Default Bargnani: Is it his knee, fatigue or confidence?

OK, it is just me or are there multiple excuses right now for Bargnani's regression?

People need to make up their mind because it was first his hyper-extended knee, then it was fatigue from playing ball this summer and now its his lack of confidence. What gives?

"He's even now to the point where that deficit of confidence is resulting in him making some mental errors out there on the floor. Then he's caught in that sort of thing and he feels like he might be coming out of the game at some point soon.

Personally i think it's confidence from switching to a post game style. I don't buy the not starting thing or the knee thing because he struggled long before he got hurt. He's just a young kid with huge expectations being asked to learn a new position that is far away from his comfort zone. He is rushing shots when he is getting them and needs to man up and settle down. It'll come back. I'm not happy about removing Rasho from the startin glineup but i'll deal i guess.

I tend to agree with, "Sick, Wicked And Nasty!" Its got alot to do with confidence and feeling comfortable. Bargs is being asked to play the game in a way he has never had to in his life. Being a young guy and trying to get him to change in the NBA is a tough go for anyone. I stated it before, don't throw out what Bargs is strong at, let him play to his strengths and slowly work in the post game for him, he will find it easier and will help with his confidence.

Bargnani is most overrated player in league! i'm from Slovenia and fan of Rasho who deserves more minutes instead Bargnani, he can't play defence and he sucks! Most clever thing Raps can do is to TRADE HIM!!

My new best friend.

Yeah, I know Bargnani doesn't suck eventhough I said so because he frustrates the hell out of me, but I do think he's not a fit for this team here but definitely somewhere else. Only problem in dealing him right now is that his value isn't at what it could be which means we'd get the end of the shaft on any deal Colangelo makes which could potentially involve Bargnani.

But yeah, for the centre position currently .... without a doubt Rasho's a much better option than Andrea is.
