Will Bargnani Replace JO in Starting Lineup?
 
Simple question...

Do you expect Bargnani to replace Jermaine O'Neil in the starting lineup by the end of the year?

Shifty.py 11-09-2008 07:15 PM

Why? It works out great so far.
Just cross your fingers that JO or Bosh doesn't get injured

alseaf 11-09-2008 07:17 PM

I think the right answer here is FUCK NO. Bosh is tearing it up mainly cuz he has attention taken away from him due to the presence of JO inside. If he was to play along Bargs for extended time, the defense will close in on Bosh more since Bargs hangs around the 3 line more often than not

maltmonger 11-09-2008 07:24 PM

No.

Dr. J. Naismith 11-09-2008 07:26 PM

Only way Bargs will replace JO in the line-up is if Jermaine is out with an injury.

I'd love to get my hopes up regarding Bargnani, but I'll bet tomorrow night he'll score anywhere between 0-4 points. :(

As long as he keep playing defense like he has I'll be a happy camper. :D

No, tommarow he is gonna be key in a Raptor upset.

22, 7reb and 5ast and 2 blocks.

Rememberance Day is a holiday in NB? It's only a holiday for government workers here in Ontario. :(

I think Bargnani at his best and in his best season will average 19ppg, 7rpg, 3apg, 2 bpg. However, this will most likely happen on a different team that is rebuilding.

don't undervalue what JO brings on defense. And don't analyze his offense based on the first 6 games. JO's getting good shots, but he can't finish. In my opinion it's a matter of time until he gets it going. Bargnani's role is perfect right now, we need his offense from the bench a lot more than with the first unit.

That being said, if Andreea could play like today, I think he could be considered starter-level material in this league already. Unfortunately with Andreea, consistency is the key ... :)

t-bag 11-09-2008 09:03 PM

I don't think we'll see Bargs get the starting spot while JO is here, but I could see him averaging close to the same amount of minutes coming off the bench (if he continues to improve).

Ball Don't Lie 11-09-2008 10:12 PM

This is by far the biggest overreaction in the history of any Raptor board, and thats REALLY saying something. Raptors fans overreact like no other.

Wait until JO starts hitting that turnaround, then the JO=ALLSTAR@@@!!!! threads will be popping up like no tomorrow.

Ya lol gotta agree, JO's gonna take over soon but back to the question...i like bargs coming off the bench, he's more efficient, and other then him and kapono, who else is scoring off the bench?...let's hope bargs plays more consistent thought...don't wanna see any more "donuts" (zero points)...remember last year when we faced boston and all the raps had a big game including bargs? 5 raps had over 20+ and we won by 2 in boston...brings back memories o_O...let's hope tomorrow's game is a great one too :D

insight_tor 11-09-2008 11:02 PM

At this moment, no way Andrea should start over JO. We need someone to came of bench and do some good thinks. Also, I like JO getting a lot of attention so CB4 can do his magic. What we need now is our wings to start playing more consistent and hit the outside shots.

Gurk 11-09-2008 11:34 PM

No way does Bargs start for JO. Atleast not until JO gets injured or isn't providing with defence or offence(which isn't likely)

jumplvlan23 11-10-2008 02:33 AM

lol. hey maybe will solomon will take over jose's spot too.

EggsToTheBBQ 11-10-2008 04:54 AM

Don't see it happening.

I really like Bargnani's new role off the bench.

henrymakepeace 11-10-2008 08:10 AM

Considering the way Bargnani plays, he looks like aiming to replace Parker or Moon, not JO. Somebody should tell him that he is 7.0" tall. He can only become the next Okur by the style he is playing.

Superjudge 11-10-2008 10:12 AM

I dunno who will start, not start, etc.

I have noticed this however, when Bargnani gets the ball in the blocks this year, he has been literally unstopable. He's either getting the basket, or getting fouled. I'm not sure if you guys are seeing it that way, however, if and when thy start actually using him more in that way, he's going to make it hard to keep him off the floor. He leads the team is Blocks too, in less minutes that the other bigs.

If he continues to put up numbers, he's also going to start getting calls. He still gets ZERO respect. His charges are not all good calls, last night was a good example.

What it all means?

Well, once JO gets his range found, and Bargnani continues to show up strong, it wont matter who starts, Toronto will ALWAYS have a chance to put two solid bigs on the floor.

Now lets see about getting those 2-3 guards going. i.e Kill Kapono, he's useless.
