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.
