While we’ve all been dialed in on Lithuania and Jonas Valanciunas, Andrea Bargnani has been growing out a beard and doing some things. For example:

Yes. I’m as pleasantly surprised as you. Bargs throwing it down on Boris Diaw. Bargnani continued to play well for Italy, finishing with a game-high 22 points to go with five rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot. Unfortunately for Bargnani, Italy ended up losing the game against France, 91-84. Still, an aggressive Bargnani is always a beautiful sight for Raptors fans. #FearTheBeard Bargnani style. It works.
