Iman Shumpert had quite the offseason. He got paid. He traveled to Israel to play in the mud. He also tried out this haircut.
Somewhere in between all of that, Shumpert also managed to work on his game and make some changes to make him a better overall player. One of those things he focused on was ball-handling.
Iman Shumpert says his focus over the summer was on his ball handling and footwork. Plans to be more creative off the dribble.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) September 28, 2015
Shumpert struggled to create plays off the dribble last year, whether it be his shot (40.9 percent shooting off of three-plus dribbles last year) or his passing ability. Adding this dimension to his game will not only make Shumpert a better player, but will be beneficial to the Cavs with Kyrie Irving expected to miss some time to start the season.
