    damn i dont like where this team is headin...i can see us being a great offensive team. Offense wins games but defense wins championships. His lateral quickness is in question...i can see small forwards burning him and taller players going over him. Its gonna be a little while before we know how good he is...hes still young. ****!!

    Points Per 40-Minutes Pace Adjusted
    21.3 ppg; finished top 4 amongst small fowards in the draft
    Danilo Gallinari's Italian League scoring average rounds out the top five. The Italian forward's Euroleague numbers are also quite impressive, considering they came against the highest level of competition in the world outside of the NBA.
    -From this, we established the fact Danilo is an elite scorer

    Danilo Gallinari took care of the ball despite his age and the high level of competition he went against, with Gallinari’s total being notably impressively considering how much ball-handling he does for his team as both a playmaker and slasher.
    -From this we establish that Danilo doesn't turn the ball over and can take care over the ball. That is HUGE with a team full of turnover prone jackasses

    John Hollinger’s pure point rating [100 x (League Pace / Team Pace) x ([(Assists x 2/3) - Turnovers] / Minutes] is considered by some to be a superior way of measuring how well a player distributes the ball, as it rewards high volume assist gatherers over low-risk types, while docking players more who turn the ball over at a high rate.
    Gallinari ranked 2nd in his position

    Danilo Gallinari shows excellent ball-handling skills and polished body control inside, and these abilities helped him grab the top two spots on the list. He’s likely a better athlete than most people are giving him credit for, and this table here backs that up. Very rarely do you see European players faring so well in this particular stat, which is one of his biggest draws as a prospect. T

    Danilo Gallinari is not just an excellent slasher, he can also shoot the ball fairly well.


    Steals Per 40-Minutes Pace Adjusted
    2.4 STEALS for a 6"10 foward.
    Gallinari is actually a good defender. Showed varying levels of interest on the defensive end throughout the year

    Metrocard ur a star. Absoultely proved my point that this was a good pick and people shouldnt make judgements on players without doing either your own research or watch him play

    Elite scorer against euroleaguers were big men routinely foul out. Wasn't Andrea Bargnani "elite" as well? And he's bigger (7'0) and routinely fails to get his shot in the NBA over smaller guys. So this bull**** about elite proves your an idiot. How do you drive in the NBA? You have to be FASTER THAN THE GUY DEFENDING YOU. GALLINARI AKA BIG ****SUCKER ISN'T FAST AT ALL. There's guy like Adam Morrison that tested closed to Michael Jordan with those same bull**** tests you speak of. Based on the same battery of bull**** tests, Morrison is the next mental Michael Jordan. Those test aren't reality. There bull**** for people like you you know nothing about the league to spout a stat. So lets recap. Bargnani bigger = NBA failure. Slow = No Drive capability. Euroleague = Slightly less than the NBDL. That's why guys like Juan Carlos Navarro go back to Europe cause quite frankly they aren't good enough to play here.
