that's not true, generally Brook used to kill Andrea.
Bargs was better during the 1st Nets-Raps game of last season. That's all.

Consider this - 09-10, 4 Nets- Raps games:
Brook -- 35 min per game, 16.5 points, 8 reb, .568 FG%
Andrea -- 31 min, 13.5 points, 3.8 reb (!!!), .432 FG%

Even Brook's rookie season, he was arguably better face to face.

Either way - it's not just about who beats who in direct matchups. Yao used to murder Dwight back in 2008.
But when you account for everything else - performance against other teams, reliability etc, noone in his right mind would've taken Yao over Dwight.
Brook is a younger guy who had an off year but he hasn't missed a single NBA game (!) and he has much better career stats. He also generally outplays Bargs face to face.
How would someone consider Bargs better?
