PLAYERS: Iman Shumpert
TEAMS: New York Knicks
According to Sheridan Hoops, The camp of Iman Shumpert has grown frustrated the way Iman has been developed in the Knicks rotation since his return from injury. I hope all this is not true and Iman is a happy camper in the Orange an Blue. If you read this article from Sheridan Hoops, it sounds as if the Knicks are not using him the proper way and Iman and his handlers are not happy about it. “There are major concerns (from people close to Shumpert) over how the Knicks are developing him,” a source from another team told SheridanHoops.com, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “They feel he’s being played out of position (at small forward) and his confidence is suffering because of it. They understand the team is having success and it has to be the right deal, but they’d prefer Iman in another situation… And soon.” If New York decides they need to move Shump, then they better think long and hard on his value and what they expect in return. A quality power forward with toughness to split time with Amar’e? A back-up point guard to help Raymond , since J-Kidd and PP have not played well the past month or so? The Knicks have a lot to think about up until Thursday’s trade deadline approaches, but it all starts here with Shump. What does he want?   Peter A – Knickswag The post Iman Shumpert’s Camp Not Happy? appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.

Keep it on the hush: Stephon Marbury sued over ‘hush money’

Sometimes, stupid is as stupid does… Stephon Marbury proves that theory correct. The ex-NBA star evidently didn’t understand that if you can read it and sign it, it’s a binding contract. Marbury promised his then chef Thurayyah Mitchell and jump off $900,000 dollars to keep their affair private. Mitchell had the agreement in writing, and filed a lawsuit against Marbury after...

Knicks mid-season report card

via bleacherreport.com With the All-Star break shortly coming to an end, I’m taking a look at each player on the roster and will evaluate their production thus far into the season. The Knicks started out the season as one of the few surprise teams in the league, once leading all of the Eastern Conference before coming back down to earth. They are currently the number two seed in...

Steve Novak was Made for the 3-Point Contest, But It Will Be a Tough For Him To Win

Imagine if Steve Novak was in that State Farm commercial with Aaron Rogers talking to a classroom of students.  One of the kids could tell him he should have “double checked” the defender with a pump fake and then shoot to avoid from being blocked. “Is that a question?” Novak could ask. “No, just an observation,” replies the student with a smile. Novak may “Discount...

Why Aren’t Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett Still Feuding?

Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett.  We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8.  It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” Now I’m not married but if...

Why is James White In the Dunk Contest? Because He’s the Best Dunker That You Have Never Heard Of.

We know about most of the participants in this year’s dunk contest. Just kidding. In the past few years, the dunk contest has been filled with up and comers and bench warmers. So allow me to reintroduce themselves. Jeremy Evans is that nobody that won last year. I don’t think too many people even remember that he won last year. Go ahead. Ask one of your boys who won the NBA dunk...

The Knicks Small Forward Dilemma

It’s no secret that the Knicks are notoriously slow starters in the 1st quarter.  It has become a growing trend where the Knicks open up with a dreadful 1st quarter, play a good 2nd quarter to cut the halftime deficit to a reasonable margin, trade leads in the 3rd and then hope to gain an edge in the 4th quarter and pull away.  Although the Knicks are statistically one of the...
