Not talking about "potential"... not talking about "skillset"... I mean actually watching the games and judging his performance beyond his atrocious volume shooting.
WHAT makes this guy better than Bonner? The fact that he can create his own shot once in a while?
those two guys, bonner in particular, are 3-pt specialists who clearly defined roles who could never hope to stray from their roles. Bargnani
is bigger, stronger, much better ball handler, quicker than bonner and a much better post player than either. And he's a better individual defender than both.
I agree that under a strong coach like pop, he'll either play the right away, or find himself out the door in a hurry. I just disagree it's a foregone conclusion the latter will happen. He's skilled enough and obedient enough that he may just learn to play properly there.
