Default Bargnani on the trade, his time in Toronto & new team

Quote:
Im not worried about second, third option, Bargnani said this morning. Its all about winning here. Doing as much as possible. Im really starving to win.

I think we can play against anybody, Bargnani added. This team can go very far. Im glad to be here. I just cant wait to start.

And he couldnt wait to be out of Canada.

I had a weird experience in Toronto, Bargnani said. I had good years and the last couple of years were bad. When you lose theres going to be frustration. Im going to do as much as possible and everything I can to help this team win.

Bargnani played just 35 games last season because of wrist and elbow injuries, speeding up his departure. Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Bargnani needs to become a better rebounder. Hes averaged just 4.5 rebounds in his career.

I got to get better in many aspects of the game, Bargnani said. I had so many injuries. Last year was tough for me. Im looking forward to helping the team in many ways.



-Andre Bargnani

Exactly. He could have taken a shot at the team, but he did not. It was just best for both parties to move on. I wish him luck, and he might need that with the NY media! Maybe having that sort of pressure on him all of the time may help keep him focused.

Notice the "couldn't wait to get out of Canada" comment when Bargnani said no such thing. Gotta love the American media.

So what you think Toronto's media didn't put pressure on him all the time?

& yet he still wasn't focused.

just lazy media, at this point, to some journalists, we've become a stereotype. It's like the polish jokes, if it wasn't politically incorrect, you'd still hear them all over. Since nobody takes offense when Canada is the butt of the joke, they keep doing it - guilt free xenophobia

Not a word of thanks for any of the fans that did support him in his time here. Classy to the end.

Are you for real? The fact we booed our own player is embarrassing. What do you want him to say?? I want to thank the fan for the support, while we booed him like fuck?! He will look like a joke if he were to say that.

We booed Calderon for a while and he thanked the fans.
