    I think one of the downside of Bargnani's so-called new found aggression is more fouls. I can see him trying to overcompensate and being too eager to chase the offensive player which could result in more fouls.
    Awesome... more PT for ED and Amir. lol

    Couple things here:

    1) how do you "make something click" in a guy? How many different approaches were taken in hopes of getting things to 'click' for him? If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.... well isn't the idea of trying to find a way to get Bargnani rebound and defend (yet again) insane?
    Have you ever coached a kid and watched him or a team finally get something after months? Or have you ever looked at one of those crazy 2 faces in a picture for a long time without seeing anything then someone says, "Look there!" and it all comes together? How do you make something click and in Bargnani no less? I don't know. I don't know the guy. But I know what didn't work - coddling from the front office (bye bye Gheridini!), touchy feely coaching (bye bye JT!), telling him, "You're big, go get the ball!". To answer your question: you missed the point, they are doing things differently - no coddling, tough love, setting specific and achievable goals versus abstract concepts.

    2) the entire article was about Andrea. People (Yertu) responded to it regarding Andrea. How was Yertu responding to the things in the article that he didn't agree with 'hating'? How could Yertu have responded to the article without you considering it 'hating'? Would he just not have had to not respond or respond positively or by 'hoping' everything is will turn out? People clearly don't expect Andrea to amount to much of a rebounder... and Yertu's statement about people having 'lowered the bar 'in regards to Andrea's expectations is something I specifically remember you mentioning aswell.
    New statements and concepts from those directly involved with the organizations being responded with old arguments. The bar certainly has been lowered. The idea of 8 rebounds a game (plus a few others that bounce to him) certainly exceeds that bar in my opinion. That is certainly better than a C who just signed a 5 year, $64M contract who averaged 7.6 per game.


    3) I'd have alot more faith in the article if it came from ANYONE other than Doug Smith. While I think D.Smith is intelligent, knowledgeable and has resources above and beyond most of the media, he tows the company line like no other. Has BC ever done anything, of significance, that he has been critical of? BC could trade for Hedo again and Doug Smith would talk about how it should work out well for the team or atleast how BC has a bigger 'plan' and everyone should just be patient.
    I agree on Doug Smith. However, I do not think he would risk his journalist integrity to make up conversations. As for the comments, now you're just hating on poor ol' Dougie.

    Picks would be good. Scola or Odom would have been pointless.
    Odom would have provided good cap relief next year and subsequent years as he had a non-guaranteed contract with a $2M buyout.
