Gallo was a fine defender before he lost all his mobility, now he very much sucks

He was pretty good defensively last year by most metrics iirc.

For the upcoming season at Maccabi he will need to prove that his shooting is legit, that’s the primary offensive skillset the NBA will want to see from him.


Ok just found out Gallo was Italian league mvp at 19 :o His stats were pretty good in Euroleague too, damn, I had no idea. Makes much more sense than he went 6 in such a draft now, I always thought that was too high.

Gallinari was an incredible prospect, his career was just ruined by injuries ever since he played in the 2008 Summer League.

Second best Euro prospect after Luka in the last 15 years imo.

I loved Gallo in Milan, I think Rubio was clear number 2 if we are talking about pure prospect, but Gallo is up there with Valanciunas, Kanter and Saric. But I am talking about mainstream point of view, obviously we had few underdogs that came out of complete obscurity and surpassed everyone - Giannis and Jokic.
