And the only way Bargnani will make or break the Raptors is in terms of what the Raptors trade him for. He clearly has no future in Toronto. He will never be an effective C and will never displace Bosh at PF. Even if he turns into a solid player, why keep him and not address the holes on the wings?
Although I think your being a little hard on him comparing to Kwame. I do agree that he'd be better served as trade bait for a top 15 SG or SF.
Myself, Im willing to give Bargs til Christmas, If he's not vastly improved by then, Id trade him for sure.
Why? cause the time is now for the Raps.
