He's only going to be a key contributor if he plays the right game. We don't need him stagnating ball movement at the start of games. The fundamental triple threat has been lost on Gallo. He's not even a single threat ATM.
He looks slower, less confident and worse on defence this year. That's a lot to work on. Never mind, obviously, his rude shooting and shot selection.
Give him one more week, and if he hasn't brought himself back, he's not worth the experimentation. One and a half years of that is enough. I doubt any other coach would put up with a starter coming in to the season so out of sync.
I agree that we need his contribution. Right now, however, I'm more looking forward to AR coming back than holding out any hope for Gallo who lost his game in an absentee off-season.
I don't think that's unreasonable.
