Undefeated wrote:He lacks the polish and defenses often will send over an extra defender to double him at the markers when he has the ball on a post-up forcing him to pass out of the double because he isn't exactly a proficient passer passing out of trouble against trap and it usually results in a turnover. According to SynergySports he has a turnover rate of 23.1% which is godly high, so that's probably why the team doesn't trust him lol. And he needs to stop swinging his elbows.

However, there shouldn't be any excuses as to why he's getting looked off when he dives to the rim after slipping the screen. He's got hands of glue being able to catch the ball in any awkward position.


Indeed, this is what I see. An example in the 3rd quarter against Orlando at 10:30 mark.
Again, not sure what is the rush, and keep seeing people hyping on our young talents will not make them any good. Keep his role simple, hope he enjoys his rookie season, and focus on correcting himself is his goal for this season.

I think it's fair that Val doesn't get many opportunities on isos, as he is not capable yet to play 1on1 to good results, but when he is rolling after screen, these times you can trust him to score or get fouled.


Jonas's touches probably have nothing to do with Bargnani. But at bad as Bargnani shooting 35%, many of the plays are designed for him to shoot and have our rebounders ready. In the exception of some non-sense moves by Bargnani, most of Calderon's play run through Bargnani has a higher percentage of getting back the possession. Of course, I don't like some of his shot selections, and wish Bargnani can turn himself into playmaker instead (need Casey to work with him on the passing options).
