Messina, who's never coached in the NBA, sure has an ego! I guess he would be shocked to find out that Bargnani was actually the laughing stock of the league just a couple seasons ago. He should go and see what professional NBA writers have written about Bargs for the last 5 years, and then compare that to Colangelo's measured evaluation of his asset.

I agree that people can go overboard on the Bargnani hate, and he's certainly a talented offensive player, but, as others have said, he's a flawed player, a crappy rebounder and a shitty weakside/help defender.
