Iman Shumpert Expected to Make Season Debut on Thursday


With the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons traveling to London for a tilt, Iman Shumpert will at last make his season debut. Per Newsday: “Mike Woodson made it sound as if Big Ben and the London Bridge are not among the things he wants to see after the Knicks fly to England Monday night to play the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. What he really wants to see is Iman Shumpert on the court for the game. ‘Just to have him back in uniform will be nice,’ Woodson said Sunday of the second-year guard, who has been cleared to play after left knee surgery and, barring a setback, will make his season debut Thursday. ‘I’m sure he’s going to be a little sore, the fact that he hasn’t played in some time. Just want to get him through health-wise and just see where he is. A lot of that will be based on his minutes. He’ll definitely be restricted when he first steps out on the floor.’”

    They really need to stop international games, it just is pointless.

  • spit hot fiyah

    not for people dreaming about seeing live nba action and that can not travel to the states

  • spit hot fiyah

    will he be listed at 6’8 with the flat top?

  • Redd

    But the NBA fans there are few & select.

  • wickedsucka

    being from europe, i can say that this simply is not true!

  • Redd

    What part?

    Honestly I’m happy Stern has decided to quit the whole creating a team in Europe idea tho, doesn’t make sense.

  • Max

    That there are few NBA fans over here.

  • Max

    Good, excited to see him play finally.

  • LLC#12

    Enough to sell out every NBA game that’s been in London, pre-season or regular season.

  • Redd

    By “What part” I meant Europe.

  • Redd

    It’s based on the fact that it’s exclusive. The iPhone is a good example of that.

  • Redd

    There’s a reason why Stern decided European expansion isn’t a good idea.

  • jim

    No it isn’t.

    he didn’t quit. he said there will be a european division in the next ten years……and he said that like 5 days ago.

  • Redd

    Really? Didn’t see that, he said this like last year in Fall.

    But yeah it’s not a good idea I think.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    yeah idk if they posted in on Slam or not, but i’m sure i read it on CBS

  • Redd

    Yeah I looked it up, thanks. The biggest issue to me is, it doesn’t make sense from a travel perspective. It won’t happen though.

  • cjonson

    Europe has its own professional leagues. Plus its the NBA as in National not International Basketball Association. Same goes for the NFL.

  • bluee

    your argument is invalid

  • Redd

    lol

  • Adam

    Lol. I was with David Stern and Adam Silver last night and I can personally say that there are A LOT of NBA fans in the UK who have followed the league for many years and both men agreed that they are going to keep coming here (allegedly London’s o2 is the only arena big enough in Europe).
    Of course its primarily a US league, but with so many international players now, gone are the days when it’s purely American, so it serves in the league’s own interest to keep the brand exposure globally for a fans point of view and player development.

  • Adam

    Ps. Glad to see Shump will be back.

    It seems that Obradovic has been dismissed since effort Greece’s
    Panathinaikos Athens in 2012; however he spent Oct in port perceptive coaching
    camp. Traveling is London to look at them throughout their overseas trip.
