I am more than fine with a strong C who plays defense and rebounds and his scoring is fine at 8-12pts a game. I think I said somewhere else I like the scoring wings and controlling moderate scoring floor general PG with paint clogging punch you in the mouth defense at the 4 and 5 (a la ED and Perkins/Howard style) that can play at put backs with their rebounding (when the wings do jump shots) and play efficiently at the basket for their points.
Sorry dude, Biedrins for Bargs makes now sense. Bargs is in a much higher category, and Biedrins IS NOT a good defender. You are off the mark there. That would be the steal of the century for the OTHER TEAM if we did this trade.
I'm not saying it's easy to find one and in fact said I'd take a center that can just defend and rebound (and who's not a liability on offense), but the fact is that the Raptors are lacking a lot of pieces.
As for the topic of this thread I do not look to keep Bargnani as one of our bigs, who many argue is a stellar player because he is a "great scorer" for the team, and "spreads the floor" to make up for his lack of rebounds and defense. Ummm...
21st in FG% for FC (excluding true centers which would drop him another 15 spots)
last in 3ptFG% (and not close. by the way Charlie V is shooting a better clip than Bargnani, and please don't use that as an argument he should come back!)
2nd in shots taken per game behind Amare (at 7pts less FG% than Amare though) He takes touches away from others.
25th in rebounds (drop another 11 spots to 36th if you include true centers)
18th in blocks (drop another 18 if you include the Cs, and this doesn't even include PF's including Amir Johnson - who has dbl the blks)
Forget the rest, and I am sorry I won't comment on Bargs the rest of this thread since there is a dedicated thread for that elsewhere.
Sell sell sell!
