Seems like Italy only goes as Bargs goes.

how many boards did he have??

MARTYNAS 08-24-2011 03:20 PM

Greece play best D in FIBA Europe IMO. 28 on them is beast. 19 rebounds looks even more incredible, but it was against BYU, it just proves that level is completely different.

Superjudge 08-24-2011 03:38 PM

I got more than hope... I've been appreciating his skills for years now. Break through the negativity and you'll feel like Truman Burbank after a wild ride on the deep blue sea. Fiji baby!

maybe he should take a page out of Joey Bats twitter and start using Beastmode!

Raptor36 08-24-2011 03:59 PM

he had 3 blocked shots too so 19 reb and 3 blocks in 20 minutes even against a college team is not bad. he had 10 rebounds against bulgaria yesterday.

box92 08-24-2011 04:01 PM

dam i guess his new girl is really making him grab the boards :P

LX 08-24-2011 04:01 PM

All I have is hope for some trade value to come out of it. Maybe they fell in love with him in Utah.

jrob23 08-24-2011 04:01 PM

I remember BYU not having a player over like 6'7 lol except that one kid who got kicked off the team for having sex

the reason they got eliminated from the tournament was cause they were dominated on the boards and in the paint.. so i wouldnt take too much from this.. a little bit encouraging though i guess.

Here's the thing, bargnani's problem isn't that he can't, it's that he won't. Showing a willingness to go after boards is a good sign. If he would fight harder, he could easily get 8+ rebounds in the NBA. Nobody is asking him to average a double double, just to be average on the boards and on D would make him a stud based on his offensive prowess.

right now the money, something i've been saying for a while now also

The problem is that getting lost on defense puts him at a disadvantage all too often anyways. During average NBA play he loses track of the ball, or his man, or both. Put him against guys that don't run much of an offense, and don't get physical and he always looks great. I think he would love to grab boards if he could maintain an advantage while providing some resistance defensively. I would love to be able to hit a major-league fastball. But I wouldn't even get my swing started before it was past me. It would look like I had no interest in trying, but I'd be wanting to try like he'll.

Superjudge 08-24-2011 05:29 PM

no no no no...

this is a +Bargs thread.

"Help us Obiwanbargnani, you're our only hope" type stuff.

:)

19 boards in 20 minutes can only be seen as good, even if it's against HS midget girls (in which case he's almost guaranteed to duplicate)


Nice talk on this thread..... nICE god dammit!
