Depressing Knicks Stats of the Day

It’s really hard to be this ineffective given the minutes, but Iman Shumpert, the subject of recent trade talks, managed to pull it off during the Knicks’ loss to the Portland Trailblazers last night. Of course, it’s not just Shumpert — the Knicks are 3-10, have lost six straight and, according to historical precedent, only have an 18 percent chance of making the playoffs. Same thing for the 3-10 Nets. This season got really depressing, really fast.
