This is good news for the Knicks! Especially with Felton hurting.Maybe Shumpert and Amare will come back at the same time and give them a great bench attack?

Shump still got ways to go. It'll take a while for him to get his athleticsm that made him a household pest for elite scorers in the league. But hopefully he and STAT will peak come playoff time.
