Default Same Old Bargnani

Looks like Bargnani is having the same effect on the Knicks.

"Golliver: The Clippers’ beautiful inverse (No. 2 in offensive efficiency, No. 29 in defensive efficiency) is a very strong candidate on the team level, but nothing tops the sheer comedy of Bargnani’s opening week. The summer months dragged on, and it seems like 100,000 or more words were written about how terrible and desperate the Knicks were for agreeing to take Bargnani after his pathetic 2012-13 season with the Raptors. What happens next? Bargnani’s early play blows away all of those predictions — but in the wrong direction! He was even more horrid than even the most ardent detractors feared.

His opening week on/off numbers really should be framed and sent to Springfield: According to NBA.com, the Knicks’ offensive efficiency falls from 99.3 when he’s off the court to 93.4 when he’s on the court and their defensive rating drops from 84.5 when he sits to a preposterous 116.2 when he plays. In simpler terms, Bargnani takes New York from an average offense to a bottom-five offense, while also dropping the Knicks from league-best to league-worst (by a freaking mile) levels on defense. You look at those numbers and wonder whether coach Mike Woodson would have been better served by simply playing 4-on-5 when it was Bargnani’s turn in the rotation."

Makes you wonder if he's on his final NBA contract. He'll be able to get more money in Europe.

and it's a terrible system for him as well..
put Bargnanni in a Popavinch system and he would play better. The Knicks are no different then how the Atlanta Hawks usedto be.. an offence with no structure.. just a bunch of chuckers

but they always seem to take are leftovers..

Even though I find it amusing to see how much he sucks in New York (I hate Knicks!) He is not as bad some make him out to be. Bargs is a bench player at this point, and if used right I think he could be good 6-7th player

He would not play worse. That is for sure. Because he would not play. I don't know how anyone could have ever seen Andrea play and think he could be used in a system that insists on taking very good shots and not allowing opposing offenses to take their best shots.

its seems like he just wants to go back to Europe, that he has had enough, it is even worse as a knick then a raptor, and that's saying something

The Knicks had their first players-only meeting after the loss to Charlotte.

I imagine they had a lot to tell him. But he probably just took it as an annual ritual.

He had a monster night. 25 points. 8 rebounds. 5 blocks.

If only he could guard Biyombo every night with little need to help anywhere else.

Why, so he could make us look bad for trading his ass?
No thanks!
