WTF!!!! Stop with this nonsense!!!
He thinks if he plays PF, no need to rebound or play D.. WTF!

Zack Randolf is a pf, Kevin Love is PF and they all average over 10 rebounds!!!
Who tha hell he think he is??

Someone needs to find some quotes from a few years ago when he said Bargs was a 5. Hes not a PF. Making him one and drafting a center just compounds the problem.

Accept what he is. You told us to all wait 5 years to see him progress and now hes in year 6 and still terrible in the areas we need most. It's time for him to go already.
for the record, year 6 is next year....

second, taking an absolute stance on any player like that is what makes a franchise look foolish. It may not happen here, but it could.... saying it's time to go is like saying we're a playoff team already.

Zach Randolph was considered a cancer to his team for the better part of his career..... he has been known to be an atrocious defender and had never been on a consistent winner until Memphis. Just to put some perspective in there.

Nobody said he won't play D or won't rebound.... he's just not doing it often enough.... that's fixable. You're trying to make it sound like the sky is falling.

he is only trying to sell Bargnani he doesn't mean half the compliments he says. He's not going to speak the truth on live television telling the whole fcking world that Bargnani sucks balls and i'm going to trade him this off season. He just trying to make Bargnani sound good to other teams so they'll want him.

He once again brought up Tyson Chandler and the trade that was yanked at the last second by MJ. He must still lose sleep over that one. lol


IMO he will do everything he can to get Chandler here this summer just so he can thumb his nose at Jordan. Not that it will happen, but it's a can he'll likely kick pretty hard.

yeah, because other GM's are dumb as fuck and would buy into anything a rival GM would tell them..... sounds about right.

Considering how well Chandler has looked this year, people would be kissing BC's ass if that move went through..... Of course he's pissed. Would have been a great fit here and you might have spent all year in a good mood as a result. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.... but at least your leafs made the....

and yet it was Bosh who took care of our boards at the 4 while he (at 5) were ready for an open-assist behind the arc.

and i'm sorry, i don't understand what you mean by 'accommodate'. is that a special treatment or something?? no one's talking about turning into a Ben Wallace-type, people just are just saying that, as one of the tallest guys in the squad, grab that damn ball. or perhaps you expect our point/shooting guards to do it?

Either BC is still delirious about Bargnani or he is upping his trade value.
If the former, get rid of him asap, if the latter, extend him asap!

It'd probably be helpful to put that in the OP, just a thought.

Yeah, unless he puts Bargs/Davis at the PF. If Bargs doesn't rebound he would eventually be coming off the bench or traded. But then Amir would have to be dealt, and that would be a risk since I still say we'll have to trade Bargs eventually anyway. I mean, I guess if you surround Bargs with a Chandler type of Center and Davis and maybe keep a cheaper Evans it might be ok but Bargnani still needs to improve defensively. I'd rather have Davis/Amir/Evans for a combined 10-11Mil then have Bargnani play the 4 @ 10Mil.

I use to like the idea of Bargs playing PF, that was until I seen what Ed Davis is capable of..
get rid of Bargs..

if that guy starts next year I hope he is not the number 1 option on offense, because he makes poor decisions

Actually, yes, to a point.

If you want to trade a guy you simply cannot come out in the press and trash him, or completely disintegrate any thoughts that he can improve.

I'm not sure what you think the President and GM wold say about any player.... the coach, ya, he can rip into his guys. The GM, at least publicly, really shouldn't. It's a bad move.

BC is a slick GM. I like him.
