Danilo Gallinari – Italy and Denver Nuggets

8. Danilo Gallinari (Italy)

Italian basketball is back on the up and it is of little coincidence that the success has come parallel to the rise of the ever-improving Danilo Gallinari. The 24-year-old small forward cemented a starting role for the Denver Nuggets in 2011/2012, before carrying his good form over to the EuroBasket 2013 qualifiers, where he averaged 15.1 points and 6.8 rebounds as the Azzurri won all eight games. Gallinari is now averaging in double figures for a fourth consecutive season as he attempts to make a post-season appearance for a third year running.
