Iman Shumpert as an undersized SF
Shumpert was one of the big bright spots for the Knicks in their season-opening 90-83 survival Wednesday night over Milwaukee. He bagged 16 points and four rebounds. Knicks coach Mike Woodson used Shumpert as the starting small forward in the small lineup that flourished down the stretch last season. If he plays with aggressiveness on both ends, it will be hard for Woodson to reshuffle the deck when J.R. Smith returns from his five-game pot suspension.
Before the game, new president/GM Steve Mills raved about Shumpert the way Woodson rarely does.
