    Default Bargs' Defense Not Improved Over The Summer



    Sure I think they want to move him to PF so he can utilize more of his face up game - but alas many players don't improve after 4 years in the league - Bargs is likely one of them who has realized his potential.

    Ouch. Man, i hope BC was watchin that game and figure he really NEEDS to get a center. bargs clearly cannot handle bulky centers. I didnt count but it looked like Bargs gave him 3 and-1s. YIKES.

    I'm not sure why Italy was letting Andrea D him up one on one. It looked like an obvious mis-match.

    Hopefully Triano knows this as well

    Being at PF has NOTHING to do with Bargs ability to use his face up game. In fact, his face up game becomes more of a weapon when he's matched up against slower Centres.

    Because Bargnani is an NBA player who SHOULD be able to guard his man one on one in international play. Blaming the Italian coaches is really beside the point.

    If your man is constantly getting out muscled and put out of position, and basically dominated, you need to make an adjustment.

    From what I hear in scouting reports on Nikola Pekovic they should have known this going in.

    So no, it is not "beside the point". The Italian coaches either a) made a huge mistake in their defensive scheme or b) did not have the personel to do anything about it.

    So my point is, seeing this I hope Triano has an idea what he is dealing with when he is thinking about starting Andrea at the C position.
