Andrea Bargnani: The Centre who plays like he’s 6 inches shorter

New readers, please check out the basics before leaving any comments. The following post is a post I wrote (with Dre's help) over at the Wages of Wins Journal.

Andrea Bargnani is a bad player. He is a historically bad player. His assigned job is centre. Yet, he does none of the jobs expected of a centre. Some people defend Bargnani and it’s often with one of these two arguments:
  • Bargnani isn’t your run-of-the-mill centre. Treat him like a shooting guard. 
  • Bargnani is an offensive centre [You can say that again!]. His scoring is his skill and any good team could use it.
