Andrea Bargnani, formerly of the Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks, seems to be enjoying his life after retiring from professional basketball.
The former first overall pick seems to be doing quite a lot since then. His work and affiliations can be seen in his Instagram bio, but for some reason, the NBA hasn’t been mentioned.

Andrea Bargnani was never able to live up to the billing of a first overall draft pick when the Toronto Raptors selected him in 2006. He also had stints with the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets later in his career, but it didn’t work out either. The last time that he was in the NBA was during the 2015-16 season.
He last played for the Spanish club Baskonia in 2017.
Then we’re seeing this, an Instagram bio of a seemingly very busy man.
Well, if these are all true, then good for him. At least he’s able to do something that makes him happy after walking away from the game of basketball.
Although he wasn’t able to live up to the expectations, Andrea Bargnani still had a pretty decent NBA career, with averages of 14.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists through 10 seasons. In fact, he even put up 11.8 points as a member of Baskonia two years ago, which means he still has a lot left in his tank.
Then again, he’s happily retired.
We’re just wondering why he didn’t mention ‘former NBA player’ in his IG bio? There might be a limit to the number of characters you can put in that section of your profile? Who knows?
Eh, at least we know he’d doing fine.
