(Bargnani's) situation immediately brought up echoes of the last guy the Raptors gave heavy minutes to solely because he was a first-round pick, but let's not start the Rafael Araujo comparisons just yet. Unlike Hoffa, Bargnani demonstrated considerable ability in his rookie season; it's just unfortunate that he regressed so much last season.Espen is projecting the Raps for 47 wins and the No. 5 playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.
