Danilo Gallinari Announces J.J. Hickson Dunk in Italian (Video)

Danilo Gallinari

Danilo Gallinari has his fate in the hands of injury gods now. After suffering a torn meniscus, he had surgery in December to fix it, and it’s looking like the Nuggets forward will be sitting on the sidelines for another month or two, as he’s a few weeks away from being fully healed, and then probably a few weeks away from getting back into game-shape.

But while he’s sidelined, Danilo Gallinari has found another outlet to be of service for his team.

Last night, Gallinari sat with the Nuggets announcing crew during their game against the Dallas Mavericks, and he even did some play-by-play. In Italian.

If you thought Italians were a passionate people, just wait until you hear one announcing an alley-oop dunk. But you don’t have to wait long…

In case you’re more interested in the play than the call, that was J.J. Hickson throwing down. But let’s get back to what we really want: Italian simulcasts of Nuggets games for the rest of the season!
