Bargs may not be a star, but he is a starting quality player, especially if he truly turned any sort of corner with his play at the start of last season. I see no reason he can't learn to be a Dirk level defender (devil's advocate: haven't seen much to prove he can either).
I think this year really screwed our evaluation of him, because we can't really know if the Bargs
from the first 13 games can be sustained for a whole season or not. Teased us with what could be.
A big who starts & plays 33+ minutes and averages 5 boards a game is starting quality? Dirk averages 3+ more boards and is a good help defender.
I don't think Bargnani
will be better than Sullinger.
