Knicks draft a rooster
...that's Danilo Gallinari, whom they selected with their first-round pick (6th overall,) and is nicknamed "The Rooster." Knicks fans obviously weren't too thrilled about this, booing him heavily. I think mostly because Frederick Weis is still fresh in their memory. I personally wasn't really happy with this either, but I'm hoping he will prove me wrong and be the hustling, point-scoring distributer that people say he is. Mike D'Antoni made Leandro Barbosa and Boris Diaw into good NBA players, so maybe he can do the same with Gallinari. The Knicks are so bad, though, that one guy won't be enough to make them better. Hopefully there is some dealing ahead for the 'Bockers tonight.
