Default Bargnani's shooting form as compared to a year ago

... is 100, no, 100,000, no, 100,000,000 million times uglier.

Remember how silky it was last year, it was pure butter. Now he heaves it. I mean it's obvious to see where this is coming from, lack of confidence and trying to hard when he releases it, but anyways. I was just thinking today how I'd forgotten how nice his release looked last year. Now he isn't any better at 3 pointers than Bosh and TJ in most games.

I'm expecting the maybe the myriad of leg problems may have something to do with it too.

Haven't we read that he has an achilles problem or sore achilles? If so, then that explains everything. You can't jump and land on your feet with that type of injury and it could really explain why he hasn't had any lift at all. Also, I think we've read his back is sore. Again, if it's his lower back, it could be a pain reaching all the way down to his legs/knees. If he lands on his feet again, he could be putting pressure on that part of his back and again, a reason why he has no lift.

His shooting percentages are not that far off this season but this year he went on long dry spells...


...........FG% 3P% FT%
2006/07 0.427 0.373 0.824
2007/08 0.386 0.345 0.840

When your previous strenght becomes one of your many weaknesses, there's not much to your game. Bargs's shot sucks this year - be it because of injury or whatever. The fact is it sucks, and the result is that he (pretty much) sucks becuase of it. His game is way too one dimensional.

This year has been pretty much a write off, and i really don't think he should be counted on in the playoffs.

Better luck next year.

I would like someone to teach Delfino to shoot freethrows. IDK how nobody has adressed him and told him that you dont have to do that thing he does with his feet when he shoots em.

On the plus side he improved his free throw shooting, and i'd bet he made it to the line more times per game

..but yeah, the shooting inconsistancy and general suckiness was so disapointing this year
