I'd take a chance with Bargniani at this point, adding another shooter, and guy who dosen't need to be the "guy" on offense.. If Bargniani avg's 15 or 16 pts a game, he won't be critisized as much as Stat will, and can just fit in to our team, as opposed to Stat having to here he dosen't fit if he dosen't avg 20 a game with 10rebounds..
I dont love either player, but I think Bargniani would fit better..
Also, if we traded for Bargniani, its not like we coulden't add defense in this yrs draft, as theres plenty of tough defenders in this yrs class.
bargs isn't a good shooter though, check his stats. stat is a far superior player, not even close.
22 per vs. 11. not even close.
amare averaged 14 points and 5 rebounds in like 24 minutes on high efficiency. only 1.7 turnovers as well.
once again, the ONLY reason to even discuss the trade is stat's inability to stay healthy. bargs is a worse player period. even worse rebounder and defender. the idea of him being on the knicks make me want to puke.
Lots of talk on this thread about big changes to the team, but I just don't see many significant changes coming. Nor should they be. I know they lost to IND in a disappointing way, but this was still a 50 win team despite a ton of injuries and most of the team being together for the first time. You need to have some continuity and there are some reasons to like this teams' future.
No one is trading for amare's contract. The only time that may come into play is when he hits his last season. Besides, I'm not so sure he's done being a factor for this team. Having a full offseason to be with the team and find a role could make a big difference.
All Hail The New York Giants!!
in case yall forgot how great amare played this past season...
he's still one of the most talented big men in the league. it's amazing how he added a competent post game in a couple weeks training with hakeem. if only he didn't have an incompetent coach for most of his career that doesn't believe in post up basketball. his touch around the rim is outstanding.
