New Coach for Raps

Quote:

In particular, Herbert will be working with Croatian guard Roko Ukic, about to start his rookie NBA season, and third-year centre Andrea Bargnani, who regressed last year after a promising rookie season.

Herbert is familiar with both from his time in Europe. Australian rookie Nathan Jawai will be a focus, too.

Quote:

He will begin to work with Bargnani when the big Italian arrives in Las Vegas this month. Before those sessions start, he will "pick the brain" of David Blatt, Bargnani's head coach at Benetton Treviso and a close friend of Herbert.

"He has tremendous potential, but he's young," Herbert said of Bargnani. "But of course, there are a lot of expectations on him as the No. 1 pick."

We should have "picked" Blatt himself instead of just his buddy and his brain... :(

I'm glad to see they are focusing on Bargnani's development. First bringing in JO who seems to be interested in teaching him, and now his old coach. If he is motivated enough I think we could see him improve greatly this season.

I heard him talking with the Bobcat while channel surfing last night. He mentioned that toughening Bargnani up will be his main focus, and primarily in terms of mental toughness.

BTW - just so there is no confusion Major - this is not his old coach, but someone who knows his old coach as well as european talent in general.

Oh, my bad. Must be getting confused with someone else
