Danilo Gallinari Says He’s 100% Healthy

by September 16, 2009

Gallo claims to want the pressure that comes with playing in New York: “Camp opens in two weeks at Skidmore College in Saratoga. A season ago Gallinari spent the entire time there on the sidelines, riding a stationary bike and stretching. And immediately the word ‘bust’ was whispered. It grew a little louder when Eric Gordon, another player on the Knick radar at No. 6 who eventually landed with the Clippers, had a solid rookie season. Gallinari is aware of it all. ‘I feel people want to see something from me,’ he admitted. ‘I will tell you,’ he later added, ‘I want to see the expectations. I want to feel the pressure because that’s what makes you a really good player.'”
