Danilo Gallinari sat down with CBS4 in Denver to talk about his recent knee injury which resulted in a torn ACL and long upcoming recovery for the Denver Nuggets forward. Gallo says he can’t tolerate watching the replay, but recalls his ankle being stuck to the floor and his knee “just went somewhere else” on the play that ended his 2012-2013 season on April 4. After preliminary tests, Gallinari says he knew it was a serious injury because his left knee was “just dancing.” In good spirits, the Nuggets forward says he was more angry than upset and “still wants to punch somebody in the face”, and added “I don’t know who – but I want to punch somebody and make somebody suffer.” beyondthebuzzer.com

I was very happy to make the playoffs in NBA. I felt that this was the right season. Sportando
