Knicks rookie guard Iman Shumpert, who officially pulled out of the Slam Dunk contest yesterday because of tendinitis in his knee, admitted to The Post he had a “Linsane’’ trick up his sleeve.
Yes, he and Jeremy Lin had talked about doing a dunk in which Shumpert would vault over a couch — the symbol of Lin’s humble sleeping conditions.
“He was going to help me out,’’ Shumpert told The Post. “Once my knee was so sore, I started thinking about it: ‘Am I going to be able to jump over the couch?’ All kinds of things to think about.’’
DAMNIT. DAMNIT DAMNIT DAMNIT.
The dunk contest would’ve ended And 1 style if that happened. What a ridiculous idea. Damn shame Shump is injured and can’t do this. And Jeremy was fully DTF with the idea. So unfortunate.
