Domingo and I are sitting here watching clips of Knicks-Celtics and being grumpy, but this tweet from Iman Shumpert just made my morning:
Cleared for full contact by the team Doctors! Let the countdown begin!!! I live for games like last night. See you soon Boston.
This comes after Shump worked out in front of team doctors before last night's game and, according to reporters, got a pretty positive appraisal from everyone watching. The Knicks will practice today and tomorrow, and Shump should be able to participate in any scrimmages/contact drills that take place. A snarling, swiping 22 year-old seems like exactly what these Knicks need for a little spark on the training center floor. Practice is about to get a lot louder. YOU DON'T WANT THESE PROBLEMS.
Very excited to have Iman back. I hope he and the Knicks take painstaking caution to make sure his legs are 158% ready to go before he checks into a game, but yeah...I can't wait. This weekend is probably out of the question, but London? Maybe. The Nets game after that? Quite possibly. The Reshumpification is nearly complete. Can't wait.
