I went to the NBA Store on 5th ave and they didn't have Gallo jerseys...They had like 20 Robinson, 10 Lee, 4 chandlers, and one harrington...Those bastards....
Meanwhile they sell Eddie House jerseys....
JayJ44-- The videos where nice. But I would like to see all that against NBA level talent, not against the guys the dream team blew out by 40. When you talk about points in the paint, I am talking about legit post moves, not breakaway dunks and slow drive, double clutches into the lane that decent highschool players would swat into the cheap seats. True Gallo is only 19, but do you spend a lottery pick on this guy. Hmmm.....
It's a professional league, which is much more physical than the NBA today (as metro stated several times).
You do realize the dream team was 17 years ago, right? International ball has come along way since then.
I seriously have forgotten more about basketball
We know man, we know.
The dream team is still alive? They haven't been together since the 90's...USA has the best basketball in the world, but the dream team is a thing of the past, once again you're wrong.
Since when team USA played Euroleague teams? I thought they played against FIBA teams...I don't know, you tell me about that one genius.
Keep "Hmming" shows how much you really know, when sadly all this time on this site you failed to show anything here, seriously.
Where are 90% of the players coming from???? US college basketball. Most Euroleague players drafted are listed as "projects." That means not ready to play in the NBA. Does that sound like a "better" more "physical" league??? Maybe to you, but not to NBA scouts. Take are Gallo for an example. He was a "star" in the Euroleagues, but not even physically ready to play in the NBA until the season was half over. And still yet D'antoni won't play him night in and night out for fear he will get hurt. By the way David Thorpe for Scout's Inc. just graded out the top NBA rookies for ESPN.com and Gallo wasn't in the top 20 and we took him at the 6th pick. Overvalued to be sure. The only reason you are seeing so many teams give these Europlayers a shot is thier skin color. U.S. white kids are playing other sports and Stern isn't gonna try to sell an all-black league to mostly white corporate sponsers and ticket buyers. It sure isn't about talent. Do yourself a favor and watch March Madness this year and you will see the future NBA stars.
Gallo wasn't physically ready to play, because he was injured. That has nothing to do with the physicality of either league. Greg Oden wasn't physically ready to play in the NBA his entire rookie year. Does that mean anything about the NCAA? Of course not.
D'antoni has been playing him night in and night out. And if he does sit out, it's not for fear of getting hurt. It's just him getting worked into the rotation and dealing with his youth.
Gallo had an unfortunate injury in the beginning of the year. Of course he's not going to be in the rookie rankings. His development was held back for half a season. Who cares about rookie rankings anyway?
So now teams are drafting people purely based on race? You think there's some sort of conspiracy where David Stern is making teams draft white kids over black kids? That's just retarded.
Michael Jordan even comentated on race in the league before.
Black players come before white players.
He said he'd know guys, black and white, who were of the same ability, but the black guys always got drafted or signed because of a bias toward black players.
This is what we were seeing a few years ago when everyone was drafting euro players like crazy. It was the new trend. Everyone wanted a Dirk or Manu or Tony Parker.
Happens. Different trends create different inequalities.
You think professional sports is like any other work place? If there is any bias when drafting players, it's against euro players. Idiots like you think every euro player is Darko Millicic.
What's up with danilo only playing single digit minutes last game? he needs to play consistent minutes so that he can keep on improving his game. D'antoni, WTF!?!?!
maybe he is seeing him for what he really is.. a good shooting, but a sloow, non-defense playing white boy..
just thinking outloud...
