    Default How good will Lee, Chandler, and Gallinari be.

    David Lee, Wilson Chandler, and Danilo Gallinari are the three players with the highest chance of remaining in a Knick uniform and in D'Antoni's rotation, for the start of the 2010-2011 season.

    That is, unless you include Duhomo.

    How good do you think David Lee, Wilson Chandler, and Danilo Gallinari will be, once they fully develop?

    Here is each player's current numbers.

    19.1 points on 55.8% fg, 11.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, .3 blocks

    Wilson Chandler

    14.7 points on 46.6% fg, 5.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists, .8 blocks

    Lee: totally depends on where he will be. If he is on a stacked team, his numbers would be around 15 and 10. I think his defense can improve, but not by much. Playing for us where he is basically our best option is the only way he can get an enormous paycheck. His numbers would be nowhere where they are now on, say, a healthy Blazers squad.


    Gallo: Somewhere between Bargnani right now and Dirk's MVP year, although I might be homering a little bit. 23/8 sounds about right. If he gets injured a little, then 18/7. Has the highest ceiling of the three. Most likely to stay a Knick. Imo, our only untradable piece.

    Chandler: Again, depends. Could be a third scoring option on a championship team if he exceeds potential. His personality is a lot like Tim Duncan, real humble and quiet-ish. Only Duncan is a GOAT player.

    Lee is already VERY GOOD.

    GALLINARI will be GREAT.

    CHANDLER has the potential to be great but he just seems a little lazy in the court to me.

    Lee: If he resigns with the knicks, he will put up similar numbers for at least 3 or 4 years; after that I see his numbers decline when he loses some athletism

    Gallo: I think 18/7 is very likely, longside 3 assists, 1 block and 1 steal, scoring numbers might go up a little, depending on which free agents we're going to get. Assuming we get LBJ, I see Gallo as our third option on O.

    Chandler: same as above, his numbers depend on who we'll sign. His D might be more import than his offensive output, so I think his numbers will be stagnant.

    Thumbs down I already see where this thread is going....

    I already see where this thread is going....

    All 3-players were drafted as SF

    Watching 7.0 Dirk career in Dallas.....when Playoff time comes for a 7 game series....as a fan or coach, would I want Dirk as my center? NO!
    would I want Dirk as my PF? Hell NO!
    The game change when it's time for the "Playoffs" where simple strategies has been used to beat the Dallas Mavericks in a series the last 6 years.
    In the regular season Dirk can bring bigmen out of the paint area, but in the playoffs oponents dont care if Dirk score 50 points just as long as the Mavs dont WIN.

    In last season playoffs with Cavs vs Magic, if the Cavs would've traded either player "Big Z, or Varejao, or Ben Wallace" for a 30 minute hustling David Lee, do u think the Magic would've beat the Cavs in a series?

    The same question could be asked about trading "Wally or Pavolic" for a Wilson Chandler whom add something on both ends of the court.

    Angry Watch all of Gallo's performance before commenting on it with all the HYPE

    I like Gallo, but I dislike all his FANS and his DUM-Coach Dantoni for giving him minutes of playingtime he still is not ready for.
    Gallo is a 18 to 26 minute player this season.

    Gallo has to many FLAWS, inwhich none of his fans ever mention.
    And all of Gallo-fans refuse to admitt that Gallo's 33 minutes per game through the 1-9 start had alot to do with all those loses. Or the Knicks 4 game winning streak started with a DNP Gallo, and a 21 minute Gallo in the 2nd game.

    1) This is his first full NBA season making him a rookie, inwhich oponents screen us to take the ball to the rookie.
    2) Gallo defense may block or defend 1 or 2 oponents while 6 oponents score on him.
    3) Gallo dont favor the right hand in his dribble he only dribbles with his right hand.
    4) Gallo do not know how to move without the ball, causing his teammates several turnovers throwing him the ball.
    5) Gallo plants him self behind the 3 before receiving the ball, so u have to throw him a direct-pass where he is allowed to only move one foot to catch the pass or it results in a turnover.
    6) Gallo being such a good peremeter shooter averaging 11 shot attempts per game while shooting 7 of those shots from the 3-point line in 32 mpg at 40% shooting....is a flaw.<!-- google_ad_section_end --><!-- / message -->

    Default possible futures

    Gallo will be a Hedo Turkoglu....Dirk type...maybe not as good as Dirk but better defensively.

    Chandler is honestly skies the limit....a better Shawn Marion for now

    Hill....has some really nice post moves but we haven't seen him enough to really compare him to anyone...but he is ferocious rebounder and has good awareness but gets into too much foul trouble..his athleticism gives him an advantage

    Douglas...good outside shot and tough defender...name me a PG who is as fast as him, has a shot and play B+ defense.

    Duhon....either completely over rated or puts too much pressure on himself and fails...the 2nd theory is what Mike D thinks 24/7...eventually he will have to realize that Duhon is a D+ PG

    Those options in your poll are horrible... You saying a guy who is the most elite PF in the league and then a guy who is not proven and then you mention bust twice.

    I put Dirk Nowitzki in the poll, because a lot of people compare him to Nowitzki. I put better than Nowitzki, so that people who feel he will be
    Kobe Bryant like can choose that.

    I put Andrea Bargnani, because people also compare the two players.

    I put Tim Thomas, because Tim Thomas is a good role player who can knock down threes, and Gallinari has shot the three well this season.

    I put a bust, so that people who don't feel Gallinari will be worthy of the #6 pick could also vote.

    I think the poll was fair, and the options were good. I could be wrong.
    I respect your opinion.
