I just feel Shumpert has star ability-potential. Has everything you look for in a potentially great player. Ahletic ability, can guard the 1 through 3 position(s), plays with defensive pride on the defensive end, plays with alot of confidence, very aggressive kid etc, etc. If he can improve his jump shot and overall shot selection, he could become something special. Sure, he hasnt played a regular season game yet, only time will tell, but he looked very good during his first ever NBA game against the Nets. Also looked to be one of the most athletically gifted talents during the lockout amongst other young players. Hopefully he looks good again tonight, the preseason game is at I believe 7:30.
Madison Square Garden should be electirc tonight, cant wait man. Hopefully we see alot of Jerome Jordan too. Thoughts on Jerome? The chants of defense, defense, defense are on the verge of sending chills through my spine. Speaking of defense, it would be nice to see the Knicks keep NJ under 85 points once again. Build a little defensive confidence/momentum heading into our Christmas day matchup againt Boston.
