I must have missed all the games where Bargs took over in the final 5 minutes and led us to victory.

I have no idea what you're basing your opinion on. As good as Bargs has been so far (through only 5 games) he STILL isn't better than Bosh was when he was here.

Does he rebound better than Bosh? No.

Does he get to the rim better than Bosh? No.

Is he better defensively? No.

Is he better than Bosh off the dribble? I don't think so, but it's debateable.

The ONLY advantage that Bargs has is his long distance shooting. That's it.

I'm happy that he's started well but he's got a long way to go.
You keep talking about Bosh like he was the king of Toronto, I think you're being a little too narrow-minded.

Does he rebound better than Bosh? No, I'll give you that one.

Does he get to the rim better than Bosh? Easily.

Is he better defensively? Not yet, but Bosh is no defensive stud either.

Is he better than Bosh off the dribble? Bosh barely uses his dribble. Andrea takes advantage of slow defenders by putting it on the floor, this season especially.

CB was a great, great player for us, I won't deny that. But give me the choice of building around Bosh or Bargnani, I'll take Bargs. But to each their own. :cookie:
