Iman Shumpert Pokes Fun At His Disastrous Crossover

Iman Shumpert

It’s always nice to see the self-deprecating side of professional athletes. These people didn’t get where they are without supreme and unwavering confidence, an attribute that clashes the very nature of most human beings. When they let that mindset briefly slip away, our athletic idols become far more relatable. Read More »

Dion Waiters Resisted Cavs’ Envisioned Role; Thinks He’s Better Than Kyrie Irving

Dion Waiters

Last night’s starry trade between the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder, and New York Knicks basically amounts to the recycling of three talented head cases. Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith had worn out their welcome in New York and offer more immediate tangible value to Cleveland, and Dion Waiters was a shaky on-court fit for the Cavs that gives the Thunder additional flexibility as Reggie Jackson’s restricted free agency approaches.

Video: Kyrie Irving’s Lefty Teardrop Seals It For Cavs

The last 48 hours have been a whirlwind for Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving. The 2014 NBA All-Star MVP saw his first signature shoe unveiled by Nike and wore the Kyrie 1 “Dream” colorway last night when he scored a game-high 37 points to lead the Cavs over the Knicks at the Garden, 90-87. Kyrie’s last bucket to seal the win may have been one of his most difficult, too. Read More »

Of the countless attributes why basketball ranks as the world’s best game is a near constant stream of end-to-end action. There’s no waiting, players perform on both sides of the ball, and offense turns to defense and vice versa in a flash. This huge block of an Iman Shumpert dunk by Marcin Gortat and ensuing reverse, double-pump jam by John Wall is a shining example of what makes hoops – played at its highest level, too – so enthralling.

Iman Shumpert

Many are hoping Iman Shumpert can come into his own this year with coach Mike Woodson out of the picture. Shump always seemed to be in Woodson’s dog house, but with Derek Fisher taking over this summer, the 6-5 guard out of Georgia Tech could turn into a bigger contributor in New York’s triangle offense.

Shumpert Is Excited About Doing More On Offense Than “Standing In The Corner”

Iman Shumpert

Iman Shumpert’s 2013-2014 was among the most disappointing in basketball. As trade rumors swirled around him from last season’s outset, the two-way prowess that made Shumpert one of the league’s most promising young wings the year before all but vanished entirely. He notched career lows in points per game and field goal percentage, dipped from 40.2 percent to 33.3 percent from beyond the arc, and let his uncertain status as a member of the New York Knicks affect his effort on the other end of the floor, too.

Teams Have More Twitter Fun With #NBAMovies

Joel Embiid, Beetle Juice

A refreshingly large number of NBA teams have upped their Twitter ante recently, adding photoshops, memes, and general engagement to common posts of team updates and franchise promotions. Many killed it earlier this summer with #NBASitcoms, an amusing exercise in combining the names of players and beloved television shows. It’s seemed inevitable in the interim that #NBAMovies was soon to follow, and today teams finally made good on that certainty. Read More »

Report: Knicks Would Trade Iman Shumpert For First Round Pick

Iman Shumpert

Phil Jackson and the Knicks have a busy off-season ahead of them. Carmelo Anthony has opted out of his contract to become a free agent this summer, so the prospect of losing him to another team like the Bulls are very real. If ‘Melo leaves, the Knicks will need to rebuild their roster, and it appears they’re getting a head start on those plans by trying to trade into the first round of this week’s draft. Read More »

Video: Iman Shumpert Off-The-Backboard Jam

We’ve already shown you Iman Shumpert‘s killer crossover on Paul Pierce, but that wasn’t the only highlight the Knicks wing starred in on Tuesday night in Brooklyn. After a turnover just beyond mid-court, Toure Murry found time to lob it off the backboard for a two-handed Shump thump. Read More »

Iman Shumpert Puts Paul Pierce On Skates

Iman Shumpert, Paul Pierce

The Knicks may not be playoff bound this season, but they still earned some bragging rights over their crosstown rivals on Tuesday with a 109-98 win. In the third quarter, Iman Shumpert caused the crowd the stir in their seats with a dazzling display of ball-handling. From beyond the arc, Shump went to work on Paul Pierce, which ended with Shumpert dropping a mean crossover dribble that sent The Truth down to the hardwood. Shump then had loads of space to knock down a jumper.
