the reason they got eliminated from the tournament was cause they were dominated on the boards and in the paint.. so i wouldnt take too much from this.. a little bit encouraging though i guess.
Here's the thing, bargnani's problem isn't that he can't, it's that he won't. Showing a willingness to go after boards is a good sign. If he would fight harder, he could easily get 8+ rebounds in the NBA. Nobody is asking him to average a double double, just to be average on the boards and on D would make him a stud based on his offensive prowess.
