    He averages close to 22 shots per game. If you make less than 50 % of them, you can still averge 20 ppg.

    Your first comment and your second comment have no correlation to each other. What does BOS having or having not played HS ball have to do with it?
    Hey sweet peach, it has to do with everything. Low basketball accumen and IQ which is what you and that other dude exhibit. Typical armchair critic, never played a serious game in ur life. You think it's easy to score the ball in the NBA? It's not 2K buddy. Playing on injuries is not fun, especially when the rest of your team can't pickup the scoring load.

    Fully agree.
    Way too critical of Amir's game, Multi.
    He's our BEST inside presense from both sides of the floor. Though their games are different, I'm not sure its fair to sell Amir quite as short as you have.
    Sorry buddy, disagree with both you guys. Amir is a bench player, and always will be. He is foul prone (including on 3s), turnover prone, unreliable in crunch time, a poor shot blocker, a poor rebounder. Ed Davis is better than him and will eventually supplant him as he should. Amir is a dud.

    Love how you guys think "scoring is easy"...so funny, i would love to play one on one against you guys, see how "easy" it is.

    I've never been on this side of the argument. I have never discounted what Bargnani brings to the table, and have ALWAYS been of the opinion that he is VERY unique and is absolutely an assett within the league. I was simply stating you are being too critical of Amirs game.

    And I played Varsity ball throughout HS and College, so don't act like you're the only one who balls, Multi.

    You realize that the more often you post your ridiculous assessments of Amir, the dumber you sound right? At least look up some stats before you post, it'd go a long way. I know the internet is hard, but try to keep up.

    1. Amir is foul prone, I'll give you that. But so are Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudemire, Emeka Okafor, Brook Lopez, Serge Ibaka, etc. What you don't seem to be able to understand is that big men SHOULD use their fouls. It's called protecting the freaking rim, putting players that come into the paint on their asses. Let me ask you this: when was the last time you can remember that Bargs put a hard foul on someone that was driving through the lane? Sure Amir picks up dumb fouls, but he also intimidates in the lane, something that Bargs is pathetic at.

    2. Turnover prone? Bargs 2.5 per game, Amir 1.1 Good call.

    3. Unreliable in crunch time? Compare his clutch stats to Bargs' at 82games. Amir has higher shooting percentages, much better efficiency, more free throws, better at drawing free throws, higher net points, etc. The only thing Bargs beats him in is total points per 48 minutes (by less than 5 pts), but he needed more than double Amir's field goal attempts to do it. Another great call.

    4. Poor shot blocker? He gets 1.5 per 36 mins, Bargs gets 1.1. So if Amir is poor, then Bargs is what? Pathetic?

    5. Poor rebounder? Amir kills Bargs, 9.1 to 5.6 per 36 minutes. Again, if Amir is poor, then Bargs is what? Hopeless?

    edit: I should have just posted the facepalm haha. Well played WhatWhat.

    Typical noob posters. Some dude with no avatar and another dude with a Bayless avatar acting like they know something.

    It's called Mathletics. Wayne Winston. Stats 101. Amir is not as good as Bargs, apples and oranges sweet pea.

    Amir KILLS Bargs in adjusted plus/minus, which is exactly the stat Winston covets.

    Honestly dude, just give it up. This is getting sad.

    Seriously, just give it up.
