Question Smith: Do You Think Bargnani Will Ever Be As Good As Bosh As A Player?

Doug's answering fans questions today regarding this past season and one fella asked the following:

Quote:
Do think Bargnani will ever be as good as Bosh as a player. Average 20 & 10 and make the all star every year.

Doug Smith: There are TWO 20-10 bigs in the NBA. That is not a statistical level Bargnani is likely to ever meet. Can he be an all-star? As a backup centre to Howard maybe. But Dwight's got that job cemented"

I don't even think Bargs will ever even get 20 double doubles in a season.

Its gonna happen, cause dough said it wouldnt.

Edit:

It will never happen as long as Bosh and Bargs are on the same team, because Bosh will always be given the number 1 option tag.

Probably not just because Bargs doesn't seem like he will be a 10+ rebound per game player in his career. But, if he keeps being aggressive on the offensive glass, I could see him snagging 2.5 to 3 offensive boards a game, and then it's just a matter of putting most of his effort into defensive rebounds. He needs to learn how to box out better; his positioning is OK but he's not aggressive enough on pinning guys on his back/hips, nor his he aggressive enough with the elbows coming down with the board - a necessary deterrent to keep the pesky little guys away.

I don't think he will. I think Bargs needs Bosh to command double teams so Bargs game can open up a little more

I don't know...He had 6 this year and he had 6 other games with 9 rebounds.

I think a full season of playing big minutes I bet he can come close to 20 double doubles.

So 10/10 (which is a stretch), should start ahead of Bargnani who can probably average 20PPG/7-8RPG??


POB seems like a guy that plays hard when he feels like it, and half the time looks like he wishes he was anywhere but on the court.

and the reason why this thread has so few posts is that most andreea haters are also doug haters, and their decision center got stuck

you got it wrong like usual, moremilk

bosh supporters don't hate Bargs - we just know how important Bosh is.

My issue with the Bosh Bargs thing is this, they are both power forwards.

Niether seems to really have the center spot figured out.

POB just needs to be coddled, the other coaches were so mean to him, he didnt know his role, it was unfair, he was confused in a big city with big lights!!! o wait.... nvm
