You really believe it's that clear cut don't you? Lol

It's a lot opf factors (less so for Bargs since he was here last season):

-Lowry playing with new teammates and getting injured early which disrupted everything for him and everyone else.
-Casey changed his philosophy from last season to a more offensive team which hurt our D.
-Casey's overall approach and rotations were horrible
-Our bench often also looked like shit
-Losing a lot of close games early killed our confidence and the losses snowballed, including when Jose started for 2-3 weeks in November

I will say that Bargnani baffles me, he bought in last season so I don't know if he just didn't buy in but he came in out of shape and has looked awful from pretty much game one.
