I love Shumpert's game, but offensively he is no Wade yet. Though he appears to be improving, he seems to have trouble finishing.
Clyde once pointed out that though he is getting to the paint, Shumpert does not know what to do with the ball when he gets there and as a result appears to be throwing up prayers. I sometimes wonder whether his hands are big enough to control the ball adequately. Last night he made his first 4 shots, but was 6 for 15 overall and most of his misses or blocked shots were at the rim.

Good time to up this, we're about to see Shumpert take the 2nd best SG in the league crown from Wade starting on Saturday
All things Iman aqui.
Shump will be shump, when will he come back to us? I think next season will be a rehab year for him but we will see Shump doing Shumpy things again in 2013-2014
Do you think the injury will decrease Shumpert's athletic attributes? His speed, agility, and strength were a huge asset to his game...he's LeBron/Wade like at the SG position IMO, a physical specimen who can overpower you (speed and strength)
Shumpert has skill, but he's the type of player with more athletic attributes than skill, IMO. Hopefully he comes back 100% and better.
However, Shumpert is young and physical beast that should recover.
If he can be just as aggressive as he was last year and not be afraid to drive to the hoop because of his injury, then he could be an allstar.
I don't know who to compare him to but he can be all team defense and average 18 ppg possibly IMO.
Shump is built like a smaller Lebron, dude is a beast and I see him being a standout phenom. I am happy we didn't trade him for Nash.
I think his athletic attributes will be curtailed immediately after his return because he will need some time to develop his normal comfort on the knee. But 2013-2014 should see him back to full strength.
His game is based more on athleticism than skill, but that's not to say he is not skilled. He's a hardworking player and is not afraid of giving effort on defense, and that's his saving grace. Because of his effort and work ethic, he will be one of the guys that makes a successful transition from the explosive game of his youth to the more controlled and technical game for his later years.
I don't know how the recovery from this injury works, but maybe he can develop some consistent jumpshot.
