I said the above in the Chandler Bing voice. no? you don't get it? It's like all sarcastic and stuff. oh whatever. lets just pretend that never happened.
Okay, so you know how people always get down on gallo for shooting threes. and they say he should be driving more and doing other things more. Well, D'antoni had some pretty interesting thoughts on that. Read on, uglies.
"You don't want to get him out of what he does best, so there's a fine line there," D'Antoni said. "I don't think anyone ever said to Reggie Miller, 'We really want to see you drive more.' So he's got to find his game, and he needs to rebound, play defense, run the floor, and he's doing some pick-and-rolls that he's pretty good at.
"So the biggest flaw he has now is he doesn't post up real well, and we would love for him to be able to post up. But we're not going to take three months to teach him. He's going to have to do that in practice, and little by little, once he gives us confidence he can do that, then obviously we'll call those plays and get him in the post more.
"He's 22, so he'll develop that. I just don't want everyone [to say], 'You've got to do more than just shoot.' Now he's not thinking about shooting, he's thinking about putting the ball on the floor. And now you have -- as you say in Italian, he's not fish, he's not meat, you don't know what he is. He's got to have a game, and his game right now is catch-and-shoot, and catch-and-rip if they're out on him."
