Big C, thanks for the video. But the Knicks Danillo Gallinari did not play in the 2nd Game vs Spurs. The reason Why is
Bum wasted Lottery Pick! Danilo Gallinari
He cant even play 5 summer games.
The Proffesional Euro League is that soft?
Another Coach Pet Player, and I thought the Knicks organization learned something from all of Isiah Pet Players.
Coach Isiah Thomas gave all of his "Pet-Players" so much playingtime when all they could produce were poor performances. Coaching like that affects the winning players on the roster waiting for some playingtime.
Danilo Gallinari is a coach Pet project that committed mistake after mistake his first 23 minutes on the court (with pure poor performance), and still gets more playingtime over 4 DNP teammates. It reminds me of coach Isiah Thomas doing. Now he cant play because the Summer League is to rough for him, so he pulls a Q.Richardson sore back injury like he was the only one that bumbed into Tractor Trailer. BULLSHUUT!
Knick-Fans are watching the Knicks summer League games to see Gallinari performance vs rookie NBA players.
And coach D'Antoni is resting Gallinari so he can play for the Olympics???????
Aint nothing changed with this Knick Team with the hiring of two more Idiots in Walsh and D'Antoni...
I would let him play in olympics, its as much expirience as summer league, heck its more. he will learn things at the olympics, if every other team can let their players go why can't we?
So basically you want Gallo to play in the 5 MEANINGLESS summer league games against players that for the most part won't be in the league and risk injury, rather then have him fully healthy for training camp?
This kid played a full Euro League season then did the workout tour, he's probably burned out. It's not like these games matter, he took place in the small mini camp over the weekend. Who cares about these games. I don't even see the point for Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson to be playing in these games. The Bulls shut down Rose, the Clippers shut down Gordon and we shut down the guy we hope will be a big contributor over the next decade. Sounds like the smart move to me.
Also he's not even attending the Italian team camp anymore, he's skipping that to concentrate on getting into training camp shape.
I know theres nothing going on so we try to make the summer league mean something, but its meaningless and were looking far to much into it. I mean we were undefeated and had the summer league MVP last season and we only won 23 games, pretty obvious summer league games don't matter.
Gallo not playing in some summer league games is the least of our problems. I'd be more worried about the Marbury situation and trying to trade Zach Randolph then our 6th overall pick playing in some highschool gym games.
Also you complain about guys playing in these games then you also argue about players on the roster getting DNP? I mean are you serious, why do this grocery store guys deserve minutes, since for some reason Chandler, Nate, and Roberson are on the team they might as well play. If your the 12th guy on a summer league team its time to just give up.
Kiya all us posters for the most part are pessimestic about this team except for the real young kids who think we can win 50 games. But your pessimism reaches a whole new level. You hate on people who haven't even done anything yet.
I think Danilo needs to hit the weight room as soon as possible. In the NBA the players are more physical and he will get hit like that all the time. I hope this does not mean he will sit out when things get tough. Gallinari's jumpshot did look good. At the same time in Italy the 3 point shot is closer compared to the NBA shot being far out. I see Danilo as a 2 year project. The things this kid needs to work on are:
Strong postup moves
And a signature move
I guess the feeling is the Knicks don't expect to go anywhere next year or the year after. The only thing that matters is 2010. Which I suspect will get us probably Joe Johnson. I can't see the Knicks getting Wade or Lebron.
The one thing that I did see that was good is the development of Wilson Chandler. I think the guy can play both ends of the court. He also has a jumpshot to go with his ability to get to the hole.
I am still don't know what the Knicks will do as far as playing defense and rebounding. This team needs rebounds to run the break.
