Btw, how exactly did this become a Bargnani thread? I just said that Amir's defense didn't impress me at all, and people started to bring up Bargs... Newsflash: the fact that Bargnani's defense (at least help defense) was atrocious this season doesn't mean that Amir's is good -.-
Lopez has been a beast in his career up to this season. He's not a beast this season. Lewis is not a real PF. He's played SF most of his career. Diaw also is a SF/PF who's playing PF because he got so fat. Jeff Green is also a SF playing out of place as a PF because of Durant.
Aldridge is playing like a stud this year. That's who we should've drafted instead of Bargs. He's averaging pretty much the same ppg plus 3 more rebounds per game.
Everyone else you mentioned have higher DRB% than Bargs as well.
Why do you ignore the stats I showed you about Amir? That's he's one of the better defenders on this team. Amir's going up against 2 guys in the post on defense usually because Bargs is content to just watch and not help. If he helped, Amir's numbers would probably be even better.
