Iman Shumpert

Clippers talking to Knicks about Shumpert, Felton

The Knicks and Clippers are discussing a deal centered around Iman Shumpert (Wojnarowski).

In the rumored deal, the Knicks would send Shumpert and Raymond Felton and receive Darren Collison. The Knicks would also receive Reggie Bullock in the deal (Isola).


3:19 p.m.: Los Angeles’ Jared Dudley is another name that is being tossed around (Begley).

2:58 p.m.: The Knicks are telling teams that if they want Shumpert, they want a first-round pick or the other team must also take on Felton’s deal (Stein).

1:20 p.m.: The Knicks are most interested in dealing Felton for Bullock (Ford), but the Clippers are not (Stein).


“The discussions and proposed players are still fluid, league sources said, and a deal isn’t close to being reached,” Woj said.

Collison, 26, is averaging 10.1 points and 3.6 assists per game this season. He is averaging 23.4 minutes per game (more stats). The 22-year-old SG, Bullock is averaging 2.4 points and 1.1 rebounds in 7.49 minutes per game in his rookie season (more stats).

Here’s the thing: As desperate as I’d be to get rid of Raymond Felton, Collison is no better than a backup point guard. He’s not a starter, and while he might be better than Felton this year, that’s not saying much. Collision is a piece I wouldn’t mind acquiring, but not at the cost of an asset, no matter how bad Shumpert has been.

All this to avoid the obvious solution of a bigger rink! What a bone headed bunch of owners! Poor leadership in hockey, what a surprise!

C'mon guys, you knew this was gonna happen, the league wants to cut down on shootouts, and this is one way that will definitely happen. Is it a perfect solution? Not by a long shot, but it is still better than deciding games via a skills competition. Not six months ago everyone was complaining about the shootout. Gotta take what you can get.

The AHL rule is better than this. 

My suggestion: first whistle after 15 minutes in the 3rd, teams go to 4 on 4. It it goes to OT, 5 minutes of 4 on 4, horn sounds, then 5 minutes of 3 on 3. That would eliminate 90% of SO's. 

Also, change the point system. A SO win should not count as much as a ROW. An OTL should not get a point. Here's my suggested scoring system:

  • ROW - 3 pts
  • SOW - 2 pts
  • SOL - 1 pt
  • ROL - 0 pts

They definitively should go,to that point system. How many times do you a game involving a team from the west and a team from the east that may be tied in the 3rd just sitting back the last 7-8 minutes to ensure they each get a point. Put an emphasis on teams trying to get the win.

But I don't think the league wants that. They like the "artificial" 500 that the current system provides. You even saw here 2 years ago when people would say, we are improving we are a 500 team. No 20-20-10 is 10 games under 500 in reality, only in NHL scoring is it 500.

@all: They want a system that keeps every team in the playoffs for as long as possible. 

If your team is in it, you show up at games. Economics drives this decision, as it drives most decisions..

Bettman isn't even evasive on this topic. He always smiles and mentions how many teams have a shot to make the playoffs at the trade deadline. How many teams are "buyers", how few are "sellers"..

I lived in Fla for 14 years. Had to sell all my handguns before moving back to NY. I've been thinking of applying for a permit and a CCP.

In NY, responsible, law abiding citizens are treated like the bad guys.

@puckdad99 @jethrono9 @ccm77 you can get a premise permit, but no carry permit unless you own like a diamond business or like that bloomberg saw to that and now the commie mayor is in on it also

@jethrono9 @puckdad99 @ccm77 

It certainly is. 

I got married in my 40's, got divorced recently, all amicable, but amicable does not equal emotionless. Still have a teenage son. Shared custody. Unexpected financial reversals and health issues all happening at that same time. Perfect storm. The only way is up from here.

It's a little easier in Westchester than NYC. In NYC, it's nearly impossible. In Putnam, it's a lot easier. In NYS, county matters a lot.

@puckdad99 @jethrono9 @ccm77 this president needs to turn his attention to his own hometown of Chicago they have very strict gun laws yet the bad guys all have guns,

@jethrono9 @puckdad99 @ccm77 

I know.

And of course, a guy that was going to use a gun to hold up a convenience store would go through all that bureaucracy.

@jethrono9 @puckdad99 @ccm77 

In the horrific tragedy in SC, the best thing that could have happened ─ but didn't ─ would have been if one of the churchgoers was armed and put that guy out of his misery before he fired the first shot. 

The best response to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. And when seconds count, the police are minutes away. President B.O. and all his liberal disciples fail to understand that simple undeniable truth.

@jethrono9 @puckdad99 @ccm77 

Look at all the mass murders in the last few years ─ Newtown, Aurora, etc ─ what do they all have in common? They all took place in "gun free zones". 

The definition of a "gun free zone" is an area where only bad guys are allowed to have guns.

We should meet soon for a beer before you leave for PA. I would enjoy meeting you in person.

Is there a way to send a private message to people here?

@puckdad99 @jethrono9 @ccm77 before that should happen we can possibly just post about meeting at a certain time and spot maybe that would work without posting anything more personal
