Default Andrea Bargnani

Andrea Bargnani, aka "Il Mago" has officially turned the corner !!!

Bargnani is playing amazing right now and he is very confident, and his Defense is pretty good and i think playing that 5 spot is his best position by far. I noticed he been playing great defense against all the opposing centers and there really hasn't been a game were he couldn't defend them in the last couple of games ....

He is looking for his shot now, and even driving the ball to the bucket and finishing with power or hard layups .......

Bosh even looks happy now when playing with him ......

Something must happened to him because his swag is off the chain !

It's only a 3-game blip.

Wait, a 4- game blip.

No, a 5- game blip.

OK, a 6-game blip.

All right, 7...

Pretty soon even his critics will have to acknowledge that it is starting to look like Bargnani has truly arrived as a formidable NBA centre. Maybe.

Yeah our bench has alot of energy players. Roko is a stud, Humpries is Humpries, Joey haas gotten better due to confidence, but Kapono is just ****.

Wrong,

Kapono simply missed a shot he didn't cost us the game, if anything it was the Coaching because down the stretch they weren't getting the ball to chris bosh in the post at all ...... and just settling with jump shots

anyway bulls would do a JKAP jor Niocioni deal? I think they might just to get rid of his lengthy contract. Kapono is a little less and ends earlier so this might be possible. They both put up similar numbers if you match minutes. Nocioni is a much better all around player than JK and plays decent D. Only knock on him is his lengthy contract and his age(29)vs(27)Kapono. Nocioni is on a declining contract where they take 5% back each year so its not as bad as it looks. He makes $8M this year and down to $6.5M in 2011.

he also missed 3 clutch trips in the last 3 minutes of play...this happens I know but I think everyone wants JKAP out of here for some more versatility. He is too one dimensional

they tried SO HARD giving the ball to Chris, but Chris was badly owned by KG! Bosh had to run outside the 3 point line to get da ball..

should have run more picks to get him open, or get a switch off

It was coaching but it wasn't only avoiding CB. THEY CONTINUE TO IGNORE THE SHEER AWESOMENESS AND CLUTCH PLAY OF ROCKIN ROKO. START THAT CROATIAN MOFO!!
