Rosen's list of busts. (Raptors related)

Charley Rosen has made a list of recent top ten Pick busts. And guess what Bargnani is on this list.

What he says about Bargs: "Lacks the requisite athletisism to be an adequate defender as well as a consistent point producer".

The list is under the heading "straight shooting" :

Bargs is just the first one mentioned, not necessarily his top bust.

And I have Bargs as "disapointing to date".

whos charlie rosen?,has he watched a game this year?is he aware that Bargs has more blocks this year than such notable players like ak47,sheed,shaq,chandler and is a couple behind kg......i bet poor charlies article/blog isnt getting any hits and is under duress to produce some numbers...so he talks shit and gets noticed...i say who cares what he says.

You need to study your punctuation, young man. My guess is you were trying to say "And guess what, Bargnani is on this list."

I had to guess you forgot a comma or a question mark. I guessed wrong!! I thought you forgot a question mark. "And guess what Bargnani is on this list?"

Sleeping through that grade 8 English class is starting to bite you.

I think they should first define the term bust. The way I see it, you should be called a bust if you are ranked less than 10 places lower than the position you have been drafted. I'm not sure if I would call Bargnani a bust by this definition, nor would I call Noah one. Morrison is a bust, shelden williams is a bust, Bargnani and tyrus thomas are not. Underperforming - yes, bust - no.

Another silly guy who saw a Raptors game and thinks he knows everything about Andrea.
And he complains about his defense which is now his most consistent part of game. If his jumper doesn't fall sometimes (it did last 5 games, though), the defense is there almost every night. He did not reach his peak but he improved a lot on defense.

yeah - everytime I read something on espn about andreea, they always complain about his defense, which shows me right away that they're watching him through the boxscore ...

When Rosen or any reporter wants page hits, they simply badmouth the Raps. And they always get their internet statistical attention.

generalizing in one phrase why a player is a bust may be true, but definitely not convincing.

ahh it's all good, chuck loves to tear up the raps... always has.

Bargs is dropping something like 25 and 6 the last 5... he'll be fine... nice kind of bust to have around methinks.
