By the way blaze89 that avatar is killer.
Boy, Bargnani is a bench player at best. No way he should start on this team.
Good call buddahfan ... They should send Bargs to D-League, is not possible for a player to have 41 Points/7 Rebounds/6 Assists/2 Steals vs Knicks while playing in New York.
In all fairness, in another thread, Buddha did predict that Bargs would have a career night with 45 points. I tell you, he has crystal balls.
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
So... yeah. Discuss?
Quite a few very big plays by Bargnani in the game. So when does his hot streak end? I give it 2 weeks
He played very well except for how he guarded Amare.
Yeah, most players would but if we're going to give the good we should also give the bad and there were some plays while he was guarding Amare that looked really bad. I don't think he could have played much better on offense though.
Well he could have, if Triano called a play in those last 2.7 seconds maybe Bargnani could have had a better look, it was areally bad call by Triano.
From a personal perspective it was a great night. When I was a kid I could only dream of an italian guy playing in the nba, as a teenager I got esposito and rusconi and they weren't exactly what I wished for, later the bargs/gallo/beli era begun and they gave me 50/50 joy/sorrow...now a 40+ points performance? I'm an happy kid. As an adult and moderately educated basketball fan I have other things to say (about d for example), but I really don't care now, child dreams sorta became reality

I think as fans should be pleased, not with the amount, but how he was scoring. This is where the comparison to 'Dirk' comes from. His ability to score from all areas on the floor. His spot up shooting was amazing to watch. I 've never seen him more fluid and in rhythm than last night. If you watched that performance and was not pleased or acknowledged his skill then I am sorry your not a fan. He shot almost 70% yesterday on a combination of pull ups, threes, drive and pop and attacking the basket.
I am hoping that the departure of Bosh will allow Bargs to continue to grow into his own. We don't need him to get 10 boards a game. That point is moot if he can consistently bring a 20+ 7+ 7+ games and he can have a bruiser doing the work a la Evans.
And there seems to be a lot more going on with him. He is more emotional, fist pumping, he is more engaged, demanding the ball and is showing a great confidence level. I think a lot of people are being very short sided with his deficiencies right now because he can still have the opportunity to improve. Just like Dwight Howard how he had ZERO offensive game and now has developed it.
His last three was almost spiritual how he hit that. Nice to see with the clock winding, pressure is on and he pops a three. wow.

23 ppg and 7.6 are Dirk standard!
Let's go Raptors!
