One of the reasons Knicks fans are hopeful for the future is point guard Iman Shumpert. Not only is he one of the young budding stars in the NBA but he’s starting emerge more and more as a leader for the Knicks despite his young age. You need a star point guard to win in the NBA and the Knicks are hoping that Shumpert develops into that for them.
Shumpert has thrown together some great plays over his short career, but he got some help with the latest one from Carmelo Anthony. Melo dished Shumpert a monster jam on Tuesday against the Celtics.
Perhaps the main reason Knicks fans like this play is because Melo working with Shumpert is something everyone in New York can (hopefully) get used to seeing.
