Gallo is Concerned But Not Worried
Danilo Galinari is a shooter and he is not concerned about his current 3-13 shooting slump. "I’m not worried," he said. "Sometimes that happens . . . but that’s not a problem." In all fairness, this is only a pre-season game and thirteen shots in two games is nothing. Shooters shoot their way out of slumps and 13 shots in two games is ridiculously low for a “star-in-waiting.”
According to Marc Berman, Galinari was very upset about how he played. I like that attitude. Remember, you cannot measure how much heart can improve, enhance or transcend ability.
After Friday’s ugly 96-84 loss in Boston, Gallinari’s body language in the locker room spoke volumes. At his locker, he was cloaked in a black sweatjacket, hood pulled over his head. He snuck out of the locker room as reporters spoke to Lee. The writers caught up with Gallinari outside. The Italian Stallion seemed more upset than at any point during his pain-ridden rookie year.
Some are starting to blame Gallo’s legs for the shooting woes, but common sense does indicate that the combination of conditioning and recent major back surgery will slow whatever Galinari’s progress will be.
It’s not time to panic yet. After all remember how poorly Crawford started the preseason last year. Craw was using hte season to get a feel for the game in D’Antoni’s system and eventually he and ZBo caught on. So it is a little early to press that non-functioning eject button.
