Then Shumpert should not be a problem right?
Look it scares the heck out of me that Donnie,Mike and the rest of our coaching and scouting department considered Iman Shumpert a good shooter based on one strong outing.....yet his higlight videos clearly show that he has a nice looking jump shot (which is as about an accurate account you can get from a highlight real) it just doesnt drop often, which is more than what our coaching staff had to work with when working w Jared Jefferies who they drastically improved! Again this isnt a Rajon Rondo jump shot that simply will never be affective, a player with a perfect form will develop with shooting reps and confidence.
Jared Jefferies never shot better than 10% (1 for every 10 ) for us his fist 3 seasons as a Knick from 3 and that went up drastically in his second season with Mike D and staff to 33 pct (1 for every 3), he shot a career high from the FT line at 65% too
Now these are not Allan Houston stats by no means....yet given the fact that JJ is a Rodman,Chris Dudley type player on the offensive end those are significant improvements.
Not to mention David Lee gave credit to his nearly automatic Jump Shot to our coaching staff as well, Boris Diaw went from good awful to an ok shooter.
Point being....this kid can develop into a decent shooter under our current staff (if only for a year).
If he shoots 44% from the feild 36% from 3 and 77% or better from the line then I would consider it a success.
Lets Remember Michael Redd was not thought of as a shooter at all coming into the league
Did you know that Iman made the Dean's List twice as a student Athlete, most recently last year, I like that a lot for some reason.
