All Day I Dream About Shumpert. If A.D.I.D.A.S needs a new tagline, we got you now that Iman Shumpert has been lacing up the Top Ten 2000 2wo 1ne, the Crazy 8, and now the Real Deal.
During the current six game winning streak of the Knicks, Shump has posted flicks of each new pair of Real Deal before game time. The most recent, a sparlking silver/orange/blue pair was posted on his Instagram last night before he dropped 13 points in the first quarter against the Memphis Grizzlies; he would finish with 16 altogether. In a previous game against Toronto, Shumpert showcased a black/orange/gray/blue colorway of the Real Deal, which the Knicks also won.
Is the Real Deal about to steal the spotlight from his regular rotation of the 2wo 1ne? Back in February, after the Knicks lost to the Raptors at Madison Square Garden in their first meeting, he photographed the red/black/white kit sitting on a private jet. He wasn’t in the form we’re seeing now, as, back then, he played only 21 minutes and ended the game with 5 points. Then there was the struggle of Shump being on a minutes restriction after coming back from injury. That’s a non factor now because, these days, Shump is getting back his offensive and defensive prowess we saw last season. When we’re not seeing him on the court, Shump and his flattop, are turning it up also for adidas in their adicolor commercials. Keep your eyes on the real. Done deal.
The adidas Real Deal is available in five colorways at Eastbay and Champs priced at $110.
A while ago, I showed you all some screen shots from NBA 2K12 that showed off the Knicks’ yet to be released winter league jerseys. Today, we get a look at the real thing, modeled by who else, but Iman Shumpert.
These jerseys are supposed to be worn for the Knicks’ Christmas Day matchup with the Lakers, as well as for all weekend home games in the second half of the season.
Yes, that’s a whole lot of orange.
Well, Iman Shumpert is pretty serious about this whole rapping thing, so I thought I’d share one of his latest tracks. Unlike some rapping NBA players, I’d say Shump actually has some skills. Thoughts?
