    Yes. Bargnani has never even played for a good coach in his pro career.

      If Bargs was playing PF next to Dwight, pretty sure he'd be considered an elite defender as well. Turk went from the top defensive squad on the magic to one of the worst in history, that tells me that Turk was being hidden in Orland and exposed in Toronto. Bargs defense is a product of the system he's in.

      Give him an improved Derozan and Weems who can actually keep thier man in front of them and fast rotations and have Amir swooping to help the weak side and Bargs will be just fine.

        Amir is not an ideal floormate for Bargnani. His weakside defence is no better or worse than Bosh.

          Bosh has no weakside help, he doesn't have a quick enough first jump to alter shots or a high enough defensive IQ to anticipate the play. Amir is constantly rotating over and exploding at defenders. The dude was not born to keep his feet on the ground.

          Perfect example is the GS game. GS had the breakaway with 10 seconds left and Bosh ran at Chris Hunter who passed off to an open Curry who had an easy dunk when Amir swooped in and seemingly got all ball, but got whistled because he has no court cred yet.

            djezus dave bargnani is raptors best 1 on 1 defender ...
            what ruins his defense is him constantly having to switch and pick up the pg or wing because everything passes our perimeter defenders
            calderon jack derozan weems hedo beli get constantly beat off the dribble leaving our bigs constantly running behind
            against the bulls bargnani had to defend rose more then he had to defend any big
            the constant penetration is the biggest problem for the raptors
            he's guarding rose , calderon gets outrebounded by noah huge shocker
            all our bigs constantly run behind the facts
            if it is bosh, amir or reggie the points keep pilling on for the other teams

            bargs rebounding is the huge whole in his game ,the rest is the result of a team with no concept of defense
