Mike Woodson calls Iman Shumpert “Rook” and treated him a little like one when he pulled him 61 seconds into
the second half. But Woodson had faith in the second-year guard and brought back Shumpert and he played more aggressively down the stretch of the Knicks 10-point win over Milwaukee.
“He’s just pushing me to be aggressive and hiss way of teaching me is that if I’m not aggressive he’s going to take me out,” Shumpert said.
It was only Shumpert’s 7th game since returning from major knee surgery, so he is still finding his rhythm and timing. But Woodson said he didn’t think Shumpert “had much energy” and he wanted him “to sit and think about it.”
Shumpert apparently did, and came back looking more comfortable and playing with more energy.
