Bargs can shoot, pass and did average 21.4/5.2, seriously, we're talking about an increase of 2.8rpg and Dirk makes 17mil. Both have suspect D but can be average one on one defenders - Dallas adjusted for this, the Raps have not. To me there are 2 big differences; one is when Dirk came in he played PF and had a chance to develop fully in that role. Bargs has played SF, PF, C and has never had that opportunity to grow in the position that fits him best. Two, will he hustle like Dirk has. To me thats the biggest X factor as all the tools are there.
