Imagine the threads had:

Oh, the humanity.
It's okay. Gallo got hurt again and Melo's here playing. Still. The trade has not yet been rescinded, three years later.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

funny how no one really cares that Wilson Chandler is gone too, or that Timofey Mozgov was included in the trade. Well, pause, Gallo is a good lookin white dude

when they were both knicks there were endless arguments about the relative merits of chandler and gallinari. i always believed that gallinari would end up being considered the more valuable starter because he is more skilled on both ends of the court. i like chandler a lot but he looked a little overwhelmed this postseason. both he and brewer do not have the kind of games that translate well in playoff competition unless they are coming off the bench for the majority of their minutes. in the playoffs the value of gallinari is his ability to get to the line, slowing the game down against teams like the warriors. he also makes better decisions with the ball than chandler and brewer. chandler is a bit too shot-happy compared to gallinari, which also drives down his value in the playoffs.

is gallinari good looking? i had not noticed but thanks for pointing that out

I do understand to some extent why posters here have a bone to pick for those who champion Gallo. Yeah the Nuggets missed Gallo's presence this playoffs but ultimately Denver lost because of their lack of defending GSW's back court and unless you truly feel Gallo could have done that whether individually or through team defense, you're fooling yourself.


Here's what's more intriguing IMO which is why I can't stand when too many concessions are made for Gallo. If you look at last yrs playoffs, you know the one in which the Nuggets played the Lakers in the first round you'll notice Chandler didn't play 1 game. Barely heard a peep of his absence from the Gallo crowd. You say Gallo's game is built for the playoffs...well look at his numbers in that series and you'll see they weren't any better than Chandler's against GSW.


Numbers don't lie...matter of fact Gallo had 2 completely dud performances

http://espn.go.com/nba/player/gamelog/_/id/3428/year/2012/danilo-gallinari Gallo's numbers that series, pretty terrible to say the least


I think what hurts many posters arguments, is when they let their personal feelings for a player get in the way of making objective posts.


+1
3G4G, rapidly moving up the UK rationality meter.

Waits to see someone applaud this post.

Probably more applicable to those who champion Melo as his tenure of failure is much greater than Gallo's. Once again Gallo is not a bad player but fans here continue to inaccurately assess players no matter who they are. Even Lebron is inaccurately assessed at times.

This seems like a distraction. Who builds up Gallo ridiculously? I'll grant you that TKF is generous towards Gallo but does anyone else here?

Not to defend Gallo who really didn't play as good as he could, but there was nobody on the level of Artest's defensive intensity on the warriors roster this year.
Unfortunately for Gallinari, he struggles a lot against physical defenders like Artest, especially when they're allowed to rough him up a little. Gallo did have really good games against the Warriors during the season and posed heavy matchup issues to GS.

Him being there during the GSW series would have helped a lot, as well as David Lee not being hurt as it pushed the Warriors into playing a guard heavy lineup to which Georges Karl didn't adjust at all.
The Nuggets were also really bad at defending the 3pts shot and Curry blossomed during that series before tweaking his ankle against the spurs. Perfect storm.

Just to add a few nuances to your post.


Gallo also had a couple good games against the Lakers this year...so your Artest excuse doesn't totally fly. Had Gallo been healthy results would have been the same but maybe Gallo plays better than he did last playoffs. It would have been small vs big no matter how you slice it unless David Lee plays. That's about it.
