For the first time in the year Iman Shumpert is looking like his old self. I think he is about 90% beack mentally and athletically. He is moving freely laterally like his old self. When he gets to 100% he will be the force on offense he was like his rookie year. Also his jumper is looking much better due to the time off where he worked on it.
I agree. The Knicks have themselves a keeper. It's crazy to imagine but watching that putback last night, he looks more springy than he did his rookie year despite the fact he may not even be all the way back to 100%. And Shumpert has always been athletic. Plus he plays with confidence and doesn't try to do the most like JR Smith. He just plays his game and let's things open up for him.
Hard to believe that during the trade deadline rumors said the Knicks were trying to trade this kid.....That would've been a dumb move....
Shumpert is...the ( not so ) hidden gem of NY

Although I like Shumpert's defense and athleticism - his outside shot has been horrible lately, especially in the playoffs, and there's something about his disrespectful attitude I dont like.
For instance back in the beginning of the season versus the Nets, he was yelling "you're terrible" and "you suck" at Andray Blatch from the sidelines... just disrespectful...
That being said, I'm still excited for when he and Lance Stephenson get into it. Two hot heads
He's shooting 46% from three in the playoffs, 44% the last 5 games. He's shooting 47% for the playoffs as a whole. And his attitude isn't bad, he a competitive player, you never hear of him getting in fights or getting technicals. Trash talk, isn't having a bad attitude. He's a good dude.
Post 90's Aka Iman.. I love his game, dude is a beast. Chicago has some great players in the NBA. Him, ET, D Wade, Rose, Ant Davis
@TaylorCondrin hahaha yeah but Shumps jumpshot has been great lately. And him and lance are from the Hood, most the players in my hood and all over play like that. Yell and get in your face. They play with an edge. If you dont like it then cool, but thats how basketball is
