experts my butt. most fans as just as capable. it's no big deal. i still dont see facts to back it up, other than the so called eperts repeating the same thing. if it was just as competitive, we should be able to see more of europe's top players doing as well here.
stupid point, unless your comparing it to nba, which is obviously a higher level, but college not even close.
Man, he doesn't look atrocious like some of these goofy 7 footers from Africa look, but he did nothing that stood out to me. Ok jump shot, not incredibly slow but certainly not quick either, and skinny.
ok jump shot, he shot just under 45 from beyond the arc, and high 50's from the field, i'm thinkin that's better than ok
I think Bargnani will be fine, the player i had a problem with is Saer Sene. Here is a guy that barely played in the very weak Belgium League and did not do much. His only performance that got him drafted was the Hoop Summitt where he blocked a bunch of shots against high schoolers like Spencer Hawes. Saer Sene is the type of prospect that bombs in the NBA, very young, did not play on his euro team, looks great in practice (just learned layups!) and has very long arms. Thats a recipe for doom.
whether or not bargnani turns out to be a good pick at #1 probably won't be clear after only one season. he probably won't be rookie of the year, but down the line, in a couple years, he could become a great player. I like Aldridge's game a lot, but Bosh and Bargnani could provide one of the more dynamic duos up front in the NBA for years to come.
okay, no way is bargnani's potential greater than bosh's. Basically, the "experts" are pegging bargnani as the next Nowitzki. Bosh is essentially Kevin Garnett with more range on his jumper. Forget the success Dallas had last season for a second here and think about this: would u rather have Dirk or KG as your centrepiece. I'd say KG every day, and therefore, the statement of bargnani>bosh someday is rediculous.
It's spelled ridiculous. I respect your opinion, but who would win one on one. I say Dirk.
first of all, i didnt realize that this was grammar class. Secondly this thread is not even about a potential KG vs. Dirk one on one game. However, with that said, KG would destroy Dirk. Irk Nowitzki (he has no D) could not guard most ball boys, let alone Garnett. Velocirap, no disrespect, but you are way too protective of bargnani too.
