thank you 8s
How about the good old fashion... Whoever is feeling it that night.
But how about as a late game play or money play running a pick and roll with Gallo and Stat? It'd be similiar to what Orlando used to do with Turk and Howard.
im shock nobody is considering FG% and ability to draw a foul and knock down two free throws...i dont think gallo can draw a foul.. while stat and felton can create contact and finish.....
I think the exciting thing about this thread is that this is the first year in quite some time this would get so much consideration. We have a lot of choices to go to in the clutch now. I agree with last poster that Gallinari wouldn't be my top choice, but to have him as a backup option on a kickout isn't bad at all. If you just need 1 or 2 not 3 I am a big fan of going towards the rim too because you give yourself the chance of shooting free throws if you don't make your shot. I'd say running something with Felton and Amare for sure, but my list of guys I wouldn't cringe about in the final seconds include Stoudemire, Felton, Mason Jr, Gallinari, and to some extent Azabuike and Douglas too.
for a rookie (yeah, last year was really his first year), rather than a choker he seems pretty ****y to me (no homo)
When he becomes an All-Star these same haterz will say ****e like, "ah yea I saw it in em all along. I knew he'd be that good"... Right.
That moment right there on camera before the game against the Nuggets, was pivotal. He gave us a window into his mindset. That right there was a player accepting the challenge (in front of all of us if you were watching) of becoming more than what all of the Jimchiefs, Kiyamans and others on these boards thinks he can be. You gotta love to see that..

The Nuggets game he had is awesome, but what impressed me more was the season before when he was first put into the game against the Magic in the final few minutes. Got us a close without even being in that game until then.
We knew at the start of last season (2009-10) young players Gallo/Chandler
would be under contract for the 2010-11 season. Why werent these two
players given the oportunity to be the (first/second/third option) answer of
Gallo was suppose to be the player to take the last shot from the peremeter.
Chandler was suppose to be our strong slasher inside to take the last shot.
Several design-plays were suppose to be made for these two-players in the
2009-10 season to run at the end of each quarter of a game. If the design
play got broken-up the last shot is on the PG.
Practice makes perfect.
However, this was not done for reasons of poor coaching, with no
offensive design-play given during time-outs.
We dont know if Gallo or Chandler could handle the presure to out-wit
oponents defense which know they are the (Dirk/Carmelo) players to take
the last shot.
For the last two seasons Al Harrington and Duhon took 90% of the Knicks last shot.
Last season Amare/Felton/Mason were the 2nd or 3rd options on their
previous teams to take the last shot.
ray felton without a doubt...i wouldnt mind chandler as well, he been solid in da 4th....im surprised how many ppl said roger mason..why would u give da ball to someone who cant create a shot for himself and others??? Sorry if i burst ur bubble, roger mason is very much a spot up shooter
after his first full season. Gallo an All-Star? no time soon, maybe if he had a
better headcoach that didnt act like his Mama.
I do Hate all u dum dum Gallo-fans who was steady Hype-ing Gallo up to
be a super-star when u idiots never seen Gallo play basketball.
Gallo is not a NBA starter to receive 30+ minutes of playingtime (Godpapa).
Gallo is not the best shooter anyone ever seen (Larry Bird college years were
ten times more impressive than Gallo career bouncin a b.ball).
Gallo came to the Knicks as a H.S. team player with a few games in Italy
pro league (watching clips in Italy).
Gallo dum godfather coach did a wise move by keeping Gallo out his rookie
season to develope his upper/lower muscle strength to compete in the NBA.
But the same dum godfather coach showed all his inferior tactics as a
developing coach by turning Gallo into an individual player his first full season
in the NBA.
A 6.10 Gallo shouldve ran at least 100 "pick n role and give n go" design-
plays last season.
We had to wait untill T-Mac came on the Knicks to see the first "pick n role" with Gallo. Which also started Gallo shooting 2 point jumpshots rather than
70% of his shots from the 3 point line.
The last two seasons 85% of the Knicks 3-point shooting were not needed during those games.
are u a Knick-Fan or a Gallo? or Damntoni-fan?
I am a Knick-fan plus one of the fan-favorites of (work ethic)
David Lee & Nate Robinson.
The Knicks played the Denver Nuggets twice last season,
which were the Knicks 16th game and 71st game of the season.
In the Knicks 16th game vs Denver, Al Harrington scored 41 pts, 10 rbds,
while Gallo shot 20% fg for 4 pts, 4 rbds.
In the Knicks 71st game vs Denver, Gallo scored 28 pts, 5 rbds,
while in the same game Harrington scored 23 pts, 9 rbds.
Do the math on which Knick player were more impressive vs the Denver Nuggets last season?
which one was consistent and which one wasnt?
plus which player do u think the Denver Nuggets put extra defenders on in the
Knicks 71st game vs Denver? add T-Mac 30 minutes for 15 pts 2 ast, too.
Gallo-Fans had to wait for the Knicks 71st game of the season to have
something to hype up their player Gallo.
First season players Jennings/Tyreke Evans/Collison/and the Kings player
Casspi (Euro player) who I match up this season to compare vs Gallo,
all had early season impressive games vs contenders with super star players
plus they all had several consistent impresive games before their 71st game
of the season.
Amar'e and Toney D honestly. Toney is a stud with the ball and I hope he plays more than Felton
I agree that Gallo still has a lot to prove, but I do feel he's shown he can still be given the opportunity to take the last shot.
Let's not compare Gallo to Harrington. Harrington shot us out of many games.
