“A tutto motore”

Finally Pain Free, It's "Full Engine" For Gallinari
by Ricky Henne, nyknicks.com

Posted Sept 18 2009, 12:00 p.m.


As the weeks tick away to the start of a new season of New York Knicks basketball, NYKnicks.com will sit down with the players, coaches and others closely a.ssociated with the team to discuss their thoughts on the outlook for 2009-10.
We continue the series with sophomore star Danilo Gallinari, the Italian sensation who took The Garden by storm and won over the hearts of Knicks fans during his abbreviated rookie campaign.

NYKnicks.com: So first things first, how’s your back?

Danilo Gallinari: It’s good. I feel good and I am able to do anything I want. I have no limitations. Like I said earlier, it is impossible to count how many times I am asked about it (laughs). But it shows people care, so it is ok.

NYKnicks.com: So what’s the biggest difference for you out on the court now that you feel healthy?

Gallinari: I mean, when you play thinking about this pain and are concentrating just on how much it hurts, it is tough. It is nice to be able to concentrate on just playing basketball and being around my teammates. Last year, I would make a play and I would feel a lot of pain. I would finish a play and be like, ‘Oh this hurts. I am in pain.’ But now, I don’t feel that way at all. I don’t even think about it.

NYKnicks.com: What’s your mindset like going into this year?

Gallinari: I think that I have more experience, so I know probably how to handle more situations, like all these games and the travel and other things that were a bit different.

NYKnicks.com: It is only your second season, but big things are expected out of you now that you are healthy. Do you see yourself as a leader?

Gallinari: Yes. Definitely. Every team I have played on, I have always been a leader. It is how I know to play and I want to be important on this team too. I want to be in that role and feel that pressure, because I feel like when you feel pressure you do your best.

NYKnicks.com: Are you expecting to start this year?

Gallinari: I don’t know. We’ll see. I will practice as hard as I can and show to coach that I am ready, but it is up to him. Either way I will contribute and play my hardest and do things to help the Knicks when I am on the court.

NYKnicks.com: Is there anything in particular you are trying to improve?

Gallinari: Everything. I am not working on any one thing, but my game as a whole.

NYKnicks.com: What is your favorite part of being in the NBA?

Gallinari: The NBA! ( laughs) I like everything about it. It is the best basketball in the world. The skill level is the best. The atmosphere. The fans. The players. It is all great.

NYKnicks.com: What was the highlight of your year last year?

Gallinari: Probably against Atlanta. I played a lot of minutes, played really well and hit some big shots.

NYKnicks.com: You were a rookie last year. What kind of advice are you giving Jordan (Hill) and Toney (Douglas)?

Gallinari: I am telling them to compete. They need to concentrate all the time. Concentrate on every practice and concentrate on being healthy and helping the team. They are good players. They have a good future here.

NYKnicks.com: Asides from basketball and getting ready for the season, how was your summer? Any highlights you care to share?

Gallinari: It was nice. I spent time here in New York and also in Italy. When I was Italy, I tried to stay away from basketball. When I was on vacation, I tried to clear my mind and stay away from everything. I wanted focus on relaxing and spending time with my family. It is important to keep a good balance.

NYKnicks.com: You also had a pretty big birthday. How does it feel to be 21? How did you celebrate?

Gallinari: (laughs) It’s good. It’s a good age. I was in Italy with my family so I celebrated with them and enjoyed it. It is not a big deal like it is in America to be 21, but it is a good age and I had a very good birthday.

NYKnicks.com: So when did you get back from being over there?

Gallinari: About two weeks ago.

NYKnicks.com: And you have just been up at the training center working out?

Gallinari: Yup.

NYKnicks.com: Have you seen (President of Basketball Operations) Donnie Walsh or (Head Coach) Mike D’Antoni?

Gallinari: Yeah, they are telling me I look good.

NYKnicks.com: Now that we are a couple weeks away from the season starting, is there any game that you are looking forward to more than the others?

Gallinari: No, not at all. Every game is different, but every game is the same. Every one is just as important as the next.

NYKnicks.com: What is the biggest difference between where the team ended last season and where you are going to begin this year?

Gallinari: Last year there were a lot of changes and it took a while for us to come together. This year, we are all on the same page. We know each other better and are starting the training camp already knowing each other.

NYKnicks.com: So, as always, we like to finish by giving you a chance to tell the fans anything you want. What do you want to tell them?

Gallinari: In Italy this summer, the message of the Italian summer was “A tutto motore”. It means “full engine” like going ahead full speed. So “full engine”. Everybody “full engine” and let’s get ready for the season.

For what its worth....

Knicks will sign Nate Robinson to one-year deal
September 23, 2009
By ALAN HAHN

The Knicks appear to have come to terms with at least one of their two restricted free agents less than a week before training camp opens in Saratoga.

Nate Robinson has accepted a one-year contract offer, a source told Newsday Wednesday morning. The contract is for more than Robinson's qualifying offer of $2.9 million and will include performance bonuses. Because it is a one-year deal, Robinson has a right to veto any trade.

The team is currently still in negotiations with its other restricted free agent, David Lee, who is also expected to take a one-year deal for above his qualifying offer of $2.6 million.

The 5-9 Robinson, who averaged a career-best 17.2 points per game last season and saw his popularity rise around the NBA after he captured his second Slam Dunk title, told Knicks president Donnie Walsh that he wanted to remain in New York and had no interest in seeking offer sheets from other teams. As a restricted free agent, the Knicks would have had seven days to match any offer made to Robinson.

