Iman Shumpert said he isn’t worried about the notion owner James Dolan was ticked at him for him allegedly balking at playing in the Las Vegas summer league in July.
As it was Shumpert played just one summer-league game before heading to China and Taiwan to help open an Adidas store and serve as NBA ambassador.
The controversy arose when an outtake from a Stephen A. Smith ESPN interview with Dwight Howard surfaced on Youtube. During an off-air chat Smith said he’d heard Dolan was furious at Shumpert for allegedly not wanting to play summer league and that he wanted him traded. Smith said later on his radio show he believed Dolan was no longer peeved because Shumpert showed up.
“That’s fine that’s the media’’ Shumpert said at a Delta appearance Wednesday to promote the U.S. Open. “ Things get blown up in this day and age with social media. It’s crazy. That video got out there and stuff happens. I’m happy to be a Knick. I’m worried about business. ‘’
