The New York Post reports: Of his rookie season, Danilo Gallinari said, “It was a positive, great experience. Even if I didn’t didn’t play a whole season it was great to play, great staying in this city.” Gallinari, in his last season in the Italian League in 2006-2007, lost twice to Maccabi. He raved about playing in the Tel Aviv arena. “The Maccabi gym is incredible, if you have a chance, you should go,” Gallinari said. “You go into that gym, it’s an incredible atmosphere. Everyone’s wearing yellow T-shirts. It is crazy. It’s beautiful.”
