Default Slam Online: NBA Top 25 players who are under 25 yrs old (Bargs at 21)

Quote:
21) Andrea Bargnani | F/C | Toronto Raptors
Age: 24 years, 7 months and 27 days
Years Pro: 4

Bargnani has improved his offensive output and rebounding numbers in each of the last two seasons. Other than Chris Bosh, the former first overall pick was the only consistent offensive performer for Toronto last season (Iím calling you out, Hedo!). For the first time in his career, Bargnani did not have a single bad month. Inconsistency (see JR Smith) used to be this 7-footerís problem, but it may be a thing of the past for him. He loves to take three-pointers as opposed to posting up. Like Beasley and Aldridge, this may explain why he doesnít grab more rebounds. Still, Bargnani has been a great three-point shooter over his four-year career, so I donít see any need for him to abandon those shots anytime soon. If Bosh leaves Toronto and the Raptors are not able to sign a star free agent, Bargnani will have to be THE GUY for Canadaís only remaining team. I donít think Bargnani is ready to take on the task, but if the opportunity arises, heíll have to do his best to prove me wrong.

I would still take Bargnani over Beasley and Aldridge. But no way can Bargnani be the leader of this team yet.

I would take Aldridge over Bargnani but agree with him over Beasley.

It's a toss up for Bargs and Aldridge... both are perimeter oriented... Bargnani would be my choice...

I go with Bargnani. Aldridge is just a fade away jump shooter. But Bargnani is the whole package offensively. Also Bargnani is stronger and plays better 1 on 1 defense. But ya Aldridge can actually rebound, something Bargs cant lol. Overall Bargnani is still the better pick imo.

Aldridge is a winner. Aldridge has been the No. 2 guy on team that has made the playoffs and approaches 50 wins every season. Bargnani has struggled to be the No. 2 guy for team stuck as a lottery team. The last team the Raptors were making the playoffs was behind Bosh and the tandem of Ford & Calderon. If Bargnani is your No.1 & No.2 option, your guaranteed to be a lottery team.

I agree somewhat. Statswise they are almost identical. But down the stretch Aldridge does the dirty work to win. But his Portland teams have had incredible depth and a good coach something the Raptors have never had with Bargnani as a second option. Tough to compare the two really. I have seen Aldridge play twice in Portland and he is such a frustrating player to watch with all the fade aways he shoots. Its stupid because both could be way better than they actually are if they just drove to the hoop more instead of shooting jumpers.

But that list is a joke. Kevin Love is ahead of ANdrea, like wtf??

I think Beasley might eat most peoples comments for breakfast this year...
But only if he is traded to another team.
Wade takes any chances of Beasley being the go to guy away.

In Miami, the offence goes pass the ball to Wade if your open and he passes to you then shoot if not pass it back to Wade. So how could this head case flourish?

I know it has been said in the past that he might/is a head case but the college numbers don't lie...

SEASON TEAM MIN PTS REB AST TO A/T STL BLK PF FG% FT% 3P% PPS
2007-2008 KSU 31.5 26.2 12.4 1.2 2.9 .40 1.3 1.6 2.6 .532 .774 .379 1.50

He has shown flashes of those numbers at times in the NBA so we should all know he is capable of them.

All I know is at some point the light is gonna turn on again for this kid & he is going to explode!

if you look at Bargs doesn't rank to badly, I actually would have him ahead of alderidge, only reason why LA is ahead of Bargs is because of media coverage

I disagree with jennings he should be in the top 10 also

if you look at Bargs growth, all the guys ranked ahead of him after 10 Bargnani has made them look foolish

Beasley is a gifted player. He needs the ball, he needs to be on the floor. He needs a coach and a GM that give him confidence. He never had that in Miami.

Beasley and Bargnani are both a couple of slackers. Surely you guys have noticed how much effort it takes to get anywhere in this league. Forget about the talent. So much talent has been wasted in the NBA it hurts. Neither Bargnani or Beasley care enough to play two ways consistently and win as a consequence. A young player with a ton of talent can get away with that for a couple of years. A total commitment to defense is not always automatic. But with those guys, defense is such an extension of how they are doing offensively, as it pertains to their mental approach, that it just drags their teams down during any stretch where they are not hitting shots.
