Hoopsworld: Bargnani as NBA's Most Improved?
Well, some of us may have written him off (OK, maybe not some of you but just me), but Hoopsworld feel that Andrea could be in the running for the league's most improved player this season. :face4:

The plan is to move Bargnani to the small forward, where he will be allowed to spot up and take advantage of mismatches while Chris Bosh and O'Neal handle the dirty work inside. If Bargnani doesn't thrive in this situation, it's time to stick the bust label on him.

Sounds like a pretty sarcastic compliment...however, it's pretty accurate?

Hedo in Orlando isn't much shorter than Andrea and he's been doing fine at the 3. Andrea has the skill set to play the three... Defense will be an issue though.

I think Andrea will make a big improvement just because of his extra strength, being 100% healthy and the fact that he won't be forced to play in the middle instead of his natural position, the forward.
