It was not a good night defensively for Mr. Erden, to say the least:

Who doesn’t ?
Semih is playing with a shoulder injury that requires surgery…he’s actually not a bad option off the bench…great dunk though
poor kid he got drafted to a great team and has to try and fill shaqs shoes. hes a very good player just had a bad night… ON NATIONAL TV
LIFE dunks on Semih Erden
He is in the NBA though…guess Semih Erden dunks on me

What’s missing here is all the New York fans who HATED Gallinari especially earlier in the year. This guy is a serious talent, and while his game lacks a few things so far… he seems to have the body and skill level to work on all flaws.
He can shoot 3′s, is 6’10, easily gets to the basket, and if not finishing in a few games he’s shown that he can draw fouls at will. He’s gotta rebound better, play any defense, and not have moments where he looks seriously lost like he hasn’t been on a court. Youtube shows how awesome he is…
Gallo has really improved. When he first got there he just looked to shoot the 3, but now he looks to drive more than shoot. That dunk shocked me.
dude can surprise ppl with his hops sometimes.. iv liked his game (besides his d) from day one.. dude would be a great piece on a contender
There there Semih, Just embrace his ownage!!!
The scouts in denver must be drooling lol
Gallinari is a fan favorite. Great dunk!
Gallo’s a pretty good defender. People think he can’t play D because he’s a Euro. Look at his devensive stats on basketballreference.com. Pretty good for a “European”. Not saying he’s a lockdown defender. But he’s decent.
Gotta say Gallo has talent. He still settles too often for that jumper, but when he puts it on the floor and gets to the rim, he’s really good for a big dude. He needs to collect some Dirk tapes and lock himself in the film room and gym this summer.
how is this “on” erden? also, even howard couldnt have blocked this.
Erden was key on the turkish team that made it to the WBC finals, he played very well in that tournament, lots of talent and heart. Wish he wasn’t injured so he could use the increased PT.
Nice dunk by Gallo though.
Oh, and the “Europeans” play better D on average than players in the L, just not those that the L scouts and drafts, ahem, if u get my drift…
I didn’t know galo had it in him.Dude surprised me with that dunk and that ill off balance on the wrong foot left handed layup with the foul. L
Nice dunk and Gallo definitely looks like a more complete player this year. But flushing on an injured Turkish rookie isn’t going to get you on a poster. Pretty sure he won’t be dunking on Perkins, Shaq or JOneal…
Nice dunk by Gallinari. But, those three consecutive bricks from the free throw line earlier in the game? Not so much.
