Amazing Andrea rookie summer league mixtape
 

All I gotta say is wow. I've never seen this kind of effort from him.

Rimpianto 03-28-2011 02:27 PM

He looks a lot lighter and quicker.

Peroti 03-28-2011 03:13 PM

Haha that looked OK. But still it is a mixtape. And he only shot long two's all the mixtape. And tha Summer Lague has never showed us who can play... Only who cannot play. Aaaaand from watching this it only looks like Andrea has not developed anything during his time and the NBA. Only gotten thicker and looking out of shape like Hedo last year.

Aaaaaand.... most importantly. I hate him :crying:

AP we miss you!!!!!!!!!!! 03-28-2011 03:17 PM

I was a huge bargnani supporter until this season. He just isn't improveing at the pace I expected on defense and rebounding. I'm hoping he stays for one more season and if he doesn't change by then. He should get traded.

But he stretches the floor!!!

T'was sarcasm but, yes a valid point.

Look how quick he was. Also, look at that effort and look at how much his teammates are likin' him. Ahhhhhhh, what could've been. :sigh:

when you are a rookie trying to create your career, of course hes gonna play with a high intensity. its like he wants it bad so he plays hard.

jeffb 03-28-2011 06:56 PM

Who cares, Joey Graham looks like an all-star during summer league.

creative1mm 03-28-2011 06:59 PM

nothing has changed.. that is summer league, competition is more deep in NBA.. you have scouting reports etc.. and he still standing outside instead of being in the paint..

LightsOut 03-29-2011 12:11 AM

I seriously think it's because they're rebuilding, meaning no playoffs, meaning lack of motivation etc. That doesn't make it ok for andrea to not give a 100% but you can kind of just see that he doesn't care this season. So as long as he is a raptor next season if there is a next season than he'll increase that average as long they're competing for a playoff spot instead of just developing

Andrea Bargnani - Mar. 28, 2011 | video | Raptors

anyone else watch this video?

he's asked what he specifically needs to work on as the season comes to an end, he replies with "jumpshot, dribble, low post"

does triano not even address his d and rebounding??
:cookie:

lmfao he really says "jump shot, dribble, low post" just like that. I wonder what he's going to add to his arsenal this summer I'm getting tired of "pump fake, dribble, score".

hes smiling while saying "what ever, a lot of stuff" he knows what the fuck he needs to work on.

Ah yes, the honeymoon. I remember this time well. I graduated, got my license, my first job, and the Raps drafted Bargs within the same week. All was right. Five years later, here I am: drunk, smug... impotent. FML.

He really did look like the second coming of Dirk. But as he bulked up he became more awkward and mechanical.

Bulked up? I support Bargs but I don't think he's bulked up that much (at least not as much as should have).

Last season he was noticeably bigger imo.

fancylad 03-29-2011 09:39 AM

Bargnani has come into every season bigger than the one before. Photos can only tell part of the story when it comes to something like this depending on what angle the picture was taken at or what have you. All i know from watching him and this team for the past 5 years is that yes he has undoubtedly put in good work in the gym pretty much every offseason.

The glaring problem with his game is not the effort off the court, it's the effort on the court.

And for what that first video shows, i still think Bargnani is a good offensive player. That part of his game has not gotten worse. It's the defence and the defensive effort that's a disaster.

Anyone notice that his jumper was much quicker and smoother back then, he was also a lot more mobile than he is now.
