Carmelo Anthony compares Langston Galloway to Jeremy Lin


New York Knicks All Star forward Carmelo Anthony, like Knicks fans and Knicks management, has been impressed by the play of Langston Galloway, and he compares him to another player who made an impact for the team three years ago when asked who he reminded him of.

“I would say probably Linsanity…he had that mindset of taking the big shot when he first got here…Langston’s mindset of being able and willing to take the that big shot…he loves those big moments.”

Carmelo talked more about Galloway.  “Langston can play.  I don’t think a lot of people know of him or know about him but he can play basketball.  Even going back to training camp…we know he can play basketball.  He’s great at getting in the paint, he can score the basketball, and when he doesn’t have something, he finds the open man.”

The Langston Galloway Jeremy Lin comparison is interesting.  While Galloway is certainly not the impact player that Lin was when he exploded, scoring 20 or more in 9 of his first 10 games playing significant minutes, including dropping 38 against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers, Galloway has scored as many as 21, and is making a positive impact on the team.
