I mean, Shumpert could be good, but, of course, he was the first pick in the draft where the analysts were saying "Shumpert's a reach at this draft spot."
We'll see. Usually you have to wait 2 years to see how these picks pan out anyway. I personally wanted Knicks to try to get more size, but whatever.
i agree with this. they should've just gone with talent period, instead of trying to go specialist/defensive guard niche.
those picks are rarely ever that impressive imo. Brewer came out the same way as a defensive guard, and you guys just bought him out.
