Go back to last year's hair
I am clueless on the type of performance we will get from Shump's return .. Shump's rookie season did not flourish untill Shump bad-bad decision-making did a u-turn to become a wise decision-making rookie-SG when put in a lineup with PG-Linsanity.
Shump has showed his best talents when in the backcourt with a running-creative PG, the type of talents Jason Kidd was great in the backcourt with 7 and 9 seasons ago (Kerry Kittles style of talent at SG made the two guards the best tandem-guards for 3 straight seasons).
Shump's talents can be compared to Kittles when Shump get his 20 foot jumper at 50%.
Kerry Kittles talent/skills made him a top elite transition guard, but a mediocre-guard when in a steady halfcourt-offense, something that we been doing on every offensive-possesion this season.
Shump's return performance will be mostly evaluated on offense in how well his decison-making will be in a wide-open halfcourt-offense with the oposition already setup on defense .... when Shumps best offense comes from his defense...
he looks a bit less explosive, but i guess hes been doing drills for hours etc. Other than that he is def coming back to form!
layups were his Achilles heel last season...better get them down good
cant wait for him to come back
I'm so rock hard right now.
I've missed him so much
I too will be very happy when he returns.
He's been cleared for full contact practice.
We'll probably see him about a week a part between he and Felton. Not sure when Sheed will be back but we're almost at full health.

All I'm expecting from Shump is his defense. I don't want him trying to do more than we need him to do. Just leave the worries of scoring for his teammates and focus on guarding that parimeter and pressuring the other teams PG's/SG's. Imo, to want anything more is a bit unfair. What ever else he gives other than good defense will be a bonus.
