   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Tiny Gallon - After being cut by the Bucks, picked up by the Celtics, and cut by the Celtics, Keith went to the D-League to play for the Maine Red Claws. As the only decent quality Red Claw big man not to have been injured so far this season, Gallon has had ample opportunity to impress, and has returned decent numbers of 16.3 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 3.7 turnovers in 31 minutes per game. However, the same problems remain; the 300lb Gallon will still drift outside to shoot jumpers than stand under the basket and throw himself at it, and needs constant coercion to remember to rebound. Still only 19 for another fortnight, Gallon has a very long time to turn it around, and has plenty of skills. He just needs to get his attitude to match his talent. And if he could lose the chip off of his shoulder in the process, this would help.

Tiny Gallon

Gallon shouldn't have declared for the draft. Should Milwaukee have drafted him? Perhaps. There's a Glen Davis-like upside there. But for now, Gallon is a long way short of that. And it's a very long way ahead of him.

   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 2
2010-06-27

Pick 47: The Milwaukee Bucks draft Tiny Gallon from Oklahoma, which is bizarre for hundreds of reasons. Well, just three reasons.

1) Tiny Gallon got drafted?
2) Tiny Gallon got drafted by the team coached by Scott Skiles?
3) Tiny Gallon is here?

Gallon is a very overweight 6'9, yet fancies himself as a jumpshooter. He is not a polished post-up player, not a good defender, nor a good shooter, and he manages to turn it over an incredible amount for a guy who does not dribble. He can rebound the bejeezus out of the ball when he so chooses, but that isn't always. And he won't have a 100lb size advantage nightly in the NBA. James Lang needed more than just his weight, and so will Tiny Gallon. In fact, it would help Gallon if he played more like Lang. At least Clubber knew not to take jumpshots.

Just by being at the draft, however, Tiny Gallon gets to hear his name turned into a chant by a room full of strangers. See, this is why you have to go. Even if you run the risk of humilation by not being drafted, it's worth it.

Stu Scott announces that Gallon has a tattoo on his neck that says "misunderstood." Maybe so. But the fact that it's on his neck suggests that saying Gallon is a questionable decision maker is entirely factually accurate.
