Writing off Bargnani right now is foolish. Or saying that he's not a good player is downright silly.
Post the evidence that says the Bulls were going to take Bargs at #2 ?
If not its BS hearsay like everything else....When you had most of the GMs saying he was virtually unknown thats an unlikely story....I do rememmber it was reported they were high on Aldridge.....
and Bargnani doesnt have the tools to be an all star in any conference until he rebounds..no coach is going to pick a big man in that game with poorous rebounding numbers when you have guys that will have 12/10..15/10 stat lines....Only shot he will have ever have is if he averages 30 PPG or is top 5 in the league at scoring in Feb and thats a pipedream....
'95 Michael Finaly
'96 Steve Nash
'97 Stephen Jackson
'99 Shawn Marion
'02 Amare Stoudemire
'03 traded for the draft rights to Barbosa
'04 Luol Deng (then traded as Sarver traded many first round picks due to not wanting to pay guaranteed contracts)
Then there are the many trades he has made. He usually comes out better.
Regardless of drafting or trading, you can't win them all. However if you look at his history I would certainly say he makes many more good decisions than poor. Here is his history:
I agree with you I am falling for the names alittle and the contracts aren't the greatest,
but right now we're paying 18 million per season at the point and getting smoked.
I feel Arenas more than Baron still have game. Baron did thrive in golden states uptempo offence and both players would be motivated by the change.
two years left on baron contract is better then four on calderon.
haha nice.. thanks i did invest in silver
come on baron is only 31.
I can see BC swinging for the fences as usual. The only thing is that why would a rival GM help another GM. I mean they scored with Wall but if Gil stays where he is, the Wizards will be literally handcuffed for years. I mean, they can't even make minor moves. The TPE is not big enough for his salary. He's a good player but he is a nutjob. He can still play but if things are left the way they are, we don't need to help Washington. We just need to mind our business. Maybe Charlotte or the Knicks swing something for Gil, I just don't see the Raps doing it, even if the price (whatever that means) is right.
A normal "new" Gil and DeMar could be an interesting backcourt tandem. We're all allowed to dream right? Also, I can see Gil coming if they're trying to develop Barg's inside game. But he's a perimeter player and we don't need another perimeter guy to stretch the floor.

And I think he stopped caring about basketball about 4 years ago.
Here is on our draft grade where we got an A-
Hollinger showing how good Bargnani actually was
Chad Ford also thinks Bargnani is the "real deal"
This is SI's mock draft
Another Mock Draft
NBAdraft.net also thinks Bargnani was going 1st
The only draft site which didn't project Bargnani going first was Scout.com who projected him 5th
Unless a player isn't considered to be "able" to be first overall pick, they don't get all this media exposure. You can't find evidence that any team is going to take a certain player unless it's a 100% like Griffin, Wall, LeBron, Yao etc..

The "rumble of curiosity" came from the Wizards asking if we'd do them a favour and kindly take Arenas from them for free.
I'll take him.
he's good, he's got real talent.
he's not an efficient scorer, but he'll give another scoring threat. plus he's a good passer and decente defender. also, he's got motivation.
let's face it: players worth that salary are not coming to toronto.
talent is everything, and we have too little. Derozan won't blossom in an all-star.
