Well Houston isn't teaching him defense hahah. I watched the all access video from last week on Knicksnow.com and you see in a couple of the clips in the background them working together on Shumps jump shot and off the dribble shot.
"Iman Shumpert's jumpshot. Before the Bucks game Monday night, Shumpert was working with former Knick and current assistant general manager Allan Houston on shooting off screens. After the rookie missed a few in a row, Houston came up to him and said, "Sometimes your shot is too flat. More arc."

Sounds like something they will do as a routine for here on out. Houston can atleast do that for us after we've been paying off his contract up until last year.
WTF on earth does Herb Williams do??? I want him gone! He adds ZERO value and just seems to have a place with the team no matter who the coach.
We've never had a big leave this team more skilled prior to coming here with him as our bigman coach. He's a waste of assistant coach space. If I ever saw him i'd tell him to his face too.
Yup, Shumpert might turn out to be the best SG of the 2011 Draft Class....don't like him at PG, but at SG he's a beast.
His versatility is great, it's more than just his defense. He can rebound, penetrate, provides tons of energy on both ends and is starting to improve his jump shot.
Fields is starting to look like a Honda Civic compared to Shump who might turn into a Lamborghini.
Honda Civic's are reliable. May not be the fastest or the strongest. But they get the job done. Landry may not be hitting that 3ptr but he always comes up with a strong drive to the bucket when we need it. He plays his ass off on defense with the ability that he has. He needs to be the starter in order for JR and Shump to be on the floor together.
