    Thank you, Jim, for at least giving credit where credit is due...I feel like some people want so badly to be right they can't even give credit to a player they don't like.

    Gallo had nice numbers yesterday, instead of sitting here bashing him saying "He's a one-time wonder" why can't we at least put a positive spin on it, "He played well yesterday but he has to do it on a more consistent basis." I am not a big fan of Nate, never really was, but when he had good games, I said the former, not the latter.

    People need to stop wanting to be right so badly they will do anything to detract from anything positive. If you think it's a one-time deal, then fine. But at least give the guy credit for a nice game yesterday...

    Well you know what all this back and forth made me WANT to really see the game last night so I went to my corner tap that has the NBA ticket. Showed up just in time for the 3rd quarter.... Which used to be my Tuesday night routine years ago anyway(Knicks on TNT w/Hubie).

    Hey I knew I would have to eat a little crow today, but it was nicer to see the Knicks get a win. Gallo could easily average 20 points a night if he played like he did in the 3rd all the time. Gallo posted up smaller guys and got to the line. Couldn't understand why D'ant sat the hot hand for most of the 4th quarter, but that's another story.... Highlight of the year as far a I'm concerned and something to look forward to...

    All everyone has been really saying is give the guy time and a chance to develop. He looks to be improving and at this point that is all we can ask for.

    Kudos to you for being reasonable. I get the feeling some of the others are disappointed that he played well.

    Good win last night. Gallo really impressed me when he started mixing up his shot selection. He would probably be more consistent if he played inside out more often. It seems like he plays better when he sees a real challenge in front of him. Dantoni has to somehow get Gallo to channel that energy in his everyday normal play.

    Barron has been solid in his two games BUT I really need to see more defense from him. Its cool to have 18pts and 17 rbs in 44 min as a center, but not having at least 1 blk shot is a bit disappointing. BOS really had no problem scoring in the post. This team needs a big that can rebound and defend. His rebounding seems up to par so far, now he needs to show the coaching staff some defensive presence. Also, he will probably need to bulk up a bit if he really wants the starting job next season.

    Like I said before, I'll evaluate Barron through the rest of the season and summer league. These last few games just isn't enough time to fully evaluate this guy. It's just like with Bender where some people were ready to anoint him as a legitimate piece to Dantoni's system but then realized he was a dud within a few weeks.

    Why the hell is Duhon starting again AND getting more minutes that TD and Rodriguez????????? Duhon must be swallowing now because Pringles loves him some Chris.

    Default But they won

    True, but I'm just glad Duhon played a pass-first mentality. I don't know how he was there for so long, but 8 assists is pretty decent for a third-stringer.

    I was really impressed that the Knicks still managed to score that much despite being riddled with injuries (and dead weight).

    I thought this was Douglas's time to shine, win or lose. Guess Dantoni isn't finished f****** with players' psyche yet. Seriously, it should be S. Rod and Douglas sharing the minutes.

    From what I saw, Gallo looked real sharp...I like his game and I dont have a problem with the decision Donnie (or Antoni) made a couple years ago when we drafted him. I think the **** has potential, the more he plays and the more experience he gets, the better he'll be. The way he played against Bumston should give him some confidence, and I also want to say that for once I agree with JimChief, his opinions on Gallinari are on point.

    +1, Good unbiased observation. And I hope Danny Granger elbows Gallo or something to get him pumped up. It is aggravating to see him camp when we all know what he can do when he is aggresive. This is the reason I really believe that if he works his ass off this offseason, he can be something special. Like most prospects we only see his good traits in spurts. I hope he puts a large emphasis of his work this offseason on a mid-range game, post game, and his ability to penetrate. The 3 point line should only be an accesory for him, not a place where he lives (which I'll admit it it seems he's scared to move an inch over the line at times). Also I am one of the few people who supports Gallo who also supports Wilson Chandler's development. I really want to see this pair work next year.

    Gallinari's 31 points lead Knicks over Celtics

    April 7, 2010 By ALAN HAHN

    It should be considered progress that the main concern with Danilo Gallinari is no longer about his once problematic back but his enigmatic drive. And the encouraging sign there is that the hotter things get on the court, the more fiery the 21-year-old Italian gets.

    His career-high 31-point performance in last night's 104-101 win over the Celtics at the Garden should be secondary to the toughness he showed in the face of attempted intimidation by one of the game's great intimidators, Kevin Garnett, who threw elbows and glares Gallinari's way.

    And rather than cower from it, Gallinari seemed to thrive in it.

    "When that happens, it's not good for the other team," said Gallinari, who scored 24 points in the second half to lead the Knicks (28-49).

    Garnett also had a minor exchange with David Lee later in the game, but it was clear the perennial All-Star was testing Gallinari, who was called for an offensive foul early in the third quarter and inadvertently hit Garnett in the back. A few plays later, Garnett responded with an elbow that caught Gallinari in the eye.

    "He was trying to play aggressive, he was trying to throw elbows on me that I wasn't really doing," Gallinari said. "He looked at me and he put an elbow on me, that's different."

