Andrea does it all on one side. If he played good defense and had average rebounding ability he would deserve an A.
I don't know. His defense was horrible. He only plays well in one aspect of the game.
No. I believe defense is equally important as offense. I also believe Calderon is too high.
How bout we do it this way.
Amir: 24 minutes per game.
Andrea: 35 minutes per game.
Amir Offense Rating:
Plays within the System, doesn't take "Reggie" shots, shoots a high percentage, cleans up the Offensive Glass.
Bargs Offense Rating:
Shoots ALOT of shots. Shoots with SOME consistency, and not generally at a very high percentage clip. Scores ALOT of points in a variety of ways.
Amir Defense Rating:
Hustles, Actually Plays Defense, Guards the Best Big man on the Floor, Rebounds, blocks shots, Fills the Lane, Takes Charges, DOES HIS JOB.
Bargs Defense Rating:
Amir Average: (B-) + (B+)= B
Bargs Average: (B+) + (D-) = C
This is how I see it anyway.

I really don't understand what you have against Amir. The majority of fans and writers said he was the Raptors MVP at the All-Star break, and the only reason they wouldn't say so now is because of DeRozan's play of late and because of Amir's injury. He's easily the team's most productive player, and helps the team on both ends of the court. And to say the guy is overpaid is ridiculous. Just looking at his PER, he's well above average, yet he's making less than the average salary.
No one denies that Bargnani is a very good offensive player, but even you have to admit he's only useful half the time he's on the court. So if he plays 36 minutes, for approximately 18 minutes he not only doesn't help the team, but hurts it. I don't know how you can realistically give him anything more than a C.
Amir may only play 26 minutes a game, but he's useful and productive for all those 26 mpg. That's why he gets a higher grade than Bargnani.
