would be far less.
I agree that it's not just Bargnani, the whole team is struggling right now, but I still don't understand the money issue here. What's your point? Bargnani
isn't paid enough to be truly efficient?
Also, I don't think people expect him to be the number 1 option on the offence; to me though it's kind of the issue here, he actually is the number 1 option, but mostly because he's shooting every time he gets the ball. So the night he has trouble finding the basket he is nearly useless to the team, except maybe the fact that he improved his defence lately.
