Mid range game and his ability to put the ball on the floor is special for a true 7 footer.
The 3/4 pick and role is rare- but so are Carmelo and bargnani's skill sets. Even his defense looked promising. Size and mobility can't be taught
I'll definitely give you that Bargnani is far more skilled than Novak and that has been a terrible misconception over the last few months. My worries about Bargnani have nothing to do with his offensive skillset. He can hoop. I worry #1 about his health! #2 about his defense.
