Knicks fans was calling him the next Dwayne Wade, they said he was the best defensive player in the NBA. I been watching him ever since he came back and it looks like he lost a step.

Will he ever get back to that Dwayne Wade level style of play?

Knicks fans thought, rightfully, that Shump was an elite perimeter defender with a raw offensive game. Now he is those same things plus tentative as a result of his ACL surgery, which prevents him from having a major impact. He has been improving though.

He tore his ACL. He's coming around but its a process. Took Rubio awhile to get his groove back. I think we have to reserve judgement to next year. His jumper and deep ball have been money though. I think he will regain his lateral quickness and defensive swagger but he admits hes not 100% confident out there yet. Rose ain't even on the court yet and your acting like Shump should be at his top form, they tore their ACL's on the same day.

3 of your most recent threads have bashed the Knicks. Instead of talking out of your *** bring some evidence. Again maybe one or two dumb knick fan compared him to wade but 99%. Never said he would be anywhere near wade level esp on offense.. You can deny it being a troll thread but it is.

I made 2 threads that are both facts. Melo is not a superstar, and what happened to Shumpert. If you consider that trolling than you are just to emotional about your team players.

What is wrong with asking what happened to Iman Shumpert? He hasn't looked that great since he returned.

Do you see all the Dwight threads on PSD, post what you want I don't care about what people say about Dwight. I'm on the record saying Dwight has sucked this year. Unlike you I don't take what other people say seriously.

Im pretty sure he wasnt better than him before the injury, but on the same level, yes. But thats besides the point, you're just a product of the OP's goal- to get people like you to take the bait and talk negatively about a player who is trying to come back from a devastating injury.

You don't see what? That he tore his ACL? That Rose is still not even confident enough on his knee to even play? Shump has said he's not confident in his lateral motion yet, you can see it the way he plays, he avoids putting to much pressure in his east-west movement and everytime he gets tangled or falls he is extremely slow to get up, its a big mental wall you need to leap over to trust your knee again. He's getting there but were not gonna see last years Shumpert until next year and that was pretty much expected.

Dankster
03-15-2013, 10:17 AM
No one ever compared to him Wade. Not even close.

Some comparisons were made to Tony Allen and if his game evolved more he could have the ceiling of an Andre Iguodala. These were what "some" people were saying, personally I think his game is closer to Tony Allen than it is Andre's.

He's coming off a devastating knee injury. Rule of thumb has been it takes at least a year until they're back to their normal self (especially on the physcological/mental end of it.) But even if he ever does make a full recovery, he'll never be close to Wade. Wade's a tremedous 2 way player, most of Iman's potentital is only on the defensive side of the ball. Still a very good player to pick up as a middle first round selection.

You're probably misquoting whoever said he was the next D-Wade. I could see somebody saying put Shumpert in front of Dwade and you can slow him down.

That said, its mostly coming back from injury because this is basically rehab time. Common misconception is "don't come back til you're 100%" but the fact is he's not an injury risk its that he hasn't built that strength and conditioning back to 100%.

There's also the Landry Fields disease. Coming into the league his jumpshot was a question mark and he was getting sagged on. Now he's getting a little more attention.

Stinkyoutsider
03-15-2013, 12:11 PM
Shumpert will be back to being himself on the floor by the middle of next season. An ACL tear is a serious injury and being cleared by doctors lets us know that the surgery has completely healed. But it doesn't say whether the ACL or the knee is strong enough for Shumpert to be himself. Rehab has helped him a lot but he won't be himself until he continues to play.

Same thing with Derek Rose. I know mentally he's not there yet but the sooner he gets out there, the sooner he'll get his knee and ACL back to what it was before the injury.
