Iman Shumpert throws down a monster putback slam in Game 2 against the Pacers (VIDEO)

May 7, 2013, 8:02 PM EDT

Incredible play here by Iman Shumpert, who skied over everyone to throw down just a monster of a putback slam during the second quarter of Game 2 between the Knicks and the Pacers.

A lot had to go just right for this dunk to even become possible — the shot had to carom off of the rim at the perfect angle, Shumpert had to time his run into the lane and jump fairly exactly, and the Pacers had to be complicit by ball-watching instad of finding Shumpert to box him out.

Thankfully, it all came together.

      The dunk by Rook was sick, the man got springs inserted in his knees.
      We need his energy on defense with the steals and havoc he can cause, the
      dunk was awesome.

    Didnt he tear his acl the same day as D. Rose?

    • eventhorizon04 - May 7, 2013 at 8:44 PM

      Yes. April 28, 2012.

        Couldnt remember if it was Shumpert or not. Thanks.

    • fanofevilempire - May 8, 2013 at 10:14 AM

      Melo, give Iman-ster one of those bad ass hats for the dunk.

    • llfreedman - May 8, 2013 at 10:53 AM

      Point taken for sure, but everyone’s body is different…I still think guys like Adrian Peterson and Shumpert are the exception not the rule. Look at how sluggish Rubio looked this year…

    Shump is back, baby.

    miami is still better

    • cantonbound13 - May 7, 2013 at 9:52 PM

      A-Rod & LeBron fan? Two overrated guys on PEDs that can’t carry a team & will only end up with 1 ring, sad.

      • melkipershero - May 7, 2013 at 10:30 PM

        Lebron on peds? Not saying Id be surprised in todays age but Ive thought Kobe was on them. He went from almost retiring due to his knees to dunking on fools like hes 20 again.. at 34. The NBA has a bigger ped problem than they lead on

      • melkipershero - May 7, 2013 at 10:42 PM

        Arod was a great player. He wasnt overrated. Now how he got where he was is questionable. There are people who still think MJ was overrated and lots who feel Kobe is. None of the 3 mentioned are. When you start breaking all time records youre not overrated. The question becomes.. Why do you hate Lebron so much you feel the need to dog him every chance you get? Instead of putting someone down how about you focus on the good of your own team. Like Barkley said last night, people who say Lebron isnt good are for the most part losers.

      • theghostofwillisreed - May 7, 2013 at 11:19 PM

        who cares about PEDs?

      • melkipershero - May 7, 2013 at 11:24 PM

        I dont care anymore about them. There will always be a ped ahead of the testing. In football theyre damn near mandatory.

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 8, 2013 at 3:39 AM

        I like LeBron. I hate Miami, not him. I have hated Miami since Riley got there.

        That said, just like Yankee players who used, anyone who wasn’t in a coma or blind in 2009 knows that LeBron used HGH for at least 3-4 cycles. Wade also. HGH jaw is no joke. Both of them get it, and somehow no one even mentions it?

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 8, 2013 at 3:40 AM

        However, LeBron is not overrated. He hasn’t even reached his apex yet. How he got there is another discussion. But prior to last year, he was vastly overrated/overhyped, and that’s factual.

    • eboneseagles - May 7, 2013 at 10:43 PM

      You should just leave.

      • melkipershero - May 7, 2013 at 10:48 PM

        Me? Id hope not. Its funny when someone has success people automatically go to the ped nonsense.

      • melkipershero - May 7, 2013 at 11:25 PM

        Ah. So you can throw out Lebron on peds and its fine. Throw Kobe out there and its like saying God was a woman.

    • Mr. Wright 212 - May 8, 2013 at 3:21 AM

      miami is still WORRIED, is more like it.

  5. 13arod - May 7, 2013 at 9:13 PM

    if you want to see better dunks then watch lebron and wade do it better

  6. eboneseagles - May 7, 2013 at 9:15 PM

    No signs of an injury anymore, people forget he was one of the sickest Dunkers last year. Lets go baby, 24 point lead as of now.

  7. bux1022 - May 7, 2013 at 9:32 PM

    Another blowout of the defensively sound pacers!!! Lol

    • Mr. Wright 212 - May 7, 2013 at 9:46 PM

      They didn’t get away with hacking without recourse tonight, look at the difference lmao

      • melkipershero - May 7, 2013 at 10:32 PM

        Come on Mr. Wright. I agree with you on a lot but when you win just leave the refs out for a night. In Indy it could get awful though so start saving up your inner ref rage :)

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 8, 2013 at 3:34 AM

        lmao the thing is, I was telling people that Joe Crawford was assigned to this game to ensure that the Knicks would get the benefit of calls. It goes both ways with me. That’s why I have to keep telling these yokels that it’s not “whining” or “blaming” the refs, it’s calling them out. We got away with a ton of stuff tonight that has been called left and right in both of these series thus far. Yes, they called the Pacers for fouls that they got away with in Game 1, but I am also man to admit that we got several calls/non-calls that benefited us tonight, when we normally don’t get the benefit on similar plays for most games. I just hate that they have an agenda. It’s not “oh, all NBA refs are bad”, because they aren’t. But they are made to look bad when they are officiating with an agenda and not calling what they actually see. That’s why the refs incense me so much, whether the Knicks get screwed by them, or benefit from it. It cheapens the win for the team that benefits from the officiating.

    Awesome hair, awesome dunk. That guy can jump.

    • tampajoey - May 7, 2013 at 11:16 PM

      Roger is the man!

  9. tampajoey - May 8, 2013 at 12:00 AM

    I wonder if Derrick Rose was watching?

    • fanofevilempire - May 8, 2013 at 10:04 AM

      why, are you inside Roses knee?

      • tampajoey - May 8, 2013 at 12:30 PM

        @fanofevilempire … No, but doctors have and they cleared him to play over 2 months ago.

  10. money2long - May 8, 2013 at 6:10 AM

    wow @ the ped discussion that started on this board. i’m hoping no one important (kobe, wade, lebron etc) in the nba is using. it will ruin their mystique.

    • melkipershero - May 8, 2013 at 1:47 PM

      I guarentee more than one NBA star is on or did something. If its Lebron or Kobe well never know. Grantland did a piece on it. I believe the NBA has swept 20 something positive tests.

      • money2long - May 8, 2013 at 5:44 PM

        im guessing hedo was a scapegoat

  11. lakerluver - May 8, 2013 at 9:55 AM

    That was ridiculous!!

  12. yousuxxors - May 8, 2013 at 11:14 AM

    shump was sloppy all year. it wasn’t till the Celtic aeries that the shump NY grew to love has been back in top form. you saw he didn’t trust his knee as much. now his monster dunks and amazing defense are back. what a steal at 26th. he only gonna get better to as his jump shot gets better.
