Danilo Gallinari represented his homeland of Italy with pride and passion in a recent exhibition game, which are called friendlies in Europe.

In fact, his cup overfloweth with passion, as the brand new LA Clipper may have gotten a bit carried away.

This has reportedly produced a broken right shooting hand.

The Clippers front office might not find this quite so amusing.
