I challenge anyone to say the same about Bargs with a straight face.
Whoa - I'm not challenging that. I was arguing against a specific criterion for evaluating Bargnani's usefulness to the team. And as you so eloquently point out, it is not that important a criterion.

You can use "relied upon to play some tough, hard-nosed D" as your criterion and I won't argue with you.

I don't know why everyone keeps saying "you can't just look at the stats" when I was discussing the stat, and not the actual impact. I'm in favour of using the actual impact as the criterion, rather than the suggested statistic.
