Ten days more.

This blog doesn’t pretend to be a Basketball Blog but after we were lucky enough to get tickets for the New York Knicks game at the London O2 last Thursday, I’m going to be following Langston Galloway’s career.

He’s Robyn’s cousin.

Tonight, he’s in all our thoughts; The Knicks are playing The New Orleans pelicans and the game means a lot for Lang, as you can see;

New York Daily news 17th January 2015.

The Knicks made some minor news on Saturday without dumping salary or losing a game.

Langston Galloway, an energetic, undrafted rookie guard, was signed to a second 10-day contract after a four-game audition, team president Phil Jackson announced.

In a season full of lows, Galloway’s play has been a pleasant surprise.

Through his brief tenure with the Knicks, the former D-League standout has averaged 9.8 points, 3 assists and 2 rebounds over 24.2 minutes a game.

On Jan. 7, the 6-2, 200-pound Saint Joseph’s product signed his first Knicks contract, becoming the Westchester Knicks’ first ever call-up.

In his Garden debut on Jan. 8 against the Houston Rockets, he had 19 points, including a rim-rattling put-back dunk.

Once Galloway’s second 10-day contract concludes, he will either be signed for the rest of the season or cut.

The Knicks were off on Saturday, perhaps licking their wounds after a 95-79 loss to the Bucks in London’s sold-out O2 Arena on Thursday, their 16th straight loss, a single-season franchise record.

The club has dropped 26 of its last 27 games and hit the half-way point of the 82-game season with an NBA worst 5-36 record.

The Knicks will try to emerge from their nosedive on Monday against the New Orleans Pelicans at the Garden before hitting the road to face the built-to-tank Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday in a race to the bottom of the Eastern Conference.

It’s going to be a tough ten days for Lang so we’re keeping our fingers crossed for him!
