i was just stating that people who hate on Bargnani have a good reason too because its evident by the results. and people who are supporting bargnani, all there points are always pertaining to what kind of player he has the potential to be.
ie: when in the right situation he can be effective, when playing PF alongside a legit center he'll be good, blah blah etc etc

those are all based on speculation by those that have envisioned the potential of Bargnani under the right circumstances.
Man, I didn't proclaim myself 'the man of reason' rather 'a man of reason'. Regardless, my objection isn't against you, just your faulty logic. Further, there are legitimate reasons to support Bargnani, you're just assuming they are all based on potential when in fact they are not. Sometimes there are reasons that we cannot see or have overlooked, but you're posting as if you've taken a holistic approach and not left out anything. If you haven't seen an effective Bargnani, then you haven't watched enough. Maybe it hasn't been as often as most would like, but it's foolish to say it's never happened.
