I give the Knicks a D because that's what Shumphert is supposed to bring.
Mike D'Antoni lives on ISH. Defense is a pretty important part of the game. Marshon Brooks is going to be GREATTTTT, but he isn't what we need. Shumpert will bring a good level of D. Best player available was Chris Singleton and should've been the pick, but Shumpert is no CHUMP...ert.
