The Knicks defense started off red hot this year but the past couple games they’ve taken a slump. One of their most defensive presence’s is guard Iman Shumpert who went out with a torn ACL during the game one of the playoffs last season. We haven’t heard much about his recovery but he might finally have a return date in mind. Read more after the jump.
Shumpert told The Post recently his target date for return is January, not December. The former Georgia Tech guard will be a dynamo to aid the Knicks’ on-the-ball defense and take pressure off Brewer. Before suffering a torn ACL, Shumpert was among the best perimeter defenders in basketball in his rookie season.