    It wasn't anything that directly impacted the outcome of what had been a close game throughout, but Gallinari did have a hand in that when he banked a long jumper with 36.8 seconds left to give the Knicks a 102-101 lead. After a turnover by Paul Pierce, Lee then scored against Garnett to make it a three-point lead with 7.3 seconds left.

    On Boston's final possession, Rasheed Wallace could not get off a three-point attempt before the final buzzer. The Knicks were winners of consecutive games for only the third time in the 2010 calendar year. Ray Allen led the Celtics (48-29) with 17 points.

    Gallinari has had run-ins with opposing star players before. Garnett elbowed him last season in a game in Boston, which Gallinari remembered. Then there was the game late last season when Gallinari accidentally elbowed Dwyane Wade, which infuriated the Heat star. Last month, Gallinari and Carmelo Anthony exchanged trash talk as they went shot-for-shot in a wild third-quarter performance that had the Garden roaring and Anthony raving about Gallinari after the game.

    Notes & quotes: In a performance that came out of nowhere, D-League call-up Earl Barron, who was thrust into a starting role when Al Harrington (sore left ankle) was a late scratch, played 44 minutes and had 17 points and a career-best 18 rebounds. Lee had 13 points and 11 rebounds and struggled with his shot (6-for-16) . . . Nate Robinson had five points and five assists in 14 minutes in his first game at the Garden since he was traded on Feb. 18. The former Knicks fan favorite received a mostly polite applause before entering the game in the first quarter . . . Tracy McGrady sat out a second straight game with pain in his left thigh.

    He just needs to be fired up at all times. Gallo needs to find something inside to motivate himself for every game. To get angry. If he can do that, he can be a very good player.

    Gallo played well in one game. What he did, how he did it, and how soft the D was, when he did it, make his 31 points a very skewed product. I hope he plays well, so that we have a better chance of winning, but he has to do much more than receive a sh!tload of hype to gain my respect.

    Default Great game for Gallo and Duhon the Great

    Another great game for Gallo, altho that last shot was lucky as hell! Banking a 3? wow! The big **** has played amazingly well versus 2 of the best teams in the league (Denver, Boston), and I have to give it up to him, he's improving his game, when he's not chucking 3's the whole time. why was he sitting so long in the 4th?

    As many have asked (all season) why was Duhon starting and getting so many minutes? Granted, he played a decent game (for him), but why are TD's minutes getting pinched at this point in the season? WHY? TD and Power Serge are both more aggressive, and I'd rather see them play instead of the hound. This season is a goner, is Mike D'assholio trying to prove a point, that Duhound has got his swagger back, that he deserves to be resigned, that he, indeed, swallows (good one, nyk_nyk)?

    The Red Barron played an aggressive game, albeit his lack of blocked shots is questionable, but you can't fault the guy re his sweet midrange jumper, and 'bounding ability. Letting DLEE play his natural position for the first time in years(!) was perhaps the reason the Knicks were in this game the whole way thru? that and the **** rising to the occasion...

    Overall, I did not miss Al Brickington or McGrody one bit.
    The Knicks played like a team, and it was good to see.

    Do you realize that if you and Gallinari were in a room together,

    that in that room there would be one 21 year old Knick on the verge of stardom

    and one psycho angry racist internet madman?

    What an insignificant loser you truly are, Hit-from-the-back-Man. You follow me around this site, like a bum, begging for the change in my metaphorical pockets, not willing to take no for an answer. I will accede, however, to your cries for help and grace your cheap existence with my wisdom.

    So, you want me to reply this stupid comment, about Gallo being better than me, right? Fine: Gallo is an entertainer, and his stardom and talent, on its own, does not make him fundamentally better than me or any other person. It does not make him worse. What one would have to do is actually know more than what Gallo's gay groupies, like you, do.

    Why don't you answer this one, you inbred hick?

    Tell us: what do you have over Jerome James? He went to college, I can tell you haven't. He has lots of money, I can tell you don't. Oh, and you're a racist piece of trash that talks about "angry black men" and "spades." Answer: nothing.

    So... whether we look at superficial things, like stardom and money, or the inner qualities, e.g., wisdom, morals, that I believe make a person truly important to the world, you are a stagnant puddle of urine.

    And do yourself a favor and come out of the closet, LOCA. If you do, you won't be so grouchy all the time. Hit [from the back] man, if you do, you won't have to live a lie, in bathroom stalls, giving head and waking up in puddles of semen anymore. Wear your thongs, of all colors and stripes, with PRIDE, on Sunday family picnics, church, family reunions and the holidays!

    No matter what you decide to do, do not worry: I am not upset with you, despite your show of disrespect to one of your betters. You are a poor wretch, and I can only feel pity for you. People like me must look at people like you as our wards, our children, whom we must offer our charity to.

    If you ever need a couple of dollars, something to eat, bus fare, etc., feel free to ask.

    P.S. As your first step toward a better life, put down pipes of all kinds: crack, as well as meat.
