The Invisibility of The Knicks’ Iman Shumpert

iman-shumpert-shooting-knicks

We started the season under the guise that perhaps Iman Shumpert could get traded at some point.  Fans pointed towards his defense and those few foreshadowing sparks of offense he has had over his career as signs that there was potential that we could not overlook.
