I think we have to keep both until we see what kind of player each develops into. It's way to early to guess about where they will wind up based on what they've shown to date. At a minimum, we also have to consider the possibility that Gallo's back becomes chronic issue. Finally, Gallo is still growing and is expected to max out 1 or 2 inches taller than he is now. There is no reason he can't become a PF if he grows a little and fills out some as he matures.
HAHA now thats comedy
Man, that behind the back dribble followed by a sick off-balance shot was sick. That's what I call swagger. I don't even mind his 6 fuls. I think given his back problems 18 minutes are pleanty of burn for him right now. Especially if he mangages to fill the stats sheet as he has up to now.
Why does Chandler shoot so many three's when he's a 29% 3pt shooter?
He should be rebounding at a higher rate too...His rebounding so far has looked Tim Thomasesque.
I see nothing special in this dude...Unless he breaks out into a 20 and 9 Josh Smithesque type performance.
This **** reminds me of when people were on Isiah's team and the demographics of Isiahsexuals were overpopulated...then later with trial and error they proved to be wrong for supporting bad.
Chandler is a young athletic player.
Don't fall for the hype.
I know this, I have a strong feeling.
I feel like we should ship him now to get BETTER before 2010 and make the playoffs this year...but his value is very high. Use it now before its gone(like how Curry's value was high but Isiah wasn't even going to accept Shaq for him.
Give Chandler a year or two and he should really do good...if not then see you later, New York isn't for guys to take years to develop there game...we need winners right away. Gallo is proving that he is a winner right away in only a few games...I see his future being more bright than Chandler's as of right now.
Chandler is a great fit. He's young practically a rookie, unselfish and has a great upside. He rebounds, has shown a ability to improve and best of all he actually plays defense! He is hands down better than Gallo (nothing against Gallo) at this point and would run circles around him in a 1 on 1. Gallo has a pure shooters stroke and has "raw" talent. But he needs to improve especially on the defensive end. His footwork isn't the greatest and his rebounding needs improvement. At 6'10 and growing he needs to hit the glass and play d better. But I'm not expecting too much from him, I realize he's still young like Chandler and with time will improve. Chandler has had some very good games. He is obviously still inconsistant but his upside is a pleasent suprise. Along with what I mentioned above his athleticism and egoless play indicates a keeper and a sleeper not someone we want to get rid of. He's not a PF he's a SF who needs to improve his perimeter game and gain confidence which I believe has something to do with his prev. knee injury. Yet he has been asked/expected to play bigger than what he is and has done a better job than anyone could have expected. Keep sleeping on him and he's gonna kill you- mark my words!
i agree...chandler has been asked to do a lot...maybe gallo will help him out and we could really see chandler rise
Chandlers been playing better since coming off the bench he seems comfortable with the roll and he accepts it with is 2 huge upsides, the Chandler Gallo thing could work
CHANDLER AND GALLO PLAY WELL TOGETHER!!!!! Bottom line! LOL!
The key point to consider is that D'Antoni doesn't define players as PGs, SGs, SFs, PFs and Cs. He wants long versatile offensive players that can guard multiple positions. Gallo and Chandler play well together on the offensive end and Chandler is an extremely versatile defender. We are going to keep both and both will be excellent players.