He will be an unrestricted free agent next summer, but his salary will still have some impact on the Knicks' salary cap budget in 2010 because of an NBA stipulation known as a "cap hold". If his salary is more than half of the league average, Robinson is slotted into the 2010-11 budget at one-and-a-half times his salary until he signs a new deal or if the Knicks opt to waive his Larry Bird Rights, which allow a team to exceed the salary cap to resign a player.

Nate Robinson will be signed to a one-year contract on Wednesday, according to a person
with knowledge of the situation.

Robinson, who was a restricted free agent who earlier this summer told the Knicks he had no
interest in playing anywhere else, will get more than his $2.9M qualifying offer.

There are also performance bonuses included in the deal.[/code]

Hope that includes the playoffs and not ASG events... but good to see him back if it's true. Hopefully his skills will be even better than last year and hopefully he's matured since the NYPD thing. Dude is talented, but if his head isn't there, he can shoot us in the foot for 2010. Since his little string of incidents is coming to a head, I say he'll be a bigger competitor and contributor this yr than last yr.... I'm trying to practice optimism

I wanna see him a.ssume the leader role on a team with nate robinson, larry hughes and al harrington. Sorry Wilson, you're the best player but you're too pus*y to try to be a leader.

Nahhh son, I say Wilson will get more vocal this yr. Him and Gallo are the franchise faces right now. Hughes ain't no leader. Harrington wasn't a leader last yr, but I think he'll be a better team player. Harrington, Lee, Nate, Duhon, and Eddy all know that are on borrowed time... If they don't perform this yr, they don't get big paydays in 2010 (or 2011 for Eddy) or will be traded.

I say:
-Lee stays on the same level he did last yr (no major improvement)
-Hughes will stay the same (ass)
-Duhon parties less and will be more loose with more guards around him
-Nate and Harrington will be more controlled and in the flow of the team than last yr
-Eddy will be "Eddy" but just a slimmed down, healthier version. He has the potential to be solid this yr
-Wil and Gallo will be more vocal and step up their team play (Gallo will be a 6th man nominee)
-JJ will be solid one day and a.ss the next (no change)

And shock prediction:
-Harrington's attitude will change so much that he will re-sign with the Knicks in 2010... for a 1-yr contract. I think he'll live up to matured potential this yr

While Knicks guard Nate Robinson is close to signing a one-year deal for more than the $2.9 million qualifying offer, the real story is David Lee's situation, which is a lot less certain just four days before training camp opens in Saratoga. According to a source, Robinson could ink a one-year contract after agreeing to major portions of a incentive-laden deal. A source with intimate knowledge of the situation said the deal still must be finalized but could be signed today or tomorrow. Knicks officials are confident they also will ink Lee to a one-year deal before Monday's camp. But his agent, Mark Bartelstein, stopped short of saying that, raising the specter of a holdout. -- NY Post

Nice Post...and I agree with much of what you said.

As much as I can't stand No Sharrington A.K.A Free Candy...he does put up points in bunches, extends the defense and can play some pretty solid defense when he's into it. He'll have the whole year to find his ROLE, becuase he's nothing more than a ROLE player...but he can be a good one.

I'm not so sure about Wilson becoming more of a vocal leader, he just doesnt possess those leadership qualities. He's more the "Silent a.ssasin". We all know who the leader of this squad is going to be for this season, and I'm more than fine with Gallo a.ssuming that role.

I do see Lee digressing as well, but possibly adding new elements to his game (extended J). He had an awesome year last year, but he really hurt us on the defensive end. With the additions of Milicic and Hill possibly getting some time at the 5, I can see his rebounding totals dip a bit while his scoring #'s go down (since he wont be able to use his speed off the dribble against slower Centers). He'll still see plenty of time at the 5 though, Im sure of it.

Word... Harrington will find his role, he'll know the offense better, and within 2 months of the season starting, you'll notice his game taking form and him maturing.

Wilson is the silent k!ller, but he will be more vocal this yr. He listens when people tell him, and D'Antoni has now told him in so many words, "This is your time to show you can be an All-Star, and you will be one in this offense if you're being more vocal." I doubt he'll be an All-Star this year, but he can have a skill set like Caron Butler (though not as good) by the middle of the season if he keeps progressing, including finishing games.

Agreed about Lee. But I am betting that as the year goes on Jordan Hill will start to chip away at getting more and more PT. Lee should've accepted the 7-9 mill and work at securing his position and "shine time" in the offense AND defense, before Hill takes it. Cuz if he doesn't start practicing with the team soon, his the D might as well be left out his nickname. Lee needs get with it, before he hurts his stock. WTF does Bartelstein think he's gon get this dude? 10-12 mil? Not even in 2010, no one will give him that. Improve on the court for another yr, then maybe some team will at least give thought to 10-12 mill...

The Knicks have reached an agreement with David Lee on a one-year contract that will pay him $7 million and an additional $1 million bonus if the team makes the playoffs this coming season.

The contract could pay Lee more than triple the amount of his qualifying offer even though it appears that Lee did not have any other options at this late stage of the off-season.

"They did something that's never been done before," Mark Bartelstein said about the Knicks' decision to pay Lee based on performance rather than forcing him to accept his $2.6 million qualifying offer.

The Knicks turned away a number of sign-and-trade proposals brokered by Bartelstein. Portland made a substantial offer to Lee in late July, but he turned it down. "Unless something was completely life-changing from another team, I was planning to come back to New York," David Lee said. -- NY Times
