BC Brought him in to tell us how wonderful Bargs would be and to find all the over seas gems.
Nice idea - failed experiment lets review:
Jorge Garbajosa - big injury rushed return to play for Spanish national team Raptors suffered. There was bickering between Raps and Spanish national team about insurance (FAIL)
Anthony Parker - was Euro standout best FA signing but Gherardini is not the only one who pegged him as an NBA assett.
Bargs - is a bench player and a mismatch specialist who is a defensive liability wasted pick.(FAIL)
Kleiza - already Jason Kapono. Nice scoring touch horrific perimeter defender in hands-free NBA. BC talked his agent into getting him to sit the season out under the guise of surgery. They dont want him back. (FAIL)
Turk - May have been more BC's fault than Gherardini - just another example of how virtually all European players lack grit lateral movement and Defensive ability.
Rasho Nesterović - soft interior defender rebounder (FAIL)
Maceo Baston 15 games - 103 minutes in 07/08 (FAIL)
Marco Belinelli - wanted him out as soon as they realized how uncoachable he was (FAIL)
bottom line we have seen recently how good the raptors can be with out any Europeans in the line up. Even as young as they are impressive road games in Dallas / CHI / OKC and @ home vs ORL.
BC is to blame for much of this but get him a new consigliere and there will be better moves like JACK for Bayless
We dont want another season of watching Calderon getting torched at the point of attack and Bargs letting guys half his size get a free pass to the rim for easy makes and rebounds. And with JJohnson Weems DeRozen and Barbosa and Wright I don't want to see led footed kleiza back either... which renders Gherardini moot.
