    Default Chris Sheridan Hates Andrea Bargnani

    Not sure how many of you caught this, but in Chris Sheridan's latest NBA Power Rankings he managed to mention Andrea Bargnani (and how idiotic NYC was to trade for him) 4 times! Not only does Il Mago come up in the Knicks and Raptors blurbs, he somehow manages to shoehorn references into the sections for Denver & Washington as well. The guy has a serious hate-on for Bargs.

    He also manages to rank T.O. in 27th, so even with Masai's fleecing of the Knicks he's still got a rather pessimistic take on our current lineup.

    There's some other questionable judgement in there (I simply can't place the Knicks ahead of GSW, Chicago, and Houston), but I thought RR folk would be interested along the lines of "what the rest of the world thinks about our team"...

    horrible rankings, even if you completely ignore Toronto's position.

    Odd... Losing Jrue Holiday makes Philly the worst team in History apparently.

    Yeah, this is terrible analysis in many ways.

    - puts his money on the Pacers, but then says the Nets can beat them
    - rather having Tony Allen than Iggy because Tony won't take a bad shot. that's because he doesn't have an actual shot!
    - says Jeremy Lin isn't a great starter but Greg Smith is
    - thinks Jrue Holiday is enough to vault the Pelicans up six spots from last year
    - has the Kings at 17, even after they lost their 2nd-best player in Tyreke Evans. Vasquez can't make up for that

    I've never liked Sheridan. He likes to think that he can be the first to know things and that he has "sources" but they never come true. But that's unrelated. Anyone who says Greg Popovich isn't a genius, loses all credibility in my book.(not that he had any to begin with.

    Yeah again Jrue is really overrated. Statistically he's not that much better than Brandon Jennings.

    That being said though Philly is pretty freaking bad lol. If MCW shoots as poorly as he did in the summer league they'll have 0 players who they can rely on to score consistently.

    I'd argue that they're actually worse than the 09-10 Nets (12 wins), they might not lose as much as them though because of the number of teams that are tanking. At least that team had Brook Lopez and D-Harris who could both go for 20 on any given night. Philly has no one like that unless ET finally lives up to his draft selection, but I doubt he will.

    Chris Sheridan is not good at analyzing the game of basketball.

    Well, if Sheridan wasn't a contrarian, no one would link to his blog and he would go bankrupt.

    Spot on. I think he started up that site during the lockout, after being dumped by ESPN. At that time, I swear 98% of what he wrote made little sense and was all about getting clicks. Now maybe it's down to only half being all about clicks, but he knows, like many NBA writers on-line, that one sure way of getting hits is to say something about the Raptors, the more controversial the better.

    I feel like Chris Sheridan is a name we all shouldn't know of. But thanks for sharing.

    Why are there Bargnani-based threads slipping out solo?
