you to insinuate that the fans have turned on him b/c he's italian or that we disagree with Messina (a coach many here have wanted for the last couple years) because he's Italian smacks of someone running out of reasons to defend a player b/c his actual play is difficult to defend.
