But how long before they go back to trying to Jimmy the whole team in order to make up for what he refuses to supply? He needs to be the man on the offensive end in order to make up for what he doesn't do elsewhere. I'm just sick of seeing the attempts to re-invent the game, and I don't see an end to that. If another direction can be taken it would be great, but I'd have to ask what took so long to do it.
sorry, dont think its lack of interest or care about defense on bargnanis part. its his lack of defensive IQ, and reaction to where he should be on the floor that has resulted in his defensive/rebuilding woes.

and ppl using those questionable quotes he made during the season about reboundingball or w/e, i dont think that's him not giving a shit, thats him cleartly talking out of frustration that he hasnt been able to succeed as expected...so when people on here using that against him (not saying u LX dont worry), i think its complete bullshit excuse to hate on him.
