New York Knicks rookie Iman Shumpert didn’t exactly receive a warm welcome on draft night, then again rookies rarely do in the Big Apple. Â When Shumpert’s name was called it was followed by a bunch of boo’s and “who is that?” Â During the extended offseason due to the lockout, Shumpert was able to showcase his skills and instill hope in Knicks fans, now many believe he can be a diamond in the rough like Landry Fields. Â Despite fans warming up to him, Shumpert still has to prove his worth on one of the biggest stages, Madison Square Garden. Â Not only is his league debut on one the biggest game days ever, Christmas, he also has to face one of the toughest franchises in the league, the Boston Celtics. Â Check out what he had to say after the jump.
