    Default Bargnani misquoted

    Some quotes from Bargs today:

    Bargnani today: "Nobody is satisfied. Not me, not DeMar, not coach, that was my sentence pretty good answer to a pretty stupid question."

    "Iím not going to go over every single crap that was in there, I just wanted to clarify for all you media guys that specific sentence."

    "Going to have people look over it+take care of the other stuff, because I donít think some people can afford to change my words like that."

    Yup. Seems like he's pretty emotional in his interviews today.

    He said we are playin' like the worst NBA team..."nothing to say I'm doing bad like the rest of the team if you loose in the way we are doing can't be all my fault , I can't control the trades talkin' it's up to the manager ect"...all the rest about the management ect I don't know where they taking it from , he never said anything about it in the audio ...

    In the end of the day sucks to support the Raptors you can blame BC , Bargnani Casey ect , in the end BC is the one who drafted Val, Davis and Ross that everybody loves he screwed up maybe with Fields but he tried to get Nash , he tried to get Chandler but MJ blocked the freakin' trade giving the title to Dallas ...you can all blame everyone or nobody !

    Unfortunately trying and succeeding are two different things.

    Wish he had as much anger about losing and poor play.....he seems to care more about what Italian media says than how he performs on the court...he has to go....no heart no mental toughness.

    @WolstatSun I'm the Italian journalist who interviewed Bargnani. I didn't misquoted him. The whole interview is recorded...
    So there you have it from the other side.

    Three sides to every story: yours, mine, and the truth.

    Anyone remember the Turkish Hedo interview at the end of May, 2010?

    http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/2010/0...ck-to-toronto/

    The 'clarification' in late June? (I can't find anything other than Bleacher Report - ugh, sorry for weak source)

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/4...not-the-system

    And, of course, the trade 2 weeks later in July?

    i think Bargs got a call from BC asking What The Fuck!! then was told to say he was misquoted & smooth over the PR

    i believe he did say it & i dont think he should even be with the team at this point...maybe sent him back to Italy till hes traded!!

    I don't get all the fuss. The man said the right thing. We were the worst team. I don't see why everyone is so up in arms about it.

    You're kidding right? Cause you don't individually put your team under dirt, while not holding yourself completely accountable. He may have had words about him being disappointed in himself individually, but we all know how 'big' of a part he is to this team, and that his play has been showing out poorly. He's a reason we are arguably the worst team in the league. Record doesn't say it.

    You're high on some real good shit. We should easily be 10th in the east if it weren't for Bargnani and his team wrecking defense and me first offense

    I'm not on any shit. The Raptors are a bad team with or without Bargnani. Period. I see them finishing bottom 5 even with bargnani. They don't have talent, simple as that.

    Also, nowhere in his interview did I see him shying away from the blame. He did kinda say that he's the best player on the team though, which I don't agree with. I also think he realizes how bad he has been. But to say the team has been bad solely because of Bargnani is just wrong. Their problems run deeper than that.

    You're wrong. Bargnani in uniform=Raptors lose, simple equation. When bargnani is playing our defense is crap, he doesn't rotate and when he hedges he jogs back slow as a tortoise. Then on offense, when the ball swings to him and he doesn't have a clean look, instead of passing it he chucks up long 2's and bricks 3's. His shot selection is worse than Terrance Ross's, and he's a rookie. Have you watched the last 2 games? they've been playing great team ball, sharing it on offense and communicating on D. Bargnani needs to go, plain and simple

    AH AH AH ! after this I think you need to change your pusher...

    Bargnani this Bargnani that...in the end he is the best one on one defender on the team , and the me first offense it's a myth too ...how many second half we had with Bargnani not having opportunity to shoot this year???? he maybe had 2-3 bad shooting matches and others where they did not use him well at all!

    So he said "WE" are playin' like the worst team in the NBA and it could not be just his fault if they are doing bad this year...what's untrue about that????

    you are all in denial or just blinded by hate ...because you are all losers supporting a losing team, when everybody ,players and management admit that before they might manage to turn things around!

    If you actually watched the games and didn't have your eyes fixated on pasta boy you would know that he was brick laying no matter the qtr and his one on one D is whats expected but since his team d is so bad it only looks great to a fanboy like you ...."not having an opportunity to shoot" that was good had me in tears honestly if he could get the ball on the bench he would shoot it !!!

    " if he could get the ball on the bench he would shoot it !!! "

    It's actually his job ...you know? everyone on this team had bad nights shooting the balls , De Rozan,Calderon,Lowry ect
    it's up to the manager aswell to put them in condition to perform, why keeping Barg on the 3 points line when is got a off night?
    they always tried to put him closer to the basket last year was good in the middle range area now instead they move him back on 3 points line .

    I think you are the one having your eyes fixated on Bargnani but you see just what you don't like and you don't even care the reasons if there are any , and you forget to see how poor can be sometimes the rest of the team , let's see if they are going back to the ugly basketball of last year ...at least they won't pretend to be good and just fight like a bottom feeding team should do!

    68 posts when he's the bad guy and people can shit on him. 17 posts when his words were twisted and he defends himself. I understand the frustration towards him and even wanting him out but the hate is on some kind of level. Not all posters but many waste everyones time with nonsense posts and shit talk that isn't even clever or funny. Primo and pasta boy are terrible in the creativity department and essentially ripping on him for being the only one on the team who gets endorsments.

    Love reading good discussion and different outlooks on the game but the ignorance on here at times makes it tough to visit the site.

    There are 2 threads on the same topic. The other thread has posts and comments related to the 'misquote' angle of the story.

    Yeah, Primo and pasta jokes are pretty lame - I am in agreement on that.
