    you could argue that Bargnani is a worse #1 pick than Greg Oden. at least Portland isn't paying Oden and he's not soaking up minutes and cap space at this point

    I feel bad for the dude, but Oden was a far, far worse pick than Bargnani. Dude only managed to played 82 games in the past 6 years AND they drafted him over Kevin friggin Durant!

    I should have clarified that I was ignoring sunk costs, as per the article that idfnl posted. Right now, Oden isn't costing the Blazers anything other than the opportunity cost of a wasted #1 pick. Bargs, on the other hand, is arguably also a waste of a #1 pick in that he is a negative contributor to his team's likelihood of winning games, and takes up team resources and blocks the development of players behind him

    For anyone to have the prime of their career cut short through no fault of their own is a sad thing.


    Now? Sure. I'm no Bargs apologist, but he did put up some good numbers over a few seasons.

    Not bad, but why would Atlanta want to do this?

    I have no idea. :lol:

    seriously though, josh smith is walking next year the odds of chris paul/dwight howard/andrew bynum going to atlanta is very low, they might as well get some talent back for him. its a stretch, but danny ferry is a fucking idiot whenever he has impending big salary cap decisions. even when he's heading to a good place with the salary cap ferry ends up pulling :confused: trades that sort of make sense but ultimately disappoint (just remember all of the "big trades" he made during the lebron era cavs).

    i don't know, sounds like just another over-entitled 19-year-old millionaire to me.

    Pau might ask for trade if D'Antoni & Howard stays next year.

    It's disheartening for a fan, it's gotta be tough for hte players. the great thing about jackson was that he treated the players as adults and was flexible in the way he handled them. d'antoni seems determined to fit every square peg into his system, round hole or not. it's ridiculous the way he's treated gasol, not just in terms of playing time, but in openly deriding him. there's nothing to be gained by that.

    Dikembe looks like he's still in pretty good shape
