The third-year man from Georgia Tech has had a rough 2013-14 season to date with lackluster play, swirling trade rumors and reports of friction between him and head coach Mike Woodson working against him.

And Shumpert didn't stop there. He let his feelings be known to the swarming New York press corps.
Rumble, young man, rumble.
