Poll: Why Gallo is so polarized?


I haven't seen such a polarizing player for a while now.  It has been bugging me for a while and it doesn't make a lot of sense to me.  A LOT of people think he plays well, yet A LOT of people think otherwise.  Each side has its points but really really weird that he is this polarizing figure.  Even David Lee is not this polarized.  Is it a stereo type that white player can't D or just Gallo case?  I don't know if race preference or not? 

I do think it's a preference of  ethnic groups play role this in polarizing matter.  I am creating a poll to help answer my question, if you have time please vote.  Also Seth and everyone , I know when it come to race it's a sensitive issue, so if you offended please let me know and I will delete this post.  My only intention is to try to figure out why he is so polarized and I think a certain ethnic group's preference in playing style that lead to such polarizing effect.  No ill intention here.

Udates:  As of 2/4/11 results.  OTHER has the highest percentage a near perfect.  I wonder how many  in OTHER are Italian.  I think we can conclude that race has little to do with liking Gallo or not.  Again, please do not take this as a racist issue, but rather just a preference of certain ethnic groups over playing style.

Caucasian: 92.47%

Other:  97.44%
