Bargnani doesn't get enough credit for the shots he does block or effect in the game. I remember watching more than a few games last year where he'd tip or deflect 4-5 shots and would get no credit. So yeah, saying he could avg. 1 to 2 blocks a game isn't a stretch. However, they wouldn't be "swats" or "pins" as many people today only think those are blocks.

As for his rebounding, it can improve. He's still pretty young and playing against larger opponents. Rebounding is all about positioning and I'm sure he's still acclimatizing himself to the centre position and the nuances there.

Im more interested in what BC has to say about other issues than I am about Bargnani signing.

Hopefully our pathetic media asks some tough questions

The smart way to block is not to swat it into the stands. That just gives the team another, sometimes even better, way to score. The smart way is to tap it to a teammate, which is something that I hope Bargs knows and will do instead of just swatting it as far as possible. I think he can block 2 a game. That would put him in elite company though, since only about 5-10 players do that in a given year.
