I agree with this. I think I'm managing my expectations accordingly considering where he was picked in the draft and what he's shown us since being drafted. The only thing I argue here is that so many people in this thread are getting too uptight when someone says "I'm glad he's doing what he should be doing", or "stop making excuses for the kid, he was a top 3 pick". These arn't attacks towards gally, nor are they doubts.

earlier ITT some posters were saying Gally needs to pick up the point totals (regardless of how well he was playing in games). Again... no doubt, no attack, just observations of high expectations (which everyone should have for this kid). A lot of fans took this as insults towards gally... just relax!
