Former Georgia Tech basketball player Iman Shumpert makes me eat crow.

Iman

Back in May, I posted on the Georgia Tech  Raycom Sport’s blog, that Georgia Tech guard Iman Shumpert was making a mistake coming out this year. His jumper was average, and his ball-handling simply adequate. Sure he could defend, but he needed another year school. Iman Shumpert went in the 1st round to the New York …
