2011 NBA Combine: Iman Shumpert Excels In Athletic Testing

The results of the athletic testing at the 2011 NBA Combine have been released and Georgia Tech's Iman Shumpert appears to be a big winner given the results. Shumpert recorded a combine high 36.5" standing vertical jump, a 42" max vertical jump, and led all guards with 18 bench press repetitions. 

At 6-foot-5, Shumpert has nice size and his excellent vertical leap just adds to his stock. Especially given that he was working out alongside the point guards at the combine. Many projections have Shumpert slotted in the second round but his strong combine along with some solid workouts could have his stock on the rise. 

Draft Express has all of the athletic testing results. Georgia junior Travis Leslie was the favorite by many coming into the combine to take the vertical leap crown. Leslie posted the fourth best mark in the standing vertical at 33". In the max vertical category, Leslie finished third with a 40.5" vertical. Leslie's Georgia teammate Trey Thompkins recorded a 30.5" max vertical which tied him with two other players for the worst mark of the combine.
