Though he's yet to hit the hardwood for the Knickerbockers this season, Iman Shumpert has remained front and center as he rehabs his way back.A supportive teammate, Shumpert has already been seen sitting on the Knicks' bench during home games. He's worked out with Baron Davis, who is sticking around the team, as he too, nurses a similar injury, despite not having a contract.Though as Shumpert logs the hours in the gym, he's just as much embracing that Big Apple lifestyle.Otherwise known as "The Rook," the young gun has always kept his fans in the loop via social media. Now, the Knicks' fan base can have an even closer look and keep tabs on Shumpert by visiting his newly launched website, ImanShumpert.com.Hoops and hip/hop music always seem to go hand in hand these days. One of the newer updates on Shumpert's site is the unveiling of a new song he's recorded with Grammy winning R&B singer, Chrisette Michele, who just happens to be a Long Island native.Shumpert has been releasing music online over the past few months, and has even spit some freestyles about his team. With Michele's help, however, this is by far his best track yet. Take a listen below.
