(through All The Smoke):

Stephen Jackson: “Any reminiscences or robust matchups from being at G. Tech?”

Shumpert: “Malcolm Delaney, f****** headache, and Tyrese Rice. Tyrese Rice pissed me off. I’ll always remember this, that is my greatest reminiscence of any individual like…it’s not many individuals that do stuff in a recreation that I really feel like in my thoughts I do know once they did it, like I’ve no response. Like I lowkey am f***** up, and I can’t say it, however you simply…like the primary time Paul Pierce did barely an out and in, and pump pretend, pump pretend, pump pretend, after which shot it lifeless in my face. I used to be like, ‘I did every little thing proper, there’s nothing I may do about that. His physique is sideways, I can’t like…it’s both he makes or misses that. However he shot that too straightforward.’ Tyrese Rice did some s*** the place he would get the ball within the nook, and most of the people get the ball in nook with a reside dribble, and regardless of if it’s reside dribble or not, it’s one thing about me enjoying protection on them that intimated them. That man took the ball and put it by way of his legs, held it again, and simply kinda stared at me.”

Matt Barnes: “Like, are you prepared?”

Shumpert: “Kind s***. I used to be guarding it, and at first, I used to be transferring round, then I spotted he’s not transferring, he’s not adjusting to something I’m doing, he’s simply holding it there. My first stab at it, he walked straight to the road. He simply dropped the ball, walked to the road, and it bothered me. Even speaking about it proper now, it’s bothering me. Then Malcolm Delaney was one other one. That was James Harden earlier than James Harden.”

Matt Barnes: “He had recreation. Delaney had recreation.”

Shumpert: “Malcolm Delaney knew the best way to get ten free throws a recreation, and I couldn’t perceive it. I might shoot like two, three free throws a recreation. I used to be not attempting to flop for a foul. I might try to dunk every little thing. I’m gonna try to end every little thing. I don’t wanna look delicate as a result of my father is watching the sport. Malcolm Delaney would sit on the free throw line. He had video games the place he shot fifteen free throws, and I used to be like, ‘Rattling, that’s loopy.’ Headache at Georgia Tech.”
