bargnan and the Raptors — the seventh season of Andrea Bargnani in the Nba with only one goal: "I want to make the playoffs because it's frustrating play without reaching the post-season, after 4 years is really heavy. The talent is there, we are strong, and now it's up to us to put it together and prove on the field that are worth ". The magician he could taste the postseason with the Raptors only in his first two years in Toronto, with elimination in the first round in both cases. After the team went through four years of mediocrity, but Bargnani is grown to make the breakthrough at the beginning of last season. In the first part of the season, spurred by an excellent understanding with new coach Dwane Casey, the Roman athlete had emerged as a possible candidate for the all-Star Game. A calf injury has turned the dreams of glory by Bargnani: only 31 games played (66) with 33.3 minutes, 19.5 points and 5.5 rebounds. The offseason is served to the wizard for getting into sixth: "Unfortunately I was not able to go, but are delighted to qualify. I have fully recovered from the calf injury. For now everything is ok. I'm training 100% pushing and I had no problems. We hope that you continue so ". Bargnani has been following a program of physical labor of Italian national soccer coach Francis from 17th, taking care of the technical aspect with emphasis on shooting and dribble, but touching every aspect of the game. The sorcerer reappears and ready to continue the work started last year with Casey and integrate with new companions, around which there is enormous curiosity. The most important purchase for the immediate future is the play Kyle Lowry (from Houston), which scalzerā the veteran Calderon from Quintet (Spanish, expiration of contract, is on the market). If Bargnani is still referred to as the first offensive end, Lowry is preparing to become the leader of the team for its player Tan and great defender, who marry perfectly with the philosophy of Casey's game. Therefore, it will be crucial to grow now the Lowry-Bargnani, who could get a taste of the quality of new companion during informal workouts the last two weeks: "A very strong player. Even seeing him in training, he pulls out and comes up to the basket despite being small. Will be able both to score and draw the attention of the defense and then download for myself or for others ". Attention on two rookie Terrence Ross and Jonas Valanciunas. Lithuanian is likely to give a very limited contribution in training camp six days in Halifax, Nova Scotia, due to a calf that resentment is procured in training in recent days. The goal-Toronto playoff is on paper a milestone reached in a Eastern Conference where 5-6 teams will have no trouble reaching the post-season, but not easy because behind the handful of first there are many teams that can emerge. Toronto is part of this group and is already a good start. Eighth place is not a mirage.

For now everything is ok. I'm training and pushing 100% and I had no problems. We hope that it'll continue so ". Bargnani has been following a program of physical labor of Italian national team coach Francesco Cuzzolini, taking care also of the technical aspect with emphasis on shooting and dribble, but touching every aspect of the game. Il Mago comes back ready to continue the work started last year with Casey and integrate with new teammates, around which there is enormous curiosity. The most important purchase for the immediate future is the point guard Kyle Lowry (from Houston), which will replace the veteran Calderon from the starting five (The Spaniard, on an expiring of contract, is on the market). Though Bargnani is still considered as the first offensive weapon, Lowry is preparing to become the leader of the team for his tough attitude and great defence, who marry perfectly with the philosophy of Casey's game. Therefore, it will be crucial for the Lowry-Bargnani couple to gel fast. Bargnagni had a chance to check the quality of the new teammate during informal workouts the last two weeks: "A very strong player. Even seeing him in training, he pulls out and comes up to the basket despite being small. He'll be able both to score and draw the attention of the defense and then dish the ball for myself or for others ". Attention on two rookie Terrence Ross and Jonas Valanciunas. Lithuanian is likely to give a very limited contribution in the six days training camp in Halifax, Nova Scotia, due to a calf injury happened during a training session in recent days. The Playoff goal is on paper an achievable result in a Eastern Conference where 5-6 teams will have no trouble reaching the post-season, but not an easy task because behind the top teams there are many others that can emerge. Toronto is part of this group and is already a good start. Eighth place is not a mirage.

I really hope Barg/Lowry can play 78+ games this season.

Wouldn't mind them taking a rest for 2-3 games, but please no big injuries that will take months to recover..
