Bargnani is a good player and can be very productive on a contending team BUT his role and the expectations for him in Toronto being a former #1 pick is proving to be too much. Time to cut the losses and move on. Can't be worried about fatigue,a calf strain or getting his jumper going. 5/17 tonight although he got to the line.
