LOL, I'm still on the fence about Andrea. I'm convinced he would have had a solid season if he wasn't forced to play a position he never played before. Center is far different than the forward spots. I think he will work out in this league, just maybe not with the Raptors.

If this was the 1980s, Haffa would be a star, because it was a rough and tumble league back then - even the early 90s with the Pistons and Knicks. But now with the superstars and a seemingly no touch league, he couldn't compete. That and the fact that he was a complete dolt - with short arms. Picture Grimace but built.

Please, Andrea will be fine.I predict a pretty good improvement next season (14PPG/7RPG).His first season was very good and i think that writting him off after his second season in the NBA is rediculous.He's 100 times better than Araujo was.:redbite:

Some are quicker to give up on someone than others. I'm more patient than that i guess. I think he had a bad season mainly because of the way he was utilized. I like Sam Mitchell but he shit the bed when it comes to the way he played Bargs IMO off the bench one minute then starting. I give him this next year to prove he's as good as i think he is. I'm not saying that he'll be a top 10 player in the league but he's much better than he showed last year.

Lets hope he comes to camp heavier, stronger and with more sound big man fundamentals. He should enter next season looking a lot better and if not then we'll know more clearly what the future holds. If John Lucas' boot camp style summer camp doesn't bring him around then I'm not sure what will.

Quote:
"It's like a war down there. It's like, hold, grab, hit. And that's what our guys need," said Mitchell, who also will encourage other young Raptors, such as Jamario Moon and Joey Graham, to attend Lucas' camp during the off-season. "They've got everything they need (treatment-wise) but when you go in that hellhole of a gym, they beat the s--- out of each other. And that's good. That's where you really learn how to play. There are no referees blowing their whistle, you have to call your own fouls. You argue a little bit. It will be good for all of them.
