With just over six minutes left in the third-quarter, rookie Iman Shumpert collapsed to the ground, grabbing his left knee. Shumpert was dribbling the ball up the court and while trying to crossover to get by Mario Chalmers, Shumpert planted awkwardly with his left leg. Like most significant injurys, Shumpert’s came without any contact. He was visibly in pain, and needed Josh Harrellson and Jerome Jordan to carry him off the court, while supporting his knee.
It’s about time we have some live Knicks basketball, right?
Today at 2PM, the Knicks will face off against the New Jersey Nets at the Prudential Center. It will be the first of a two-game pre-season, with the second game culminating at Madison Square Garden.
With the 17th pick in this year’s NBA draft, the New York Knicks selected Iman Shumpert. Many people were upset that the Knicks passed on Singleton for Shumpert, but I like the pick.
Expect an in depth profile over the weekend!
