I don't think this kind of commotion was made over David Lee and he made the all-star team.
I guess its because we all knew David Lee was as good as he was going to get as a player. The 08-09 season David Lee is what he was as a player in the NBA, and we all were pretty much right on considering hes settled into his role as a 3rd option in GS.
With Gallo we didnt know what he would turn into, hes still only 22, and has given us flashes some nights of what he might just be.
On a sidenote lets not forget Gallo is a young 6'10 Italian man in the NY Metropolitan Area who is attractive to nearly every girl I know. Mix that in with having a likable personality with his interactions with the media. Then to top it off he is sometimes flashy & has a swagger to him on the court. Thats a NYC superstar right there.
Just like Derek Jeter, he fit the celebrity culture of New York. Thats why the Nets are probably dying to bring him to Brooklyn.
Yea either that or a target for a goldigger to cry rape unfortunately.But I agree, Gallo could be a cheap short term solution to the face of the franchise dilemma until they get a superstar.The guy just has "market me" written all over him.He may not ever be the Dirk ppl want him to be but he sure as hell looks better lol. Dirk looks like something out of a Tim Burton movie
I never said or questioned who's better gallo or mello but it's if we were losing something out of a deal it would of been him. If somehow we kept him and worked on getting a legit center that would be really good.
Anybody else see Gallo and the rest watching the Denver game standing by the bench? They seem more at ease with being traded than I would have thought they would. I know it's a business but I'm sure they would have preferred to have stayed a Knick and not a Nugget. Then again, maybe they see this as a chance to standout in the league in a new team.
Gallo and Chandler were two of my favs. I'm gonna miss them and wish them the best. I'll cheer for Denver as long as they play for the Nuggets.
I'm almost sure Felton will be traded if not by the deadline, then this summer.It was clear,even with Chauncey,they want Ty Lawson to eventually become the PG of the future there.I would liek to see Gallo on the Nets or the Clippers.I actually think Chandler would fit in better in the Clippers system though.
I've never seen this much admiration for a player who's never cracked 20 ppg in their entire career. Gallo is having a good year. Yes. But he's getting 17 and 5. He's far from All NBA 1st team. Please get off his nuts. Denver is playing at it's peak. They can't add but so many players and they are a pretty good but not great team. End of the day, with all the "buyer's remorse" bullshit, they only one 1 more playoff game than we did. Teams win rings with superstars and a supporting cast. If you wanna go to the 2nd round and lose every year, then by all means...become a Denver fan. Are thing perfect here? No. But that doesn't mean it was all because of the Melo trade. Furthermore, when playoff time comes and the superstars are playing at their best, I'll take Carmelo Anthony against any other teams star and feel comfortable. Gallo....not so much. Melo has already hit tons of game winners in clutch situations. Gallo has already blown a layup and nearly cost his team the game against us. End of the day, you don't win rings with guys that are just pretty good. You have to look down the line. Teams are going to try and mimic Miami's model and get superstars. I for one dont want to be caught spectating while LeBitch is winning rings, all because I was too stubborn and didn't wanna give up guys that aren't franchise players.
When all those guys were here, we had a complete team and we were only 2 games above .500 We're not too far off that and we only have a shell of a team. Let's focus on the real issues here. Bench depth and our idiot coach.
