Today marks the 24th birthday of Denver Nuggets' starting small forward, Danilo Gallinari. The Italian born basketball player who was drafted to the NBA in 2008 by the New York Knicks, is also known as "Gallo", which is Italian for "rooster" and has an endorsement deal with Reebok for a shoe of the same name. Gallo was traded to the Nuggets during the massive deal that sent Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to the Knicks in 2011. Early last year he signed a four year, 42 million dollar contract to remain with Denver.

Here's to your day Gallo!!!
