The Danilo Gallinari Comparison's To Bargnani Are Very Unfair To Danilo

This is rediculous, Danilo is a small forward and he's been in the Italian League for 3 years since he was 16 and this year is averaging 21 Points and 6 Rebounds and like 3 Assists.

Bargnani when he was drafted 1st overall was only in his 1st year as pro in The Italian League and only averaged 13 points, also he was the 3rd opition not the 2nd or the 1st. Gillinari is the first opition and he has better rebounding numbers than Bargnani in Italy lol so consider that.

Plus Bargnani is a Power Forward not a Center and big man take a long time to develop. In his first 2 games in his 2nd season with the raps he averaged 21 Points because he played Power Forward, when they switched him to Centre That's when everythign crumbled. Anyways it takes a tole on him to guard guys way stronger than him. On the offensive end he take good shots most of the time but can't hit them consistently. Plus his form is soo off on the 3 it's to high sometimes and to flat sometimes. When he has a high arch it goes in he tries to throw it in with a shooting motion.

The Raptors are trying to make him to much of somethign he's not a rebounder and a defender. They aren't playing to his strengths and instead palying on his weaknesses. They need to let him play and i guarantee when he has a lot of confidence he will play defence with passion. Also when he makes one mistake Sam Mitchell takes him out. Sam Mitchell is also a really bad coach he can't motivate his players.

Danilo is 6'9, Bargs is 7 feet. Bargs is extremely mobile for his size, what does Danilo do to make up for his lack of height? He isnt going to start at the extremely tough and crowded 4 position in the NBA if he doesnt have extremely fluid great moves in the midrange or post area and if he cant rebound well enough, since the 4 position is now turning into what the center position used to be, where the scoring comes from now on teams downlow. Can Danilo realistically put up 18+9 at the PF position in the NBA? If not then why the hell is he in the lottery? He isnt quick enough to be a sf no?

I havent seen him that much, but he looks like a strong and fast enough SF to me.

Gilinari is very strong according and he weighs more than Bargnani and he sin't even a centre so you can already tell. Also in eurpe he ran a 3.02 which is comparable ro Eric Gordon 3.01 and Alexander 2.99 So he's quick and as for his size he sin't a centre he's a small forward and small forwards like Jamrio Moon is 6.6-6-7 so he's tallerr than him so what size are you talking about ?

Gilinari is a Small Forward and he has more strength than Bargani and weighs more than Bargnani and his standing reach is comaprable to a person with 6-10-11 size and his wingspan is the size of a seven fotter ? so he can play Power Forward with eaase and he is an accomplished socrrer 21 points ? and have you seen him run the floow he runs the floor like a guard?

Those videos arent impressive. Nothing he does jumps out at you, and his handle and shot creativity is pretty weak. What does he do that screams to you 'lotto pick'? He can jump decent, shoot decent, handle is average at best, and hes got good bball IQ but doesnt have much creativity. He screams role player IMO.

that video is pretty bad, I have seeing some others where he looks much better, not only doing easy alley-hoops. The guy is strong and fast for sure, can shoot and has its pretty intelligent. I think he can do some good things. A starter for sure. He could be an improvement over Moon IMO.

I think itd be a very good wager to bet he doesnt have as good of a season as Moon did. I dont think theres a shot in hell hes near as efficient and has near the impact Moon did, not to mention the numbers(8+6 on 48%+a block or so).

Well, maybe on the Knicks he might put up better scoring numbers by a bit if hes lucky but thats it IMO.

Wow I Think You Are Badly Mistaken This Vidoe That I Gave You A Link For Is When He Was 16 He has 3 years More Experience So For 16 That Blows You're Mind Away And One Person Even Said He Is A Hedo At Best Which Is A 20 Point Scorer So That Is Very Good For A 7-8 Pick And He is Saying That He Is Hedo at 16 Imagine Who He Can He Know With His Skills Polished And A Lot Better.

How can you compare Bargs and Danilo? They play different position, different natural skill set, body type...the only reason there are comparisons is because there both Italian...Gallinari is a solid prospect, i agree his ceiling is Hedo like, but his first 2 years are going to be a struggle, against SF's he's going to have to learn how to get his shot off, took hedo awhile too

I think Danilo is pretty good actually. He has the power to improve himself to higher levels very quickly, he is ambitious, no one at 18 has the leadership and the basketball IQ he has. He has the skill to take fouls and the court view of a point guard.

To people who insult Bargnani, he is not all that bad alright? He's a young guy who got the pressure of being picked 1st overall as a foreign player and is miss-used. I am sure he will improve more than you think he will.

I'm getting there...the idea of Anderson Varejoa in a 7 footers body fits our needs perfectly

high energy, highly athletic type, has the exact same kind of raw offense running completely on put backs, and lay-ups, Lopez has a higher ceiling, but i think hes going to be not much more than a what you see kind of guy...i would compare him to varejao, or noah type
