Danilo Gallinari – One Of The Top 12 Most Eligible Bachelors In NYC

Yes, girls, it’s true.  According to the New York Post, young Danilo Gallinari, our l’il Gallo, is one of New York City’s most eligible bachelors:

Those deep, chocolate eyes. Those arms. That earning power. According to the NBA’s rookie scale, Gallinari will make $2.6 million over his first three years. Currently in his second year, the Knicks’ Italian Stallion — he hails from Milan, with a to-die-for accent — lives in Westchester, near the team’s practice pad. (Psst: We hear he hits his favorite Italian restaurant, Via Della Pace, in the East Village after every home game, so you’ll know where to find him.)

Pros: He’s an amazing cook, and proud of it. He’s been overheard discussing his famous pasta (plus homemade tomato sauce) with teammates. And he’s young, which means you’ve got a good chance of being able to shape and mold him.

Cons: You’ll never be able to measure up to the gnocchetti sardi al gorgonzola — his favorite dish from Mama’s kitchen.

First, I’m too lazy to check, but I assume Gallo probably will make about $2.6 million each year, not over three years.  Second, the dude’s only 21!  Wouldn’t you rather someone like David Lee?  Lee got $7+ million for this season, and it’s likely that he’ll get even more this summer (& for many years).  Gallo could get injured before he gets to the truly big $ (or maybe his game never advances enough so that he’s worth it).  And, c’mon, how much experience could he have in bed?  At 6’11″ he’s probably all awkward-like, versus you know Nate Robinson’s gotta be a non-stop panther in the sack.  Then again, sometimes you don’t want a panther in the sack.  Lastly, not only will he make you eat all these carbs, but being so tall he must eat a ton.  You’ll look like a whale within a month, and he’ll dump you for some 19-year-old who has a complete collection of Jonas Brothers’ albums.

That said, it is nice to see a Knick receive recognition.  It’d be nicer if it was recognition for their on-the-court skills, but we’ll take what we can get these days.
