March 19, 2013 Updates

After the tough win against the Chicago Bulls, Danilo Gallinari in an interview with Gazzetta.it confirmed that he will be with the Italian National Team at Eurobasket 2013 in Slovenia. Il Gallo had a meeting in USA with Gianni Petrucci, new president of the Italian Federation and Simone Pianigiani, coach of the National Team. "We have talked about National Team. It was great to have both of them here in America. I gave them my availability for the National Team this summer" said Gallinari. Sportando

The hard contact from Dunleavy came before Gallinari entered the restricted area, so he flipped up a hook shot over his right shoulder as he came crashing back to the court. The foul was never in doubt but the shot surely was, as it kissed high off the backboard, rolled all the way around the rim, hit off the backboard again, and then finally spun in off the rim. The Nuggets television broadcasters predictably lost their marbles, dubbing Gallinari’s miracle the “shot of the century” and the “shot of the year.” By hitting the basket, Gallinari also pushed the Nuggets to 110 points, triggering a promotion in which fans can purchase four tacos for $1 dollar at Taco Bell on Wednesday. “They loved it for the tacos, I think,” Gallinari said of his shot, during a televised postgame interview. “It was a good shot, an important shot.” SI.com

Asked which of his players he deems worthy for consideration, Karl paused for a second. "That would be really difficult to say," Karl said. "I'd probably say Andre Miller. From the standpoint of efficient minutes, Andre's given us as efficient minutes as anybody. But I think Ty (Lawson) and (Andre Iguodala) and (Danilo Gallinari) all have had moments. And I'm excited, because I think they all are getting stronger and more confident, and their consistency is getting at a higher level. But because of their up-and-down moments, it's going to be difficult for them to get any recognition." Denver Post

Last season, getting hurt, well, hurt Danilo Gallinari’s growth as a player. Now he’s injured again, although it might not be serious. Gallo has a left ankle injury and is day-to-day, heading into Wednesday’s season opener at Philadelphia. “I don’t know what exactly happened,” Nuggets coach George Karl said. “I know he took himself out of practice.” Denver Post

“It’s tough for European players to go to the NBA, because you have to earn your respect,” he said. “They don’t respect you at the beginning. They say, ‘Who is this guy? He’s coming here to get our jobs.’ So you’ve got to earn the respect. From the first practice, they’re going to hit you, and do everything to make you sit on the bench (so they can) play. That’s normal. NBCSports.com

Danilo Gallinari: "“In my case, it was very funny because when I was in Europe, I was playing in a system where you do this, (then) you do this, and (then) you do your thing. You go in and out of the things that you do better. When I got to the states I was playing for Mike D’Antoni, and in our offensive system, every ball you catch, you’ve got to either shoot it, or do something. You’ve got to make things happen".
