Raptors Bargnani heavily Criticized in Team Meeting

Quote:
Then there is Andrea Bargnani, Toronto’s windy avatar of dissatisfaction. According to sources, the team meeting following the 131-99 loss in Utah involved heavy criticism of Bargnani from his teammates, with some also directed towards point guard Lowry for overly self-centred play. But Bargnani, as always, was the focus.

Anybody can see why. He is back to being his own disinterested self, hoisting jumpers and standing straight-legged. Nobody has ever been able to reach him in his seven-year career; not Colangelo, not his coaches, not his teammates. Last season he was half-involved; this season he has melted back into his unformed puddle of untapped talent. He is grabbing the lowest percentage of available rebounds, 7.6%, of his career. It’s the worst basketball he has played since his disastrous sophomore season. He is finally being shopped, which means even Colangelo is giving up the ghost. But right now, there are no takers.

He got paid, he doesn't care. Some people are just like that, its unfortunate. Going through the motions.

Actually I think the only thing that will light a fire under him is if/when we trade him.

Pathetic.

Unless we can't get a decent player. I have a feeling we'll have to sweeten the pot to get a decent return.

Casey and the players said nothing of the meeting would be shared with the media, yet suddenly the media knows what happened?

It's highly possible Bargnani and Lowry were targeted the most but I would love to see these sources.

They kept saying "were keeping it in the family"

So unless a player went and told the media on his own, don't see how they know this

I also think targeted is a strong word. I'm guessing they all had a say but i doubt they were yelling at each other and ripping on each other. This team though is extremely frustrated.

If it's true I worry because it looks like the meeting didn't work, we got beat by double digits last 2 games and both Lowry and Bargnani look the same

Wow, a team is splintering and there are some players making themselves available as sources. Shocking. Truly shocking.

Why would a meeting do anything to change Bargnani 7 years into his floor stretching ways?

Or the team could be splintering, in which case the coach can keep it in house all he wants, but he can't force the players to not be sources.

So it's ethical for a players teammate to go the media and say we heavily criticized this guy or that guy?

That's just causing more harm than good
