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?
Yeah, take the 3pt shot from Bargnani and is it even a debate.
