Fitting Into a 3-Heavy Offense


The key to Andrea Bargnani's success with the Knicks will depend on his ability to shoot the three-ball. The last two seasons haven't been Il Mago's best from distance, but under Mike Woodson's three-heavy system, Bargnani has a chance to be a lethal offensive accessory—as opposed to carrying the full scoring load like he did with the Toronto Raptors.

His defense will be a factor as well—if he can prove to be an imposing figure in the paint beside Tyson Chandler, the Knicks' frontline would be among the best all-around units in the East.
