OK, I gotta admit I am really excited about Iman Shumpert just like I was about Wilson Chandler and like I was about David Lee entering their rookie years.....and sadly like I was about Mardy Collins entering his second year and like I was about Anthony Randolph becoming a Knick
I mean Mardy Collins put up some decent to end his rookie season and I prematurely dubbed him the next (gulp) Derrick Harper....Blasphemy!
Anthony Randolph was going to be the next Marcus Camby....ouch!
Renaldo Balkman the next Rodman (I was really sipping the Isiah Kool Aid it would appear)
Channing Frye would be an All NBA Player one day, I thought after a strong rookie outing.
Mutumbo,Kurt Thomas and Keith Van Horn would be the best front court in The East
I gotta say I never believed in Michael Sweetney tho! and crowd out loud (literally) when I read the headline "Knicks and James have Bond" which was a play on James Bond referring to us signing Jerome James
Lastly I thought Jared Jefferies was going to be this versitile lockdown defender who would make the All Defensive first team while brining a element of continuity to our starting 5 that mostly consisted of scorers!
Anyways lets hope Shumpert turns out more David Lee and Wilson than Frye, Collins or Balkman!
Ok so I know I wasnt the only one who believed the hype, what are some of yours?
