Danilo Gallinari went to the New York Knicks in Thursday’s NBA Draft and the Italian star forward was promptly greeted with a welcoming round of boos from bitter fans.

They must be overcompensating, worried that Big Cock might, uh, overshadow them in matters of the flesh. Seriously, that’s his nickname. Well, sort of.

There’s some squabbling over the translation of Gallinari’s web site. It includes references to Big Cock, with some translations tilting more toward the rooster variety rather than the other.

Gallinari, 19, is a stud who stands 6’8” and weighs in at 210. We prefer to imagine the latter and will stick with the snickering, lockerroom banter, cheap thrills and easy puns. Sorry. It’s a blog. That’s what we do.

Hat tip to Outsports. We totally riffed their headline because, well, it doesn't get much better than that.
