Default Puckheads on McCowan show want Bargnani gone

McCowan says that reading between the lines of what BC told him, he thinks Bargnani gets traded before the trade deadline, for a big body.

He questioned his effort, and said that he went from being a one trick pony to being a no trick pony.

Jim Kelly said that Andrea's being a Jerk, by not doing his job and pouting because they won't let him play behind the arc.

They're kinda right, but being a bit too reflexive, I hope - I mean they are puckheads. And I'm not sure about BC's intentions. I'll have to try to listen to that interview if it's on the net.

LMAO .... Bobcat if a fuckin' knob. From his Primetime show right down to his corny Sportnet commercials. If he's right and AB is traded, I'll go into work naked one day.

As for Bargnani pouting, I haven't seen nor heard anything in the media about being a sour puss. If anything he's sucking it up and taking everything in stride. Unless I'm missing something. Has something been said to the media that Bargnan'si done or said?

Bargnani won't be traded for atleast another season.
Guaranteed.
So these reporters could shut the fuck up and just start encouraging the kid to step up his game, this crticsm is just screwing up his confidence even more.
McCowan should just stick to critizing the leafs because Raptors have a future and Bargnani is apart of it.

Bargnani is not making enough money to get anybody good for him... chance of him being traded this season is extremely low... less then 1%... BC will try to swing Dixon & Graham...

Why give up on the kid? Why? When he develops you could pose match up problems for centuries with him and Bosh. another reason t.o. media depresses me.

yeah just tired of this bullshit.
All these fans want is drama and trades, haven't we had enough mistakes, from signing babcock to trading carter, why take another risk when your 4th place in your conference and can put a match up with almost every team in your conference.
We can win and trading Bargnani for a big man wont do us any good, it wont make us imediate contenders.
Just patience, we got the perfect flowers and now just let them blossom.
I still believe in Bargnani, these Leaf reporters just need to stick with critizing the leafs, Bargnanis in his second year and the Raptors are a solid team.

LOL, yeah let's trade him for Reggie Evans so we can cement ourselves into the 2nd round this year. Haha, yeah, right. And Jim Kelly's comment? Wow. Pouting cuz they wont let him stay behind the arc? WTF? If anything he's been out there more since being re inserted for our offensive schemes to take the center away from the basket. That show fucking sucks anyway, it used to be ok when I was bored 2 years ago, now it's just unbearable to watch. No flow at all. It's like full court press now vs 2 years ago.

I don't think Andrea is pouting, but I do think he's been a bit of a jerk. The thing the puckheads miss is that he's gained nothing from being a jerk, and he's seeing that. Sam's the man, BC is behind him, Maurizio can only make so many excuses for him, so it's time to get to work.

Now let's see if next week they talk about whether Bosh is going to demand a trade or something.

there's only one trade I think colangelo would contemplate: andreea + rasho for gasol. Anything else is not going to happen, because we need a center if we let go of Andreea.

And I tend to agree (for once) with LX - it looks like andreea is a jerk ... And I wonder if it's that easy to change one's character. I would do this trade without blinking to be honest ...

Gasol is playing amazing the last games, so I dont see that happening for only rasho and bargs. And besides I still prefer to keep Bargs. We have to have more patience with him.

I think Conley can take alot of the credit too. Since he's come back, Gasol's been amazing. Just proving that Pau needs a good PG to help his game along. Much like many stars in this league.

Anyhow, we'd have to sweeten the pot because a Rasho & Andrea for Gasol wouldn't get it done considering Bargnani's stock is at an all-time low.

We have to wait until middle of season 3 before it's really set in stone what kind of player Barney will be for the rest of his career.

So many young big guys like Jermaine O'Neal, Darko, Okur, etc took a few years to come around in the NBA and find their game.

If this is true then there's something wrong with AB and he has no chance of being good.

bargnani is a #1 pick, and he already shown a lot last year. I think he still has plenty of stock remaining. Remember that all GMs picked him to be the best player in 5 years, and nobody belived he would contribute for a couple of years at least.

hes from italy,
he went from being the best to a struggling center who doesnt know how to play his position.
Its whether or not he steps up his game and makes the critsicsm lift him up and make him play better, hes playing harder, but not smarter.
Playing hard and smart will make him better, hes overthinking everything, the media is getting to him.
