    Default Bargnani on NBA TV Arena Link, post Nets game

    Am I the only one who's noticed a significant improvement in Andrea's English this year in comparison to previous years? lol

    Maybe that's why he is playing better, he can actually understand what the coaches and team-mates want from him and then communicate back.

    Belli should also be a better player by next year (just from learning english alone) because his english too is slowly improving and needs to improve.

    Hedo .... he's been in North America for 10 years and its a lost cause... BALL!!

    no, that's just because he is a personal dude. he isnt outspoken and just keeps to himself. plus,he doesnt really know any of the raps media.



    imagine having jack armstrong looking at you with that squinted eye open mouth wrinkled lip freckled face of his. scary

    Our little center is all grown up!

    Seriously, we treat the guy like he's our pet.

    Lol, because he was a kid when he came to the league. Imagine, you are 19 years old, and you live in Europe. You do not know any English, and you are drafted as the number 1 pick. You go and play with all these ****** in North America, where all they do is making fun of you. It must have been very hard on him...

    I don't think he understood the smack in his first year. By the time he came back as a sophmore he understood it and let it get to him.

    What a good interview. Even Andrea seemed more receptive to the questions than he usually is. If only the Raptors studio team could figure out how to do their job...

    @ Bryan Colangelo

    As the worldly GM you are, who likes the international set and is not particularly a N. American centric, you must surely appreciate the adjustment required by a 20 yr. old Italian who just knew enough English to order room service, probably left home for the first time away from mamma, was the first overall pick (had no idea what that meant), had to change his game drastically, listen to the on-court smack, deal with a Smitch and had a helluva time finding a good Italian restaurant....that was really cold.
