Default Bargnani a key defensive player for Italy

From the Dough Smith article:

Quote:
Bargnani has become the focal point of the Italian offence and one of its key defensive players as he’s returned the national team to a global event.

Is Eurobasket defense that different than the NBA? Or maybe the other guys on the team can't play D?

Bargnani is a good one-on-one defender.
Help defense is easier with FIBA rules because there isn't 3 seconds defensive violation.

Cool, makes sense. Agreed that his 1on1 D is better than most people believe.

That kinda sums it up. In the NBA, he's a passable on the ball one on one defender but atrocious on help defense and defensive rebounding.

Yes he can be good one on one defender when he tries and moves his feet. However he rarely does this. What he does more though is disappear on defense totally.

His one on one D tbest against slow, traditional, back to the basket C/PF's from what i've seen. I specifically remember him holding his own against Yao Ming as an example. Unfortunately, those players are few and far between in todays league and therefore to guard that position which is becoming explosive and perimeter oriented, you need guys with lateral quickness and good defensive awareness.
