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. ‘’ Asked if he knows for sure if Dolan is no longer irritated Shumpert said “I don’t know. It doesn’t concern me. I got to make sure we go out and play basketball.’’ The Post reported Knicks coach Mike Woodson was also concerned Shumpert played just one game as the Knicks wanted to test him at point guard. That movement isn’t as needed now that the Knicks signed a third point guard veteran Beno Udrih earlier this month. However last week Woodson didn’t guarantee Shumpert would even start saying the only three who have locked up positions are Raymond Felton Carmelo Anthony and center Tyson Chandler.
