Tecnically, if he gives only 50 % effort, Bargs would be a huge asset for this team, its his lack of motivation that kills his play and slowly poisons the teams play.
When he is off on offense he should bust his ass of on defense to counter his weak night, but the opposite is happening all the time.

Its not a problem of talent (he has a ton),
its not a problem of being able to lay down that potential (he has done it before, even in some consistence way)

its all a problem of motivation:
btw. he has gone back to his former self (not giving a shit) since he parted ways with his fiance, and before he had his biggest jump as he made up this relationsship. Seems as his heartproblems are stronger than the multi-M$ he is making.
good point
