Gallo has never really been away. He has been watching most games from a seat near a huge screen at the Palm Street Pub at Marconi and Fair Oaks, not far from his roost.
One problem has been that Ms. Gallina has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) that has left her fairly immobile. She needs the couch, TV, and computer most days and nights. No, there’s nothing to be done.

Gallo seriously, I’m so sorry to hear that. Very tough. You, your wife and your family will be in my prayers an d I pray multiple time per day. I understand the diagnosis. When my wife was diagnosed with terminal metastatic breast cancer and there was nothing else to be done after all the trials I don’t know what to say. There will be better days and worse days and for her and your kids all you can do is make the better days a little bit more special. I live in Chico but it would just be a short drive to join you at Marconi & Fair Oaks and catch a game with you. It would be my pleasure. Hang in my brother. Hope the Kings bring some slight into your life during a really dark time. All my love Gallo

Thank you all so much. It will be hard for her . . . it already is, just two years in. The decline of cognitive function is bad enough, but the loss of dexterity is more of a daily frustration. She can’t cook or open anything. I have to be her hands. The docs all tell her not to drive.

It will be hard for me, too, but I don’t want to whine about that.

Kings aren’t taking the Pistons seriously. They’re coasting off superior talent.

But if they leave this one close until the end and Fox stutters, this could certainly be a very stupefying and humbling L before a LONG road trip.

C’mon Kings. Throttle these guys.

Wouldn’t be surprised if the org doesn’t think he’s quite ready yet. Also wouldn’t be surprised if his contract gets converted into a standard NBA contract like Metu after the trade deadline.

Good news is they’re only down 2 at half despite playing zero defense and the Pistons somehow shooting 9/14 from 3PT despite being a terrible 3PT shooting team. Got to think they start falling back down to earth in the 2nd half. Kings just gotta do a better job of preventing so many easy buckets in the paint(daily issue yeah yeah)

Yeah not sure why Holmes found himself in the doghouse so early in the season, I like Metu but not enough to solidify him in the rotation, on another note and most importantly, why in the hell is TD not getting minutes? He has been easily a top 6 player in our rotation during this run he needs to be in our rotation.

Half time box score does not look nice. There goes the idea that an elite offense can compensate for a crappy defense. If you’re letting the Pistons hit 64% of their 3 pointers on you, you’re not going to win.
