HoopsHype Andrea Bargnani rumors

August 5, 2013 Updates

Though Bargnani has had a 102-degree fever the past two days and is questionable for the opener vs. Georgia, he has shown the Italian coaching staff he is a different person and player than he was during his ill-fated stint with the national team two years ago. Team Italy began training camp July 24 prepping for next month’s European Championships. “I think he’s more mature,” Team Italy’s associate coach Mario Fioretti told The Post. “He knows better how we need to play at a certain level for European basketball. He’s more aware of what he needs to do and is more wise. He’s more helpful this summer than that last summer [2011], is my feeling.’’ New York Post

A quote about you last year: “He was never in shape. He didn’t care.” Andrea Bargnani: Who’s that coming from? Q: No name was put on it. Andrea Bargnani: I can tell you that coming into the training camp I was in great shape. And then after the [elbow and wrist] injury, it took me two months to get back on the court. And because of the injury, I couldn’t lift weights at all for two months. That was so bad. When I came back, I was weaker. It was impossible to be in shape. New York Post
