In an interview released at Il Corriere dello Sport, Andrea Bargnani talked about the season of Toronto, the future of the franchise with or without Chris Bosh and his presence in the summer with Italian NT.
"We are disappointed and I never thought that after 82 games the season would have been decided in the last game. We had too many ups and downs, especially after the All-Star break" said 'Il Mago' who spoke also about the situation of his ankle.
"There is a bone spur which makes me problems. We are considering the possibility of surgery but I hope to avoid it" added Bargnani.
The Italian big man talked on the future of Raptors who risk to lose Chris Bosh.
"If Chris will leave I am ready to be the franchise player: I was never scared by responsibilities".
Former Benetton Treviso player finished speaking about the Italian NT:
"I really want to play for Italy but after the season with Raptors and the camps, I can't play two months in the summer with Italy. My body doesn't hold the effort. We must find a solution good for Italy, Raptors and me" said Bargnani.
