Shump has a chance to take THE LEAP this season. He has the talent, athleticism, and drive to succeed to do it. Now, he needs to fine tune his game.
Specifically, Shumpert can continue to work on his corner three-pointers, something we saw him use effectively down the stretch last year. The Raymond Felton-Tyson Chandler pick-and-roll combination will become even more lethal if Shumpert can knock down shots from the corners. Extending his range will also open up the lane for Carmelo Anthony to attack the rim.
