As we all know, Bargnani is immensely talented but does not bring a consistent effort level night-in and night-out. That, more than talent, is what separates him from the all-stars.
Is it just me, or was pulling him out for Amir on many offence/defence substituions a while back the catalyst for his improved effort on the glass and in transition? I think it was. He has not delivered the same effort recently.
Andrea needs to be managed - he needs to be given an opportunity to shine but there need to be consequences for the days that he lays an egg... And I think Triano and Jack (as coach and team leader) need to make Andrea accountable.
What do you think makes Andrea tick? How would you get the most out of him?
