Okay, the next stage in Bargnani’s development? Passing the basketball.

Every now and then, he’s a black hole at the top of the arc and until he starts looking for cutters or teammates in the corner or post-up possibilities with Bosh or O’Neal, you will be subjected to too many shots.

We’ve seen his passing abilities – and they can be impressive – but they’re usually only present when he’s driving the ball into traffic.

The kid’s been much improved over the last six weeks or so, but there are stages still to go.

Smith looking to generate some controversy = more action on his blog. I think we've seen Andrea give that quick pump fake, drive and dish more often than we care to. If anything, I'd like to see him be more selfish.

I'd like to see him pass on his drives sometimes. But I think that'll come

Last night was good. Bosh gets the "quitest 24 and 10" in NBA history... doesnt show up blah blah blah.

Why is it that when Bargs goes 1 for 11 (I havent seen that from Bosh this season) people cheer for him? Bosh's bad games against orlando etc... he goes for 18 and 9 and there are 10 threads about how he sucks..

But I'll agree part of the problem is that the Raptors have no offensive scheme which is the coaches fault. When Bargs gets it up top... it's an iso for him everytime it seems... no1 moves w/o the ball.. *sigh* our team sucks.

Andrea needs to fucking stop camping out at the 3 pt line like hes been doing the last couple of games. Pick, roll to 18, triple threat, shoot if no ones on you, and if a big guy rotates out fuck them up. Thats what he was doing very successfully and now the last couple of games hes turned into 2nd yr Andrea again.

Stop being a pussy and get inside of 24 feet.

That's so not true .... Andrea passes the ball, maybe his passes doesn't translate into assists, but he is not a ball hog. I think he takes Js that coaches tells him to take. Of course he still needs to learn a lot. So far, the opposite defense didn't come prepared to defend Andrea but Bosh, as soon as they realizes that Andrea can be a real treat than we will some the defense more focus on taking away what Andrea does right now. Here is where Andrea has to improve a lot, to pass out of traps and double teams.


BWT ... I rather have Andrea shooting the ball than passing to Moon

Andrea passes the ball but at the wrong times such as passing the ball to Bos in the lane with 2 guys on him

I'd like to see Andrea improve his driving skills. Dudes got the most mechanical run, then just flips the ball up and see if it goes in. If it does, it makes highlights. If it doesn't, he's a bonehead!

The thing is it's obvious Andrea will be a very big passing asset eventually. Other than his good hands, once he learns to get to the perimeter when the defence collapses on his drives, he'll rack them up. So I'm not too worried, he just has to get more comfortable with those aspects of his game, like with his hook shot thing

I've been the 4th or 5th option ever time i play ball, though i am the youngest by 2 or 3 years all the time.....anyway, Bargs needs to get his act together before we ship him of to "dirty" New York.
