Douglas gets competition in Shumpert

Posted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 182 days ago (
Donnie Walsh's last NBA draft pick got the same response as his first one back in 1986. The Knicks team president said that when he first came in to the league with the Pacers, he was booed for drafting Chuck Person in the 1986 Draft and jeered again for selecting Reggie Miller in the 1987 Draft. With a crowd at the Prudential Center in Newark that included No. 1 Knicks fans Spike Lee chanting "Let's Go Knicks!" as the pick was to be announced Thursday night, Georgia Tech's Iman Shumpert's name drew a mixed reaction that included boos. "I feel good about it. I really do," Walsh joked about the crowd's reaction of the 17th pick in the NBA Draft. "And I'm going out with everybody booing." Shumpert gives the Knicks size and athleticism at the guard position. "We are very excited to have Iman," coach Mike D'Antoni said in a statement. "He is one of the better athletes in this draft who can play multiple positions. He will fit nicely with what we are doing here, defensively and offensively." Shumpert will compete with Toney Douglas for playing time behind starter Chauncey Billups.
