We do not know what to make of this.  The whispers are that the kid can’t shoot straight.  We liked the idea of Shumpert in addition to a forward, and we were hoping that the Knicks got Faried or Singleton or fell into Kemba Walker.  If this is all they do, the jury will be out on this draft for a long time, and we doubt that this kid gives the Knicks any immediate help.
 
Knicks GM Glen Grunwald was interviewed by ESPN, and said they love Shumpert’s defense.  He also said they have a lot of ideas on how to fill out the rest of the roster.  They better.  Personally, we like Marshon Brooks way better than Shumpert, if you are going guard here, and we agree with ESPN’s panel on the notion that Shumpert was a reach.
