    Absolutely they are.

    This organization expects Bargnani to be a significant core player leading to a successful team.

    Fans expect Bargnani to shoot inefficiently, defend poorly and hardly rebound - so when he shoots an average to poor efficiency and gets 7 whole rebounds (in 40 minutes no less). Thats 'alright'.

    Team has too high of expectations placed on him - fans too low.
    Craiger, was that you who made that comment yesterday about expectations being unrealistic? Somebody said it, it is definitely not an original thought on my part.

    Gasol to Toronto can work and there might actually be some scenarios to make it happen without including Calderon:

    1) http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=7lpjrha

    Lakers: Bargnani, Kleiza
    Toronto: Gasol

    2) After December 15th, anyone can be traded who signed as free agent.

    Lakers: Bargnani, Fields
    Toronto: Gasol

    D'Antoni reunion with Fields, Fields g/f would certainly enjoy LA for her career.

    3) After December 15th, any combination of Raptor players that total a minimum of $14M in salary going out.

    4) Numerous 3 team deals out there with main pieces Bargnani to LA and Gasol to Toronto.


    Gasol would certainly be a better fit on this team. It would give the team a low post scorer that has quite possibly never been here, another shot blocker, and play maker off the block.

    Keeping Calderon retains his Bird Rights and playing with a great friend and countryman could be appealing. Keeping Calderon as a backup on a $5M contract would be great.

    Raps would have full MLE to pursue a wing such as Dorrell Wright.

    Gasol is an expiring $19.3M contract in 2013-14.

    I do think #1 or #2 makes Toronto a playoff team.

    ADD: from a LAL perspective they also save $4.25 for every dollar shed in salary. So losing $5M saves them nearly $21.5M ($16.5M in luxury tax and $5M salary prorated).
    Nah. Got to give Kupchak more credit than that.

    Its fairly obvious that with the Laker's collective age and susceptibility to injuries, they need a PG who can slow the pace and play half court set. They need a PG who will not dominate the ball, and yet be able to hold the ball long enough to set plays or find the open man. A PG who can sustain the pick and roll when Nash is on the bench (cough, Amir). A PG who can bring down the ball, find Kobe and let him do his thing, much like with Bargnani and Bosh.

    I just saw Calderon raise his hand up in the corner.

    I get typing "lol". What irks me (or makes me feel old) is when I'm out shopping with my wife and we're walking behind some 14 year old girls, and I hear them use "lol" as a verb, as in "so like he totally called me and I just lolled". What is happening to the English language?!?!?!

    Could we trade Bargnani and Kleiza for Gasol and Sacre (Sacre is a huge gamble but better if we get something in return with Gasol) ?

    Bargnani's play vs philly was disgusting.

    Its like he just gave up at the half. Absolutely no effort. Such Lazy ball handling.

    Default Giving thanks for the all-chucker squad

    Andrea Bargnani

    Bargnani may have surpassed Boozer in the unpopularity contest. He's shooting 37 percent, his free throws have dropped off, and he has somehow regressed on the boards and as a help defender. The cries to dump Bargnani get louder with each late-game Toronto collapse, the latest of which featured Jrue Holiday blowing by Bargnani on a switch and hitting Jason Richardson for a clutch 3.

    But the Raptors scored at a bottom-three rate without Bargnani last season, and a big man with legit 3-point range that can be deployed at high volumes is enormously valuable simply for floor spacing.

    Which brings us back to context and defense. Bargnani's a liability on the latter front, outside of some decent one-on-one post defense, and the context is changing in Toronto. Kyle Lowry is a borderline All-Star who can penetrate the defense, and DeMar DeRozan, flashing an improved post game, can at least tread water as a no. 1 option in Lowry's injury-related absence. Jonas Valanciunas will get better down low. Bargnani's contract is amnesty-eligible, and he has two years left after this one at a relatively affordable price.

    I encourage everyone who is fed up with Bargnani to send this tweet out:




    Bombs away on the Raptors and MLSE.

    You know what's going to happen, right? Bargnani will eventually drop a very efficient 35 points and 8 boards, combined with passable defense one night, and the puffed out chests of fans will come out in full force.

    The saga continues.....

    And the war drum from the other side will only get louder.

    As Eric Koreen said, "He is reliably unreliable."

    I hope he does put it all together for a stretch so he can be traded at maximum value and he becomes some other team's problem.

    The prophecy was true! Bargnani is finally back to pre-injury form! We're saved!

    ....Matt Devlin thinks so so it must be true.
