Default Can Smitch light a fire under Bagnani's arse?

Well, Doug Smith in his blog today is wondering if what Sam did to Andrea last year will work again this season and get him back on track.

I take you back just over a year, Nov. 19, 2006 in Denver to be exact, when Andrea Bargnaniís rookie season turned around, as did the opinion of coach Sam Mitchell held of him.

It was an off-day on a west coast trip and the Raptors had sucked. Mitchell had no idea whether the No. 1 pick was tough enough to play in the NBA and the kid really didnít know how tough the NBA was every night.

The bigs all went to a local gym, one ball, four or five games (the memory blurs on that point); ball put in paint, two bigs told to go get it, guy could do almost anything he wanted to win.

Bargnani impressed enough with his desire that Mitchell gave him a big run the next night in Utah and the kidís season sort of took off from there.

I mentioned that night to a coach last week and his eyes twinkled. ďYeah, put him in there with Joey, see who comes out.Ē

Not sure Samíll do it again, thatís the kind of drill that works once, but it might be something to try.

Put him in there with Joey? Joey didn't want to do shit when TJ was on him. I say put him in there against Jamario. Jamario would waste him.

Joey came out and had a big night the day after TJ was all over him at practice. Personally, I think that whole "light a fire under a guy" stuff doesn't always work and maybe it doesn't more often than it does. I really think Bargnani just needs to relax, take a break and get things in perspective. Notwithstanding the past few games, he has been having a decent season. He has been absolutely miserable the past few games and I really think he just needs to get laid. Seriously. I'm talking a chick who's pushing three-fitty. Something where when you walk into the locker room, you are going to be so ashamed of yourself the whole night, that you won't even be thinking on the court, you'll just be playing.

LrRrAd...you're the chubby chaser, right? Got a few from the past you can line up for Bargs?

and why ISN'T he taking the ball to the hoop at all this year. Last year he did it quite a bit. This year: nothing. It's like he either settles for a three or a long 2 after making one dribble.

C'mon Gino! mix it up!

350? Wow, that's huge. My rule is never date a girl who could play O-Line for the Miami Dolphins. Now, line-backer (in CFL terms)/strong safety(NFL) weight, and we're talking. I think I can pull something out of my sleeve for Bargs.

gotta give credit to SJ for that one (he used it a while back). I think it'll be my nickname of choice though.

Wow, she's um...somethin'. Lol. Good Lord. I guess that's what the saying, "More bounce to the ounce" means. Yikes!
