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.

Then came the Kenneth Faried rumors and we saw that the league does not quite value Shump like we do, as Denver laughed off that trade possibility.  Still, trade rumors loomed. Continue reading

Iman Shumpert and Three Trades the Knicks Could Eventually Include Him In

iman-shumpert-knicks-orange-jersey

Ever since the “Iman Shumpert to Denver for the Nuggets Kenneth Faried” rumor hit a few weeks back, the NBA has been ripe with rumors for possible destinations for Shump.

Talk has been anything from a trade to the Celtics for Rajon Rondo, to one for disgruntled Rockets big man, Omer Asik.

But taking the cap into account and the December 15th deadline for recently signed players, here are some actual possibilities the Knicks have if they want to use Shumpert in a trade. Continue reading

The New York Knicks look to continue their playoff-winning ways Sunday afternoon as the NBA Conference Semi-Finals continue at Madison Square Garden vs. the Pacers.

We needed a picture of Shump’s fade around here, so Iman Shumpert leads the Knicks notes.

Shumpert returned last game, against the Pistons in London, with a nice 8 points, 2 rebounds, and a steal, going 2 for 3 from three-point territory.  Continue reading

Mike D’Antoni vs. the Knicks Part Deux: The Steve Nash Edition

The first time around, Knicks fans got their satisfaction.  The coach who they pleaded to find a little defense until he decided New York was not in his future plans, returned to the Garden and lost with his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers, 116-107.

And boy was that fun.  Despite MVP candidate, Carmelo Anthony getting injured in the final minutes of the game, the Knicks were able to run the wounded Lakers off the floor.

This left the Lakers at 9-14, a shell of the normal Lakers teams.  Having dispatched embattled coach, Mike Brown, after only 5 games, LA was still trying to get used to D’Antoni’s “SSOL” offense.
