In an interview with La Stampa, Bargnani said that due to the uncertain political and financial climate of his homeland, he was going to apply for Canadian citizenship.

Before anyone gets too excited about Bargnani playing for Canada, he also told the web site that he will still play for the Italian national team next summer as it attempts to qualify for Eurobasket 2013 in Slovenia

He's just going to go ahead and bail on sinking that ship in Italy?

I guess he hopes to stay with the Raptors, or he'd still be a foreigner with an American team if he gets Canadian status and gets cast away.

he's trying to show he cares for this team, city, country. he's trying to show his devotion to the fans so they will look at whatever improvements he has on the defensive end with an open mind and not bash him because he didn't turn into howard over summer. the man loves the city, and i feel is seriously trying this season. i know it's been said before but theres just something this season showing a spark under his ass. plus last year was his first year as the first option on offense; is it so crazy that he tried to focus too much on being Bosh on offence and as a result forgot about playing D? heck, Bosh wasn't all that super on D while he was here either.

I think it has nothing to do with basketball or the Raptors at all.
It was just some random criticism of the political situation here in Italy. Meh, I've been back in Italy just one year and already planning to move back to Scotland asap.

I'm thinking Andrea has come to the realization that Mozarella was created for the sole purpose of having people burn the roof of their mouth. And he's just finding that to be unpalatable.
