Why is Italy's program so bad and behind the rest of the world?

Who knows, but beyond a few players, they really suck.

They're program sucks, It always has. They need to improve it, or else it'll have an effect of the players not wanthing to play there.

Didn't they win a silver medal in Athens in 2004?

Historically, Italy has always been one of the best teams in Europe. They also have a very good league. But they entered a very big institutional crisis some years ago and basically everything has gone to hell for them. Pretty sad.

wow. I know it's international play, and the off-season and all the rest of it. but bargs' numbers and overall play concern me a little bit, especially the 50 millions bucks in his pocket.

If he starts ahead of Derozan he'll probably get around 25MPG. But realistically he's probably looking at 20MPG, unless Derozan really struggles. Even if he does, i'm guessing Derozan will get around 20MPG as well, it's the only way he'll develope. And Triano has already said he wants to play him quite a bit. So i think 18-20MPG each @ SG and the other minutes will be Jack/Wright.
Funny though, Beli's numbers are par for the course. There's a reason why BC is so high on him. Those are pretty much his numbers for the last 3 years, except he shot for an overall higher FG%.

I too agree, his lack of production is down right scary! Especially seeing they werent exactly playing against stellar big men.

Yeah 8-10 shooting. Impressive.

Overall, 26pts on 18 shots is impressive.

Bargnani is quietly scaring me, hopefully he can prove us all wrong in the regular season. Maybe he isnt primed for international play anymore?

no, it has more to do with the problem in Italy. They probably messed with his head, told him sucked and to only shoot when people are in his face.

Actually Bargs has never shone wearing Italian colours, and during this qualification tournament he has been used in a very stupid way.
Most of his numbers are fault of the italian coach, although he seemed to be out of shape and a bit out of commitment.

But when you are a number one overall, going to be a star in the NBA, no matter how you are used, you are supposed to score 15 pts at least.
