Why are people considering Pau for Barg and Calderon? Yea Pau isn't that great defensively, but he's miles better than Bargniani, who is about as tough as a marshmallow. We have to deal with Z-bo, David Lee, Biff, Ibaka, Duncan, Faried, Dirk Nowitzki, and potentially Kevin Love out here. If we try to trot Bargniani out there we'll be chewed up and spat out by those guys on the offensive glass and in the paint. Calderon isn't exactly known as a defensive stopper either, that trade makes us worse not better IMO.
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.
