Bosh was 24 in 06-07 and you think he had maxed out (or are you not agreeing with high). By 26-27 you know what you have in a player most of the time. Bargnani is a very good scorer who has trouble rebounding consistently and will probably never be consistent defensively long term. He is what he is. Gets my wrath? Hahhh

I've said he's been playing great. I also said that it was too early after six games to think he was all of a sudden going to be an all-star. I don't see anything wrong with being realistic after 6yrs of seeing him. I also pointed out that most here were not big Bargnani fans to say the least a month ago. People got caught up in a six game stretch where he looked amazing, which he absolutely did, especially with his effort.

Remember a couple years ago when JO was traded and Bargnani looked amazing and people thought he had turned the corner. What happened after that? How was he last season? I've seen him look great for stretches too many times, only to fall back into bad habits. And because of that i'm trying not to all of a sudden think this time is any different. Sue me!

As for Z-bo, he was a double double player before last year, but his attitude in the past lost him some respect. All of a sudden his team takes off and people now point to him. Whatever.
