Denver Nuggets F Danilo Gallinari hasn't seen action since April of 2013 when he tore his left ACL and suffered a meniscus injury.  Not satisfied with the results of his two knee procedures at The Steadman Clinic of Vail, Gallinari vows to one day reveal his ordeal of the last year and a half.  

“I feel great. I am ready to return seven months after my last knee surgery. I had a few contact practices in Milan. Now I have to re-gain confidence and be ready. I will need to be patient because after more than a year without basketball you have to work also on the mental aspect. But I want to be a better player than before the injury” said Gallinari. “Steadman? It is clear that if I could go back, I would not go to Steadman Clinic. I will write a book on my last year and half with some things never told. But it is better not to talk about that. I just say that one month after my surgery, Steadman said that he would not work anymore. I made a wrong choice but he was considered one of the best surgeons and his clinic was within a hour’s drive from Denver. Now I see what happened to Giuseppe Rossi, Westbrook, Vonn and many other maybe not famous that went to his Clinic” added Gallinari.
