bargs was thrown in the fire so to speak when bosh went down. i think it would be unfair to judge his "take over the game" mentality in those couple of games.
Bargnani has been in the league 4 years, and been the second option for at least a year and a half. Just how much coddling does this guy need. There are players that come straight out of one year of college and perform better when asked to become the first option. LaMarcus Aldridge, who was drafted the same year, increased his scoring when Brandon Roy went out. Same with Pau Gasol and most other second options, when the first option went out with injury. All except for Bargnani. Is Bargnani such a special case that he shouldn't be expected to carry the extra load that all the other second options do when their best player goes out?
