    Harry Gallatin

    Years Played: 1948-58

    Career Per-Game Stats: 13.0 points, 11.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists

    Ultimate Season: 15.0 points, 15.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists

    Career Advanced Stats: 21.5 PER, .497 TS%, 78.4 WS, 0.182 WS/48, 0.012 MVP Shares

    Gallatin was a dominant player, one who provided plenty of value to the New York Knicks despite not truly thriving as a scorer. While standing only 6'6" tall and often still operating as the biggest player on the court for his teams, he was one of the best rebounders in the game, a man who could turn his impressive strength into all-around production.

    Among every player in NBA history who stood 6'6" or shorter, only Elgin Baylor and Gus Johnson have averaged more rebounds per game than Gallatin's 15.3 during the 1953-54 season.

    Not white lol buy he does remind of me of Landry quite a bit. I think Landry is a much better comparison then Faried.

    I believe Harrell has been highly overrated by our commentators when it comes to rebounding, he has a hype of being a great rebounder but actually he looks very average. Which isn't a bad thing, he doesn't have to be a rebounding monster to contribute.

    I think he needs to add a mid range game and he will be a nice bench player.

    That move Harrell made early in the game, double spin... This kid has potential to be really good!

    Interesting comparison. Harrell is a better shooter than Hansbrough. Hansbrough is like Terrence. He can't shoot from anywhere on the court. He's only a finisher. It took him coming off his rookie contract and signing with Toronto for Uriji to convince him to give up shooting the jumper and just go to the rim with everything. Now Hansbrough's FTR is through the roof as he gets fouled practically everytime he goes inside. He's really become a quite efficient garbage man.

    Harrell has a much better jumper than Hansbrough ever thought of having. And he has more dimensions to his offensive game than Hansbrough has with his passing abiity. However, right now, Hansbrough is the far superior rebounder. And Hansbrough is obviously stronger in post defense. Although Harrell is on the rise. And Harrell might rise quickly. Harrell obviously more talented than Hansbrough. And I think he'll work hard enough to surpass Hansbrough quite easily.

    Naw...Murphy was a shooter/rebounder extraordinaire. Harrell isn't a rebounder at this point. And his shooting is suspect (although he's working diligently on it).

    Naw..Kirilenko was multi-talented on the defensive end. He could defend 1-4 very, very well from the get-go. I doubt Harrell is ever in Kirilenko's class. Harrell is locked in as a 4. He's not going to be able to cover multiple positions like Kirilenko.

    Possibly Mason.

    But Chambers? Nope. Chambers was the 7-foot version of Mike Dunleavy. Just a tremendously skilled offensive player who could flat light it up from anywhere. But he never played a lick of defense. Harrell does defend and he'll never be the offensive player Chambers was.

    Possibly. Like this comparison better than Hansbrough or Plumlee.

    Very interesting comparison. Jones was a smaller 4 man. And a hustler/defender/finisher. He was very good in his role. Good comparison.

    Don't think Harrell is nasty mean like Harpring was and Harpring was a perimeter player with mean streak, not an interior player.




    Interesting comparisons.



    The player that came to my mind was David Lee. Lee is a multi-dimensional offensive player with no 3-point range. But he's an outstanding cutter and he's very good operating in the high post and he has a nose for the ball on the offensive end.

    All these things are Harrell right now. He might not be quite as good a shooter as Lee is but it's early. Lee shot around 50% from 10-23 feet his rookie season. But Harrell is definitely establishing a 15-18 footer.

    **** NOTE: Harrell worked on his 15-18 footer all summer. He IS NOT a great shooter at this point. But he went to work on his jump shot and his jump shot is much improved. I'm pointing this out because factually speaking Harrell has attacked this weakness in his game early. Many players (Terrence is just one of a myriad of them) avoid attacking their weaknesses early. And it severely limits the future growth of their game.

    Lee is also the superior rebounder. It's not even close. But Harrell is the superior defender. And that's not even close. Since Lee is one of the worst defenders in the Association.

    And finally,


    IT IS STUPID TO COMPARE PLAYERS ON THE BASIS OF THEIR SKIN COLOR. FOR EVERY WHITE PLAYER WE CAN FIND A BLACK OR BROWN PLAYER SIMILAR. AND FOR EVERY BLACK OR BROWN PLAYER WE CAN FIND A WHITE PLAYER SIMILAR. BASKETBALL IS BASKETBALL.
