I'm tired of Louis Williams dropping 19 points on us, and I'm sick of our crappy backcourt defense allowing people to essentially drive to the basket AT WILL. Rondo made us into his BITCH in the playoffs shooting 13-23 and getting 20 assists because we gave him good looks, clean paths to the basket, and easy looks at Ray Allen and Paul Pierce.

    Under NO circumstances should a PG who is one-dimensional at scoring (i.e. his shot is AWFUL) be able to score 30 points on us if we're truly a championship-bound team.

    I know we still need rebounding but at least this Shumpert pick signifies that whoever is running stuff over at MSG realizes that defense IS IMPORTANT. I am SICK of D-Wade owning us, I am sick of Kobe dropping deuces on us, and I'm sick of that faggot Rondo. Please, dear Lord, let Iman Shumpert be the answer to that!

    I see him as a mix between Westbrook(athleticsm), Rondo(defensive tenacity) and Wes Matthews(maturity)

    He seems to have a high cieling and from what I've seen he gained weight and he is doing his thing so i feel he will be determined and be a very coachable player..

    Shump was excellent when it counted tonight.

    Poise. Determination. Facilitation.

    The thought of a youthful/reliable 1-2-3 combo in Lin, Shump and Fields has got my nerve endings in an absolute muddle.

    Another notoriously apt bump.

    Speaking of bumps, it's like shooting lines of Columbian coke watching our youngbloods rampage around the court, stroking our team to victory as assuredly as a 13yr old with a Playboy subscription.

    Shump *was* pivotal tonight when he came in. His athleticism alone, when correctly injected into the game, was too much for LAK to handle.

    He blew past Kobe for the baby dunk. I dropped my Knicks shorts and presented my meat flute to the wife for a solo.

    Henceforth, I heard the name Lin on my television, redressed and shunned the BJ I would usually demand.

    She said "you can have a demon BJ if you like", I said nought to her; "I was Lin the zone".

    Lin makes everybody on his team better... because this is Lin's team, isn't it?

    I told you, get rid of the dead wood in Melo and Stoudemire and build on our youth for the future. They're for real and much much much much cheaper.

    I'm sure some small market teams without a superstar like Charlotte or Sacramento would love to trade for Stoudemire or Melo....

    (20 Years Old)



    Stole the show at the combine, looking like clearly the most physically gifted player in this entire draft class. To start things off, his 36.5' standing vertical leap was the highest since nick young posted the top mark in our entire historical database (39.5') back in 2007.








    As we've stated in past reports, the intrigue around Shumpert as a potential NBA player revolves around his exceptional physical profile for a player seeing time at the point guard position. Standing 6'4 with an extremely rangy frame, Shumpert is fluid, agile, deceptively quick, and an explosive two-foot leaper.











    The same can't be said for his play on the defensive end, where he has absolutely flourished this season. Combining excellent length and lateral quickness with good intensity, Shumpert is simply exceptional one-on-one, rebounds the ball at an outrageous rate for a guard, and leads all data bases in steals by a pretty considerable margin. Extremely active with his hands and feet, Shumpert does a great job maintaining his balance and denying penetration and has the physical tools to defend multiple positions in the NBA.




    Iman Shumperts Highlights

    <iframe width="425" height="349" src="[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    In a weird way

    Looks and plays almost identically to this young man who came out of
    Marquette a few years back

    <iframe width="425" height="349" src="[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


    Has triple double potential

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    His measurables are jaw dropping and it will leave a lot of scouts and coaches drooling all over the floor. He plays a smooth game at the point guard position at 6'5.5" and 222 lbs. Not only is he blessed with size and strength, but his athleticism is off the charts as well. He had the highest Max Vert Reach ever for a PG and showed great speed and agility at the combine. His highlight reels show some amazing dunks and acrobatic finishes as well.
    That's just what he was blessed with, but basketball wise, he has some serious game as well. He has a great first step and almost gets to the rim at will against college competition. Of course, once you get in the paint you have to finish and he does, with explosiveness. He has a developing shot and showed strides of great improvement in certain games (Vs. UNC). In the combine many scouts were impressed on how much smoother and fluid his shot looks, and he was draining them more than a lot of people as well. Iman also shows great court vision, especially in the open floor which is were he shines. Lastly, he is almost a guarantee to be an elite defender. He can easily guard 1-3 and play them effectively and shows quick hands to steal the ball and passes. Also, with his size he will be an above average rebounder at the next level for sure.
    He still needs to work on his PG skills and his shot, but he is showing a lot of improvement in both areas.
    IMHO IMAX has the most natural talent in all the combined areas, offense, defense, rebounding, and FINDING A WAY TO WIN..because say what you will Stat and Melo don't play defense ...Stat can't and Melo won't...defensive energy shuts down their offensive numbers but we should look at Amare in the last 3 min of a close game and wonder where was his defense all game....Chandler is great on defense but is 12 points/game period. He brings other stuff like LEADERSHIP.. saying last night after they took his legs out.."I DO NOT WANT TO LOOSE THIS GAME".
    Shumert won the Laker game as the he hit two crucial buckets when they Lakers closed to within 3. He turned last night sure lose to win with that incredible steal aganst the Raptors.
    Everyone is tradable but to me IMAX to me a Havelchek type and is a keeper. If he ever gets his game under control {eliminates stupid fouls, force the issue on some plays} the SKY IS THE LIMIT. He must play his natural positions of SG and SF. He is not a PG. Thanks again for a great thread.

    I agree this guys man D/perimeter D has been incredible to the point i don't care if he is offensively limited.

    Offense gets the Media talking, but the reality is Defense Wins championships. This guy is a very high quality role player player.

    Thanks Donnie (again).

    Love how you went against the D'Antoni grain this time. If we left it up to him we would've drafted a 6'10 three point shooter...smh

    Then again we did.
