Do you guys realize Durant was the second overall draft pick while Gallo was the 6th? If not for peoples obsession with 7 footers Durant easily would have been the overal number one pick.
The NBA draft is often very subjective and in many ways a crap shoot. Usually there are 2-3 can't miss prospects and then from their your drafting solely on potential. There have been more misses then hits when it comes to draft picks.

The fact of the matter is Gallo is young and averaging nearly 15ppg well not hurting our salary cap situation at all. You can say he's a bust (you'd be wrong) but he's far superior then over half the players drafted in the exact same spot on the draft.
Let his career get some legs before you hate just for the sake of hating. We're all frustrated with this team but relax alittle.
Gallo is averaging 14 points a game while throwing up enough bricks to build the GREAT WALL OF CHINA..... And you guys are DUMB enough to think that David Lee's scoring and rebounding has no postive effect on the game but Gallo getting starter minutes and shooting all those bricks is OK???? Gallo only gets his measly 14 points a game because his Godfather let's him stay out on the floor and shoot all them bricks..... Why do you think Gallo only wanted to play in New York????? The weather???? Because his Godfather allows him to stay on the floor AND SHOOT THE TEAM OUT OF GAMES..... I mean this is ridiculous....... Did you see Gallo's statline last night??? That's the norm, not the exception..... You think that doesn't matter..... It takes big efforts from the Vets on the team to cover for the "Rookies" off shooting nights....C'mon gimme a break

I gave various reasons for my opinions and am merely sharing my observations on him. I always give Lee credit for being a good player so how am I hating?
The truth is the truth.
Pierce is still the man on the Celtics even with Allen and KG. Lee would immidiately become the 3rd or 4th option in that same scenerio.
Your not making any sense. Please go back and read my original post.
