James had just turned 30 when we got him, and had been a role player before that. It was a perfect storm for him in TO with regard to playing time, touches, and the absolute peak of his playing ability.

Bargs is 25; his stats last season was not a statistical outlier at all; it's the result of natural progress in his game.


I've never ever been in agreement of the idea of trading Bargnani for trades' sake. If we get the #1 pick in this year's draft or can make another trade that improves us as a team, I'm all for it. If it's for a middling player like Jeff Green then I'm absolutely against it. Better to just move Bargs to the bench and use him as instant energy than get a so-so player like Green for him who does less than he does.
