I have to think that if Jawai shows even the slightest of the tenacious, athletic banger the team is still sorely missing, he'll be splitting minutes with Bargs ahead of Hump soon enough.

Unless Bargnani shows drastic improvement pretty early on, he won't be getting those well-we-don't-really-have-a-choice minutes that he got last year. As much as it'll hurt to bench his #1 pick, Colangelo isn't stupid.
