.... minimum 100 possessions, the best defender in the league by overall PPP allowed is Andrea Bargnani. .. uh.... I ...

BTW, your top-ten, min 100 possessions: Bargs, Hansbro, Taj, Gortat, Jordan, Collison, Bass, Asik, Holiday, Blake. TWO BULLS RESERVES!!!

So it's not like Bargs is among some weird outliers. Gortat, Jordan, Gibson, Asik, Holiday, Collison all with strong reps as defenders.

Should note on that list, it's Steve Blake. Not Blake Griffin.

A lot of this has to do with Dwayne Casey. He really appears to have gotten through to Andrea.

i just hope it wasn't because casey threatened to bench people that don't try, because now the whole team isn't trying so bargs won't feel threatened anymore

Now if we could get Ed Davis on that list!

Looks like Bargs is finally getting the message about defense. I think before when Triano was at the helm he only knew how to play it one way because Triano wasn't a defensive specialist at any means. And thus Triano didn't have necessary tools to implement the kind of defensive mindset. Now with Casey, there are so many more options Bargs has depending on the situation, the player, etc. I don't remember the last time Bargs took a charge prior to this year, but this year he has taken a few already and been positioned well for them. That is the key, the positioning and being able to quickly read the offense. He is not a dumb player by any means, lazy probably a little bit, but as his defensive efficiency continues to improve, that's when players have more fun playing defense and he sees his overall game jump to a new level. Kudos to Casey for doing a hell of a job with Bargs thus far, but even more kudos to Bargs for buying in.
