View Full Version : is it proper for injured players to be in a club?

We've heard stories of injured players doing things that make some wonder if they really care and here comes the story of Imam Shumbert, one of the Knicks best players partying it up and barely escaped the Drake/Brown brawl. Do you think it's appropriate for Shumbert to be in such an environment in his condition and under contract?


Shumpert, the Knicks' injured rookie, confirmed on Twitter Friday morning that security had gotten him out of the club unscathed before the bottles started flying. On Friday afternoon, we learned that Parker wasn't so lucky.

What the hell are you talking about?

And to the OP, no, players are allowed social lives. And a 21 year old living in NYC tends to gravitate to where young ladies are gyrating their babymakers. That is called a club.

It's not like going to a club is some rigorous and dangerous physical activity. Of course it's OK. It's the off season too.

There is nothing wrong with it. He was there with friends, Parker is friends with Drake, Iman, etc. It just happened to turn into a big nightmare.

For pathetic reasons too. I'm glad he wasn't hurt compared to Chris Brown's bodyguard (disturbing images of him online in the hospital )

Hahahaha....I like the mob mentality here, just try to fit in by patterning your comment like the person above right? What is dumb? Dude tore his left ACL and will be out for about 8 months and you don't see anything wrong with him already in the club? You do realize that he is under contract right? it's time people stop been obnoxious and start been real, you're a knicks fan, so what....what he did was dumb. He should not he in any place that he could find himself in more trouble. People get drunk at clubs and things happen such as the brawl that happen, he is making MILLIONS for crying out loud. Reserve the clubs for when you get better. GOSH, enough of all your ignorant comments, don't try to turn this on me.....I am not the one making multi-millions with a torn leg but somehow hitting the clubs about a month later.

i agree, players should be confined to their rooms that have built in gyms and bathrooms during the offseason. they should be allowed outside only 1 hour a day, and that too in a fenced up environment, away from danger. i know some of you are thinking, "wow, is this guy crazy?" but listen, players are human, they need atleast one hour of outside time.

06-15-2012, 05:03 PM
Fine by me, he's just doing what most young kids do. Also, it's early in the off-season and you can't expect him to do a whole lot of physical activity. He's obviously been rehabbing his injury and there isn't a whole lot else he can really do right now.

The point is, that is not the place to be for someone in his condition. The club environment can be very unpredictable....take time off young man, there will be plenty of time to party. When I have simple sprain I stay away from the clubs and I am not even under contract and making millions. In his job, his health is important, you dont get healthier partying it up in the club.

Rose is a role model, a very well behaved gentle man. Going to a concert just shows you how normal he is, a concert is different from a club btw. I am pretty sure Rose went to a concert where thugs aren't all over the place. What a great guy on and off the court....unlike some other injured players.

Dude, move on. He can have a social life, my god. Why is it okay for Rose to attend a concert or Rubio to attend a Lynx game, but Shumpert can't go to a club? Believe it or not, gunfights and slammed drunk people falling over everywhere are not typical of a club.

he should be in an insane asylums maybe he will work on his game 24 hours a day. no social activiies are allowed. It is completely unacceptable not to be working on his game. if hes too injured sit in the room with padded walls and work on the mental aspect. hell call up goku,piccolo,vegeta,and the rest of the homeboys and go train basketball in the hyperbolic time chamber under 100x gravity.He might even turn super saiyan shumpert. everyone thought the legendary super saiyan nba player was a myth including freezbe and lebuu.

Let's be respectful of Rose, he is the former league MVP and face of Adidas, can't be comparing him to Shumpert.

A club can be roudy and people get drunk, kids go to concerts, it's usually a family atmosphere. It's different from a club my friend.

The joke is players under contract still misbehaving. If you are under contract to play in professional sports, you are obligated to stay in the best shape. How about players refund teams when they make mistakes off the court? what if people were rushing out of the club and he got mistakenly re-injured on the leg? There has got to be some accountability here......we cant compare him to us, we are not under contract to anyone.

concerts dont have drunk people or rowdy crowds? im just going to go ahead and assume you've never been to a concert, and no **** kids go to concerts but most likely not the same ones derrick rose goes to.

1 question. If this was Dwade, Lebron or any other HEAT player, would you say the same thing? They've been to the club before, and if you dont believe that, then :clap:

I am not going to agree with dnewguy but can kinda see where he is coming from. These athletes lead privilege lives getting to do something that millions of people would love to do. Not giving it the proper respect is the problem. Hindsight is always 20/20 so it is very easy to sit here and criticize someone after the fact and I am certain Tony Parker and Iman Shumpert were not looking for trouble but trouble still found them.

I am always amazed about the situation Plaxico Burress found himself in. He was suspended from the NFL and served jail time because he felt so threatened when he went out he decided to break the law and take a concealed firearm into a night club that goes off and injures Plaxico. If you felt that threatened why go out at all?

You can walk with a torn ACL...


All you need to do to be in a club is walk. Hell, you don't even need to walk. You can just sit.

What do you think people do at clubs? It's hardly any different than going to the mall, then sitting down and eating an Auntie Anne's Pretzel, the getting up and walking to jamba juice and drinking a few jamba juices while socializing/talking with people.

He was most likely sitting down in the VIP section of the club. And I didn't see anywhere that it said he was drunk or anything. Although he can do that if he wants due to his age. Nothing he did was wrong. Saying there is other things to do is correct but if he chose to go to a club where other celebrities were why are you crying about it. You will feel like an idiot when next season comes around and he is healthy.

lol dude read the news people almost died at a justin bieber concert! What do you think will happen at a grown adult concert full of drunk idiots packed in close to each other? O and the kids that go to concerts do that stupid mosh pit stuff that would certainly screw up a players leg more than sitting at a club and drinking. Security (if he has it) can protect you in a club, but in a concert it can't. To null my point and yours making us both look dumb, but to prove a point, he would probably be in a VIP room either way which prevents any harm from happening to him and allowing him to have good safe fun. We both lose there.

you sound real narrow minded, and like you have no clue how the real world works. nothing about going to a club is irresponsible or wreckless. nor does it mean he isnt working on his game. and "somehow hitting the clubs a month latter"? really? standing in a room "dancing"? you act like he was ski jumping.
