Shumpert at the Epix Premiere. (Credit: Zimbio) Coming off a season that gave their fans a lot of hope for the future, the New York Knicks looked like a sporadic group at times on the court. But one thing is for certain: the Knicks are the type of team that play for one another, and they all care about each other off the court. This was evident recently when Iman Shumpert took major offense to a Twitter parody account of his friend and teammate, Amare Stoudemire. The account @AmarKnee didn’t speak too highly of Stoudemire, which upset Shump. He sent the user a direct message, the user retweeted the message, and after another heated reply from Shumpert, the account was suspended. Take a look at the DM and Tweets below: “@AmarKnee: @I_Am_Iman tryin to kill my vibe! #KnicksTape #amarknee pic.twitter.com/0cdfVDltxL” delete ur profile and do the right thing. — Iman Shumpert (@I_Am_Iman) July 23, 2013 “@jets_knicks: @I_Am_Iman @AmarKnee lol his account got suspended” #shoutout to the fans for gettin that account suspended #TapeUno — Iman Shumpert (@I_Am_Iman) July 23, 2013   @I_Am_Iman Thank You For Defending our dear brother @Amareisreal . Without him, we wouldnt be where we are. Thank you from a diehard fan. — Rest In Peace Keenan (@ContendaGOTEM) July 23, 2013 Good for Shumpert. It’s nice to see a teammate coming to the defense of another. These guys aren’t super heroes, they are human beings and friends. Shump seems like the kind of guy you’d want to go to war with, and he just proved he’s the type of teammate his guys can rely on on the court, as well as off of it.
