NOTHING YOU SAY IS FACTUAL!!!!
All you do is whine and complain about player's playing time, and how certain players deserve X amount of playing time, when in reality you should be focusing on what ACTUALLY happened.
Fact. You cannot say with ANY certainty whatsoever that "any other player" playing 34 MPG would achieve the same stats as Gallo. You're literally spewing random bull**** out like it's your job. Who knows if Anthony Morrow, Roy Hibbert, or Jason Thompson would be averaging the same stats...because guess what??? THEY DIDN'T PLAY 34 minutes!!! That's the reality of the situation, that you so conveniently choose to neglect (as always).
Normally a Knick's fan would be excited to see one of their own being noted for their improvement this year, yet you scramble AGAIN for whiny bitchass excuses as to why Gallo is being credited.
Your logic is so flawed it's ridiculous. With your logic, I could legitimately say the only reason why Yi Jianlian doesn't average the same numbers as LeBron James is because he doesn't receive 44 mpg....He's a lottery pick right??? Can't I compare them because they both were lottery picks????
All of this nonsense is starting to get out of hand. You should be happy a player on our team was noted for his efforts this season. It shows that this season wasn't COMPLETELY worthless. But instead you choose to whine and make excuses, and for what? To discredit the growth of our team? To discredit the growth of a key part of our future? To cry and bitch about the past?
It's getting sad. The number of whiny, bitchy excuses you use to discredit every move by the Knick's in the right direction almost exceeds the stubbornness you possess.
Talk about a joke....
It's one thing to agree or disagree, but the annoying insults b/c a poster have a differ opinion than u......makes u an annoying poster.
Your boy Gallo is going through a developing stage from Euro B-Ball to NBA B-Ball.
Rookie Douglas and Jordan Hill were suppose to be going through a developing stage from college B-Ball to NBA B-Ball.
Here's where the developing process of Douglas, Hill, and Gallo, alongside of expiring-contract players went wrong......
Damntoni DNP SG-Larry Hughes at the start of the season to give Gallo 30 mpg. Wilson Chandler is not a SG on any team in the NBA!!!
PG-Douglas vs Duhon's poor performance
SG-Hughes and Nate were DNP
SF-Gallo vs Harrington & Chandler's dominating performance
PF-Hill vs Jefferies & Bender's lackadasical performance
C-Lee took it upon himself to develope his double-double skills for next season when he signs with the next-team, inwhich he wont be asked to play the center position.
Knick-fans were not allowed to see a lineup of "Darko & Lee" in the frontcourt with SF-Harrington or SF-Chandler. Or a "Hill & Lee" frontcourt with SF-Harrington or SF-Chandler.
All the Knicks expiring-contract players wanted to make the playoffs so their FA value would rise.....but Damntoni was only interested in one player on the Knicks this season "His Godson Gallo"...
The playing of DuDonkey was perplexing, tho until Serg I don't know...I'd still rather have seen Eddie there and have him dish for comedic sake. DuHound was a joke already.
I wanted N8 to start vs. DuHound.
The one bi blight I find with D'Antoni is his PUTRID handling of Darko...
Darko lit i up in every way WE most needed with the Wolves. And, this
meant we coulda had Lee play PF...sighs...
Fact. You said that players like Jason Thompson, Anthony Morrow, and Roy Hibbert would be averaging better numbers if they were given the same amounts of playing time as Gallo. Talk about favoritism....
Fact. How does that have any merit considering those players DIDN'T PLAY THAT AMOUNT OF PLAYING TIME. There is literally no way to tell what their numbers would have looked like. Heck, there could have been an injury or two that hindered their stats completely. Stating your opinion is one thing, but claiming it to be fact in an argumentative setting is flawed.
I wrote facts, you just chose to neglect them.
They say compromise is key, yet you can't cut the Knicks' management ANY slack. Even when a player of ours is ranked highly on a analysts list of sophomore players, you still find a way to argue your opinion about D'Antoni and about how Gallo is horrible.
When are you going to get it???? Our team is a work in progress. Barring the mistakes our management has made over the past decade, we have a bright future ahead of us with our cap space, Gallo, Will, and Douglas.
Your points about D'Antoni don't belong on this thread...yet you assert them wherever you post. Talk about annoying....
You've gone over it 100 times...we understand your point of view. We were open minded at first, but posting it on threads that have nothing to do with DNPing Larry Hughes and Jordan Hill is what I call "annoying".
Anyone that calls Wilson Chandler's performance at ANY point in his career "dominating" looses all credibility with me. Weren't you arguing that Will was a 3rd or 4th option earlier??? Will is damn good. But his stats back up the fact that he is in no way "dominant"."Chandler's dominating performance"
your very new here.....my Knick starting lineup 2 years ago in the 2008-9 season had Wilson Chandler in it as our upcoming future star SF.
Nate Robinson as our prime future 6th man combo-guard.
David Lee as our prime future starting PF.
Balkman Tazman was suppose to be our Big-SF (Birdman) off the bench to add depth in rebounding, screening, passing, and speed in our transition game.
What dont u understand.....Chandler is not a SG so he will not dominate at the SG position, especially when his handle is that of a SF. Just b/c Chandler can defend SG and PF does not make him one.
Gallo overall talent and trade-worth is no where as high as Harringtons or Chandler in the NBA. Get that through your thick head...
Further, you continue to ignore what I posted EARLIER (the on topic part) and instead chose to focus on something completely irrelevant to the big picture.
How are you going to respond to what I asserted? I'm still waiting for your reasoning behind calling people out for being off-topic, yet you talk about D'Antoni's playing time decisions and the PAST faults of the Knick's management in EVERY SINGLE thread, whether the thread be about Gallo, the Draft, or even the PLAYOFFS which you claim we would have made even though there is no facts that ASSURE that would be the case.
Last I checked, this thread was about Gallo's ACHIEVEMENT, in which he was named a top 10 sophomore in the NBA. Like i've stated earlier, a true Knick fan would be happy a player of ours is getting exposure and analysts around the league are taking notice to his growth and maturation, transitioning from Euroball to the NBA. No one here is trying to refute your playing time opinions (on this thread in particular...).
My problem with you is not your opinions on D'Antoni. You're entitled to what you think, and to some extent I agree that D'antoni made several errors with the handling of certain players (Darko, Hill, Douglas, Duhon), but c'mon man...really?? Are we really dwelling on what ALREADY occured? I mean things like the topic of this thread should EXCITE you!! Even if you're not a Gallo supporter, it should atleast comfort you to know that we have some TALENT on this squad. Whether it be Will, Gallo or Douglas, I'd be happy with the recognition of each of their growth, and I think everyone one here would agree with me on that.
I'm sure you have basketball knowledge, but you're denying yourself the ability to showcase it because you're caught up on this playing time issue that already occurred. Our season is over!! We're going to have all new players in the locker room of MSG next season. Things like this shouldn't upset you. With the new squad next year, we'll be shifting things around plenty. Who knows if Chandler will be playing SG still, or if Lee is even back at all. That all remains to be seen.
In the meantime, I don't mean to be a hater or anything, it's just irritating to find you complaining about irrelevant, off-topic issues in EVERY single thread I look through. I'm sure you have more to say than just simply bashing on Gallo and Mike D.
