The 2014-15 NBA season was a miserable one for the New York Knicks. They set a new franchise record for losses, endured injuries to seemingly every player who began to hit their stride and traded away a few fan favorites.

If there was one bright spot, it was Langston Galloway.

Galloway, picked up as an undrafted free agent, shocked the NBA community by making the All-Rookie Second Team. He did so by averaging 11.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 3-point field goals made in 32.4 minutes per game.

Galloway started 41 games and hit a number of big shots in big moments as New York’s fearless crunch-time scorer.

In many ways, Galloway is reminiscent of a young Derek Fisher, who currently serves as the Knicks’ head coach. He doesn’t do any one thing exceptionally well, but he’s solid across the board and isn’t afraid to take the final shot.

Galloway could be a big piece of the Knicks’ future moving forward.
