Both of these guys have the potential, which one you think will be the next Dirk? or is there another player that comes to mind?

I think Bargs might edge out Gallo just comparing the players, neither will be Dirk though. Just comparing them I like Bargs size, length, and scoring touch better. If Gallo can take that next step defensively he could be the more well rounded of the two. Both are fringe Allstar type players.

Neither. Dirk is actually a legitimate low post player who also happens to be a great outside shooter. Bargnani isn't the low post presence that Dirk is/can be. Bargs would be the closest though because of his position and he plays in the paint more than Gallo.

Neither will be nothing more than role players. If Bargs had a Lawson or Nene on his team.. he would be the far better player.

Gallo can be an all star caliber player. He can hit 3s, go inside, draw fouls, and make free throws. He could end up being an elite scorer.

Lol Bargnani already does that, and better than Gallo. He is just a bad rebounder, but actually an underrated shot blocker. Bargnani actually averages more FTA per game than Gallanari. Gallanari has just been overrated on this forum the past few weeks because he lit up the New York Defenseless Knicks and because Amare and Carmelo had bad games.

Apparently no one has watched Bargnani this year, he is no Dirk and never will be but role player? He was looking like an all-star until his injury.

Its funny how much people love to hate on Gallo.

People criticize his game and say things like all he is is a spot up shooter etc etc but they obviously haven't watched him play.

The guy is tough, he plays D, he guards 3 or 4 positions. He's 6'11" (and if u dont believe this look at any pic of him next to Amare. Gallo is taller), he rebounds, blocks shots, gets steals. Hes not turnover prone. He is a great shooter, but most importantly he can put it on the floor and drive to the basket. He can create for others as hes a good passer and he knows how to draw contact and get to the line. He also has very good athleticism and size for a pf and he can finish strong inside.

I mean, really he has the potential to be better than dirk. The people who hate on gallo are the same people who hated on dirk his entire career until he won last year, at which point he became a top 30 all time player in the eyes of most. He was the same player all along.

And if you don't believe Gallo has the potential to be as good as dirk just check their stats at age 22-23. They are comprable. Gallo is maybe 1 year of Dirk's pace, but the upward trend is similar. No one would have said dirk was a future champ/legend when he was 22, but it happened.

Here is Dirk's quote on Gallo from 2 years ago:

I think he's way ahead of my curve,' Nowitzki said of Gallinari. 'When I was 20, I was struggling so much. I watched a bunch of games this year, and he looks confident out there. He's knocking big shots down for them. I think he worked on his drive some, he's finishing in the paint some, and they're looking for him to get big baskets. So, definitely ahead of me.'

Yes, its 2 years later and he might not be an allstar this year, but he is well on his way. He is arguably the best player on one of the best teams in the league (yes I know, nene and lawson have something to say about that). If he continues to improve at the rate he has, he will be a perennial all star.

No one is going to sit here and say gallo is as good now as dirk was in his prime. what we are saying is that based on how good he is now, his ceiling and his rate of improvement, its not something you can count out. He may one day be as good as Dirk. He has the tools. Only time will tell.

This is the reason people like me did not want to include him in the melo trade. I was willing to let damn near everyone go, landry fields too, but the Knicks had all of the leverage and if they made Gallo untouchable, its likely melo and gallo would be knicks today and the knicks would probably be a top 4 team in the East.

I'm not sure you can really compare Gallo and Dirk. I get they're both tall and both are shooters, but I think the that's where the comparisons stop. Bagnanani and Dirk seems a bit more suitable as for what kind of players they are and what they're asked to do.

I will say Gallo has a pretty high ceiling imo. He's surprisingly fast for his size and his height/reach makes it hell for the person he's covering. He has the ability to cover a variety of positions. His driving game is arguably his best aspect of his game. And of course, he has the ability to knock down shots from any part of the floor. It's really just about doing it on a consistent basis now. He's been in a little of a funk this year, but appears to be coming out of it.

I didn't say that Gallo rebounds better than Bargnani. Where did you get that?

What I said was that he doesn't measure up to Dirk as a post player. Dirk is actually a very competent player in the post. Bargs doesn't measure up to Dirk in this regard. A lot of people think Dirk just pulls PFs out of the paint and shoots 3s. But he's also very competent in the paint. A lot of people overlook this.

AGREED.

and for those of you who claim gallo is better i suggest you check out bargs effiency numbers offensvily and defensivly THIS YEAR bargs has been better.

before he got injured he was lighting every one up. check his game logs from this season.

with that said. neither will ever be disco dirk.

How can you compare gallinari to bargnani? They're completely different players who play different positions. Comparing bargnani to dirk makes much more sense but bargnani will never be dirk imo.

And if gallinari played for the raps there's no doubt in my mind that his stats would be just as good or better than bargnanis.

02-03-2012, 06:32 PM
neither one of them, dirk is just too good. but they do have similarities.

Mirotic? idk about that yet, but he looks very promising, and is a beast in a very early raw age.
