Hmm.. I actually don't recall that much hype about either of them. That was supposed to be a pretty weak draft year and Bargnani was the number 1 pick which he never lived up to. If anything he was more hyped to be the next Dirk than anyone else. This year should be the biggest indicator of if hes improved or not as theres no Bosh to steal shots from him.
Gallo isn't very hyped at all in the league. Not many people hear about him other than NY. Hes viewed more like a Turkoglu or Stojakovic than a Dirk. His first year injuries held him back and hes still playing tentatively. Its still wayyy wayyy too early to judge anyone on this team. Youngins need a boost of confidence to get their game going. Hopefully Gallo finds his mojo sometime this season.
