Bradley is a better spot up shooter ,smarter and just more fundamentally sound on offense than Shumpert is while being a equally good or better defender at 2 positions.

Also what I saw from Bradley for extended periods this years says to me he could be as good a better scorer.

both are coming off major injuries. while Shump has the worse injury of the two, i have complete confidence in his ability to come back judging on his tweets on him having yet to miss a rehab schedule.

Default Re: Avery Bradley vs Iman Shumpert

Actually a pretty fair question.

I'm a bit biased towards Shumpert because of his size and athleticism and me thinking that would correlate to him being a better/more versatile defender down the line.

On the other hand, Bradley's more consistent shooting would be more of what we need.

I'll stick with Shumpert though I wouldn't complain with either of them.

Both are probably neck in neck but I'd have to go with Shumpert

My bias picks Shump but this is a tough question. Can't go wrong with either one. While I think Shump is more capable of guarding 1-3 and is bigger, Bradley is more of a consistent shooter, pick his spots nicely, and better suited for playing some PG while also being a great defender.

Like both of them

Default Re: Avery Bradley vs Iman Shumpert

I see more consistency in Avery from an offensive standpoint, even with his size disadvantage. He makes great cuts and can hit that corner 3 like no one's business. His on-ball defense is outstanding, and even though he has a size disadvantage there as well...

Uh, uh, Mr. Dwayne Wade!

Shumpert but I'm biased because he's one of my favorite Knicks.

If both healthy I would take Iman. But we need to wait how good he'll be after he comes back from an injury.

Oh I disagree

Bradley showed some flashes of a pretty damned good offensive game last season. Shump will never be much of a scorer.

I also think Bradley is the better defender, his pressure defense is already (imo) the best in the league.

ive got bradley because i dont trust the knicks front office will get the best out of shumpert. I see the knicks organization as one of those types that let the players do whatever they want in the locker room. punch fire extenguishers etc etc. I dont trust them at all with player development. who was the last player that flourished under the knicks organization?? jeremy lin.... and what happened??? sorry knicks fans it must hurt

Default Re: Avery Bradley vs Iman Shumpert

Who knows, but a lot the other Celtic fans are overrating Bradley offensively. He'll never be anything but a role player offensively. A running partner with Rondo will be his best chance for getting points. I don't see all this potential that a lot others are blabbering on about.
