Iman Shumpert Nails ‘DWTS’ Performance, Pays Homage To LeBron James

Iman Shumpert managed to surprise fans, again, with his performance on Dancing with the Stars alongside his dancing partner Daniella Karagach. 

While dancing to Kanye West’s “Dark Fantasy,” a topless Shumpert and Karagach gracefully swayed about the dance floor, aligning their moves with the beat and rhythm of the song. 

The athlete also paid homage to NBA player LeBron James with his signature “silencer” celebration move.

The judges gave the father of two a 38 out of 40 for the performance. He’s game to compete and possibly win the coveted mirrorball trophy against the three remaining couples next week, TMZ reported.

The 31-year-old became a fan favorite on the popular show after his Us inspired dance routine. Both Shumpert and Karagach wore matching red jumpsuits similar to the ones worn in the Jordan Peele horror film and showed off their contemporary dance moves to the remake of Luniz’s “I Got 5 On It.”

The duo received a perfect score for the performance with the judges saying they were left speechless, USA Today reported

“That was something people are going to watch over and over and over,” judge Derek Hough said. 

The duo has progressed each week thanks to Karagach playing off Shumpert’s strengths given the significant height difference. The former NBA champ stands at 6’5 while Karagach is 5’5, reports The Focus.

The former Knicks guard is the first former NBA player to advance to the finals on ABC hit show, Bleacher Report revealed.
