New York Knicks rookie Langston Galloway recently called up from the D-League Westchester Knicks, made his season debut after Iman Shumpert and JR Smith were moved to the Cavaliers and boy did he make a name for himself early. The Knicks still ended up losing by a ton, but Galloway had the best Madison Square Garden rookie debut since 1984 and smashed this dunk home to the sleepy crowds delight.

Rookies Travis Wear and Cleanthony Early, also had strong showings with extra playing time. However the Knicks still dropped their 14th straight game in a row.
