Knicks Draft Iman Shumpert 17th Overall

With Chris Singleton sitting just a few feet from Commissioner Stern and Kenneth Faried waiting patiently on their board, the Knicks chose to select Iman Shumpert, a 6’6″ combo guard out of Georgia Tech, with their first round draft pick. He was the first player taken not sitting in the stadium’s Green Room, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it does bring terrible Renaldo Balkman flashbacks. I’ll need a few hours to wrap my mind around this one, but more on the Shumpert pick later on.
