Danilo Gallinari, Denver Nuggets: Maybe the greater disappointment here doesnít rest with Gallinari, but with our assumptions of linear development. He began his career as a decent scorer who could both shoot from the outside and get to the rim, all while defending with a plucky enthusiasm (even if not with totally sound fundamentals). His production as a sophomore with the Knicks in 2009-10 suggested a talented shot creator with a versatile game, and to some extent that still applies. But even after that promising start, Gallinariís shooting percentages never quite came around, and his scoring has increased only marginally over the course of his career. This season in Denver seemed like a great opportunity for Gallinari to not only command serious minutes but also benefit from the playmaking of both an improving Ty Lawson and the imported Andre Iguodala. That hasnít quite worked out, and Gallinari has posted career-worst shooting percentages (39.1 from the field, 31.7 from long distance) while otherwise maintaining his static ó and decent, really ó levels of production.
