We have seem some great dunks this year, and buncha buzzer beaters, but none of them are as pretty to watch as this pass from Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari

We see behind the back passes all the time inside the paint, but rarely do we see one near the sideline that travels all the way back under the basket. It was pure precision, and is definitely the assist of the year, and might just be the top play of the year.

Just for fun, here is a video of a guy that was the best ever at passes like Danilo’s.


Danilo Gallinari Had a Pretty Good Assist Over the Weekend (Video)

With all of the March Madness games over the weekend the best play still came from the NBA.  It was Danilo Gallinari who had what will surely be the assist of the year (if that award exists.)   He barely managed to stay in bounds then threw a behind the back pass directly at Kenneth Faried's chest for the easy lay in.  Video of the pass is below. Like this...

Snakebitten Nuggets lose Gallinari again

The Denver Nuggets have been crushed by injuries this year.  Nene was hurt earlier this year.  Rudy Fernandez missed significant time.  Danilo Gallinari was just getting back into his groove after missing a month.  But just as quickly as it seemed the team may have been starting to jell again, it's falling apart with ANOTHER Gallo injury.  This time, it's a fractured...

Gallinari Out Several Weeks With Fractured Thumb

Danilo Gallinari fractured his left thumb on the backboard while trying to block a shot in Monday's game.

Recap: Too little, too late

                              Kenneth Faried showed everyone why he's called the "Manimal" tonight. Faried had 8 boards in his first 8 minutes, and 11 in the first half. He finished with a game-high 16 boards, and had more offensive rebounds (6) than the entire Celtics' squad's 4. Denver had 17 rebounds alone in the 1st quarter, and destroyed...

Comments from the other side - Nuggets 3/17

Another loss but at least they tried in this one.  But it also highlighted the need to get a rebounder.  If only Kenneth Faried had a twin brother that likes green.  Bring back Leon.  At least he boxes out and goes after rebounds.  I think the Celtics have forgotten how to box out.  Where's Cliff Ray when you need him?  Oh yeah, out in Sacramento. :(   Another game where...

C's interested in former Laker and journeyman scrub Ronny Turiaf

#CelticsTalk: You can add recently-waived Ronny Turiaf to the growing list of players that's on the #Celtics radar. — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) March 18, 2012 Please no. This former Laker sucked when he was getting clowned in the 2008 finals by the Celtics. Now he's a shell of his limited former self. Plus he's always injured and he has a bad ticker. Let the...


Oh my how quickly things change in fantasy basketball from week to week, day to day, hour to hour, minute to, well, you get the idea. Last night the Rooster, Danilo Gallinari broke his left thumb and is basically gone for the season, he’s toast, peoples. Let’s talk about the fantasy impact, shall we? I mean that’s why you come here I assume, for fantasy basketball insight and...
