LMA would have actually been an easier pick/sell than Bargs. He was/is good friends with Bosh, was a polished player coming out of a big program in college and had good size and skill. And at least he actually seemed to give a chit about rebounding and playing D.

Bargnani was just a bad, bad reach for B.C.

I'm still not convinced that any other GM would've taken him at #1.
