Big Cock to the Big Apple

The New York Knicks, in the first round of the NBA Draft, selected Italian star forward Danilo Gallinari. Of course, being in New York, he was promptly booed when his name was called Thursday.

What's amusing is that Gallinari's nickname is "Il Gallo,"or the cock (rooster, not what you were thinking), which has prompted the snickering to start on sports blogs. You can bet the first time the 6-8 Gallinari rejects a shot, it will be called a "Cock Block." Who said the Knicks were boring? --Jim Buzinski
