1. Shumpert Shines Again


Iman Shumpert has been one of the Knicks' most consistent players this postseason. He saved his best performance for last, as he scored 19 points on 5-of-6 shooting and was a huge part of New York's second half comeback. The second year guard has quietly become a lethal 3-point threat, especially from the corners. He shot 40.2% during the regular season and improved to 42.9% from downtown in the playoffs.

He should be able to carry over his great on-ball defense and 3-point shooting to next year. The next step in his development is for him to establish an off-the-dribble scoring game and improve as a passer. With his special work ethic, he's a good bet to reach his enormous potential. For Iman Shumpert, the sky truly is the limit.
