I didn't watch the game on Sunday, how did NinjaRaptor fare? I had high hopes for that one.

By all accounts the feeling was mutual.

When Aaron is healthy it is the end of the road for Bargs and that might be the best card ever

sidenote: Bargnani man to man defence is a myth, always has been. I'll bet my entire sack(two balls and a scrotum) that there's not a scouting report on this planet that says bargnani's man to man is even average. Hell how can you play man to man when your too dumb to be in position most the time at the spot thats easiest to be in position for. HE'S JUST TOO DUMB, TOO SOFT, TOO LAZY!

to add, if i turn out to be wrong i will not be stepping to the plate like benzo to admit it. I will instead pull a disappearing act as i want no part of a society where Bargnani is widely praised

Without a doubt it will be telling and decisive. I believe the three previous were pretty much telling and decisive, and the coach should get a bit of a chance to have the deadwood cleared for him. But I could be wrong. We will see. This thread is little bit like the To All the Doubters Thread....should be epic. I've repeated myself enough already so I'll keep myself out of it from here on in.

Ed Davis will be peaking around the same time that DD will be, and with a smaller contract than Bargs. Ed is the PF of the future in Toronto. Jonas is the center of the future. That leaves Bargs to come off the bench (unless those spots are still filled by Amir and Alabi).

It seemed to me that Bargs let the team down last year. Whether or not he was capable of leading the team to the playoffs is beside the point.

Bargs was, and is, capable of turning up to training camp focused, in shape, and with a more refined repertoire. He's capable of being a leader on the floor, and in practice, with his intensity and effort. He's capable of those things because every basketball player is.

Most NBA players don't have the opportunity to be the team leader and face of the franchise. He did, but he didn't prepare himself for that role, and didn't execute that role.

Maybe being traded (or amnestied) will put a chip on his shoulder, and he'll come back from that a much improved player. I think it's entirely possible - he has the talent. But if that's what it takes to wake him up, then that's what needs to happen.

I think that whatever success Bargs has will only increase his trade value. Right now I don't think that he is tradeable - at least not for anything other than another bad contract.

If we're talking about "saving money" I'm sure that that $10M could be better spent, no?

Fak, at least Bosh was a legit all-star and could command a double-team on a regular basis.

Anytime you talk about a top 5 player at his position you're going to have to pay the max to keep him. That's the biz.
