"Iman Shumpert is averaging 10.8 point per game and garners plenty of interest from teams around the league, but doesn’t appear to be a favorite of the Knicks."
He's one of the reasons i still watch the Knicks.
@bigapple: you do it once again and I swear to God I'll ****ing sue you for punitive damages. Shumpert is not being traded, right now it's only Isola (a very unreliable source BTW) talking BS to get him some more hits. Of course, trading Shumpert for Faried would solve a lot of our problems as Faried, who plays at the four, is a solid defender (compared to Amare or Bargnani) and a great rebounder, but I don't like the idea of trading the fans favorite, especially considering Shump's commitment to this organization.
Didn't a lot of guys around here want Faried rather than Shump. I would rather trade JR than Shump but it could happen, he's got a history of knee injury problems going back to college, the Knicks might want to sell high with the JR and Timmy playing the same position and we need more help in the front court than at the wing.
In the last game against the Bobcats Shumpert played 30 plus minutes. He took three shots. Felton took 17, Bargnani, 25 and Melo, 22. Shumpert is not a bashful shooter by nature. He must have been instructed to feed the others. I think that Woodson overrates Felton and J.R. I believe he is limiting Shumpert's development.
Shumpert is better than Smith so it would be a downgrade.
Faried is good and we need a player like that.
I rather deal Felton or Smith before Shumpert...I want Shumpert and Fareid on the same team.
last season it was same talk now again
i dont wana any trade with Denved last time it was 5 players for 1
It would kill me if we gave up Shump. He's untouchable, a knick for life, our future....
No to trading Shumpert.
I'm interested in getting Faried and Andre Miller. Miller would do wonders for this team.
I get the impression that Woodson has little respect for Shumpert's play. I can see that from the way Woodson plays him. Whether the attitude extends upwards to the "Knicks brain trust"-- surely an oxymoron --is only a guess. Shumpert's on the ball defense has been excellent in the past, but Woodson's constant switching on defense, in my opinion, diminishes Shumpert's defensive prowess. I like Shumpert despite not developing much during his stint as a Knick. I prefer to let Woodson go, but I am not confident that Shumpert will remain a Knick. At this point Faried would not be an unfair trade, but I still like Shumpert.
Maybe instead of getting rid of Woodson the GM should provide him with personnel that would fit well into his system? Let's be honest, Woodson is not out there playing and judging by his in-game reactions I can tell he's more than unhappy with how these Knicks are trying to implement his game plans. Players with non-existent defensive skills will never fit well into Woody's system. If you provide Woodson with players like Bargnani or Hardaway you can't expect it to work. As of now three out of five players in the starting lineup don't have the word "defense" in their dictionaries. We also don't have a reliable power forward and a backup center. Instead we have a 6'11 PF/C on a $20M/year contract with minutes restriction becuase he's got the knees of a 70 years old. We also have a soon to be 36 years old 6'9 PF who could contribute on the defensive end, but is also on minutes restriction. And last but not least we've got a 7' center who just grabbed one single rebound in 26 minutes of playing time. And now tell me how is this Woody's fault?
