And Bargs is not hardworking? You mean he sleepwalks his way to 21pts per game, 6 rebs and a blk per game? well if you think he doesnt work hard then the more we should keep him coz what more if he works hard?? 40pts per game? 20 rebs a game? yikes.
I didnt compare him to beasley because he's on a crappy team as well. See if you put beasley in OKC and Durant in 'Sota, will the team wins be different as well? You tell me.
I think its very easy for you to say that a player is a bad defensive player because you cant quantify defense. Thats why you think your arguments are always right because youre defending something that you cant really put a number on. Its easy to say, oh watch the game and youll see. Defense wins games, but its not the only thing that wins games. If you put perkins, barnes, battier, ronnie brewer and rondo in one team. all good defensive players, who the hell is going to score? put up 20+ pts? please dont go on a novelty act and say, oh, their offense will come from their defense, um, i dont think so.
i didnt say bargnani is a defensive genius, but he isnt just standing in the paint when somebody comes in. he challenges, tries to block, moves his feet and what not. he is just not built as a perkins-type player that you want him to be. but if youre putting that against him and looking past his scoring abilities then i think youre just being a hater. if you really want to compare defense vs offense, would you really think perkins will win a game of one on one with bargs? seriously?
its not that the spurs dont acquire poor defensive players, they play good team defense. one breaks, the other covers. the sad part with the raps is bargnani is their last line of defense and that what exposes him. put a real defensive big beside him and it will work.
and yes i agree, its easier to trade bargs because a slashing, jumpshooting 3 point shooting 7 footer is quite a rarity in the NBA.
i think you should take out your microscope off of bargs and think its a five man defense, five man offense. put him beside a defensive big and he'll win you games. no doubt.
