    Default Why aren't we running the second string offense though Bargs?

    He is by far our best offensive player off the bench. Why the hell aren't we running the offense through him? This makes even less sense when the offence is struggling and he's getting like 2-4 shots a game at most.

    Haven't you heard? Alan Anderson is the second coming of Michael Jordan. He's already not getting enough shots as is. Nobody else should ever shoot it when Alan's on the court.

    he's inefficient, and is going to hurt the team if his shot isn't falling that day.

    plus we might be stuck with big pasta until february 2014, so he needs to figure out how to be an effective 3rd/4th option.

    Gay isn't exactly helping the team either by taking 20 shots a game when regardless if he's extremely cold. I think Bargs should get the same treatment. He's better than pretty much everyone else on the bench when it comes to offense, he should getting minimum 10 shots a game.

    Bargs & JL3 should not come in unless we have a lead. They always lose it and the starters come back. But in a situation when you are in a close game or behind....leave them off. Until Andrea PUNANEE learn to run the pick & roll, rebound or even use all 6 fouls....let him ride pine.

    The reason we're losing is because the bench is struggling to do anything. Running the offence through Bargs would help that a lot.

    How hard did you have to dig to find that gem? Must have been the "12 Games of dominance"

    how?

    have you checked his percentages?

    offensive rating?

    win shares?

    assists?

    free throw attempts?

    But to answer the original question, for the exact same reasons he is no longer having the offense run through him in the starting lineup.

    I dont think its a terrible idea.

    But only because it means Anderson takes less shots (lower FG%)

    Im sorta new here but Im assuming this crackhead gets exposed like this all the time? ...and who said anything about rebounds? we all know Bargs can't rebound, shiet we're talking about Bargs being the first option when the benchers are on.
    It wasn't long ago when the starting Barniani was our first option (or shared it with DD). Obviously the dude can score so it would only make sense to give him the green light while playing with the scrubs. Let him work his way out of this funk, let him re-build his confidence and, whithout a doubt, he can be a nice peice coming off the bench. So many people here let their hate for the guy muddle up the bigger picture. Good thing these guys are 'coach potato coaches' sheesh.

    NoPropsneeded> you can't get more rebounds than Bargs - your watching the game at home on TSN! You can get yourself a sandwich

    ok a bit much

    You can't judge his offensive game on 4 shots a game which is what he's been getting since gay got here. Bargs was struggling early this year but in the past he's been a a fairly good offensive. If you have forgotten, He was averaging 42-47% for a stretch of 3 years.

    I really hope they don't bring him back next year.

    Figure out how to be an effective 3rd/4th option??! lol what? Bargs is not going to rebound and his defensive skills aren't exactly all star calibur. This was apparent a looong time ago. Anyone who follows this team know that his biggest upside is his scoring. He's a tall body than can stretch the floor and is an above avarage spot up shooter. So what do you suggest? How the hell can he be an effective player shooting 2-4 shots per game?
