Proud Warrior, NBA isn't that physical either. I mean look at Wade and how easy he gets to the free throw line. Many would say Euroleague has been more physical/their game is similar to how NBA was played in the 80's.
Kiyaman, I respect your post.
I guess I'll let Gallo's performance take the place of me presenting an argument.
I'm normally accurate with predictions.
Gallo has all star potential, seriously.
I'm not too sure about Chandler. Just reminds me of Bobby Simmons with his production and efficiency.
Bobby Simmons with a lesser jumpshot.
Chandler shoots 30% from 3pt...and 41% from FG. Those are some Crawful numbers.
I'm not too confident about Chandler being given a big role on this team.
Chandler's intensity isn't there all the time too, sometimes he could get lost in he game. I mean, when he's on, he's obviously an impact. But theres a reason why he was picked in the late first round. Not many scouts expected him to be anything special. He's actually peaking above expectations right now...14 ppg isn't really something to wow about. Huge imporvement from last year, but still...Knicks nation are putting too much stock into him. I know he's 21...but just because someone is young gives them the pass all the time. A lot of young dudes just stay at a certain throughout their careers unless their name is Dwight Howard or Lebron James.
Can we agree Wilson Chandler isn't as aggressive as he should be?
I mean Paul hit it right on head in the Big **** thread.
Great post, Paul.
I just feel like Gallo offers so many from so many different dimensions.
Gallo is really elite for his age at these three attributes.
Then you add his agility, 6"10 and still growing frame.
Then you add his confidence, awareness, IQ, swag, aggressiveness, assertiveness...
You just have a really matured developed prospect, not a project, but a TRUE prospect who can produce right away.
Wilson Chandler is 2nd on the team in FGA
Question to you guys.
How far do we expect to go when our secondary option is a 14 ppg 41% FG scorer?
When Chris Duhon has a higher FG than you, then you know its a fail.
I'm not that IMPRESSED with Chandler, I was in the hype; but now I'm out after watching Chandler play 30 NBA games.
Chandler should be producing Shawn Marion type numbers, but I don't think he has the agressiveness to do be that productive.
I guess its the right thing to be happy with his 14/5/41% FG?
