Gallo has shot only 39.5% since joining the Nuggets. The league average over that time is over 45% fgp. If Gallo is our "best shooter" then we are in real trouble.
Many Nuggets fans believe that Gallo's poor shooting is uncharacteristic and some sort of aberration. They keep waiting for him to break out of this funk. Expecting that he will suddenly snap out of it when really that is just who he is.
I have addressed that particular statement on champ in the bengals/broncos game thread so I'll leave it at that.
no way gallo for AAA. Gallo will be fine. He is averaging 12 and 7 rebounds. If he gets that first number to around 16-18 then it will be great. The starting unit (mostly the sg/sf) are still getting used to each other. Even if Gallo has a "break out" year I still don't think he should be the #1 guy. That should always be Ty. Ty and not Gallo or Iggy. Maybe Iggy/Gallo can take those last shots but Ty needs to be the enforcer offensively.
crazy but maybe Gallo needs a benching lol. Start Chandler when he gets back for a few games!
Bottom line is we traded a top 5 NBA star for some guys who have injury history and potential. I dont care about guys like anthony randolph cause they wont do anything in the league anyways except ride the bench.
Chandler has played like 5 games in a nugget uniform since getting here so again until he shows his injury has fully recovered and he can play without getting injured I rest my case.
Nuggets best five players are: 1.) Ty Lawson (drafted) 2. Gallo (big piece in melo trade) 3. Mcgee (Traded nene....not part of melo deal 4.) Faried (once again drafted) 5. Iggy (traded AAA and harrington...not part of melo deal). I dont buy the wilson chandler hype. Jordan hamilton has potential but Karl never plays him so whats the point?
So out of the top 5 nugget players only 1 came from the melo deal. Iggy was not part of the deal. Afflalo and harrington were on the team while melo was here.
Edit: I forgot andre miller. He is a nice player and a Karl favorite but hes not youthful like Raymond Felton. Longterm we lost on trading felton.
At the end of the day we have trade assets and not alot of star talent. Like some posters have said we need to package some of this unnecessary depth for a true star like Josh Smith. Oh and Gallanari has a way higher ceiling then afflalo so that would be another fail move. Nuggets shooting would tank even more.

i dont know what to do with gallo... it seems like every year we wait for him to do something, but he hasnt so far. he has just been miserable to watch this year, and if it continues he definately should find his way to the bench.
afflalo is a career 40% 3 point shooter. gallo is a career 36% 3 point shooter so in that area its an upgrade
Orlando would do that trade fast in my opinion but the Nuggets should not. Gallo and Wilson are much better players than they have shown because of injury. For the first 1-2 months of last season Gallo looked like a guy who could be an all star. Sell high not low.
I'm always happy to discuss anything from hoops, to hockey, to reality TV with anyone that is polite regardless of their opinion. With that said if you are disrespectful, dishonest, or an extremist type poster I may not waste my time replying to you.
No way I would trade Gallo for AAA. I am a big AAA fan but Gallo has more to his game than AAA. And he IS the best shooter on the Nuggets. That's not my opinion, thats the opinion of the coaches and players. I think they know what they are talking about since they work/practice/play with him almost every day.
While he hasn't produced it on the court so far this year, I would think twice before having a knee jerk reaction. Gallo is not just a shooter but also a playmaker.
The Nuggets are a better team with Gallo on the roster. Period.
He will produce.
Ya be a little patient guys gallo will make those shots. It has only been the fourth game so it doesnt mean he will suck for the rest of the season. Don't pull a mike brown.
As for the trade we have been.way better without melo. Not once did we ever challenge the lakers to a 7 game series. Felton trade was bad??????? Felton sucked in portland and Dre has been productive with us. Dont forget, that trade was made so that ty could have full reign with this team. The hype on WC Is just him being a productive 6th man and nothing else. We have been unfortunate with him playing ij China andbthen getting injured as soon as he came back.
