Iman Shumpert continues to impress on Dancing with the Stars. The NBA star and his pro partner Daniella Karagach paid homage to the 2019 horror film Us that centers around doppelgangers dressed in red jumpsuits. It was all part of the show's "Horror Night," and the duo earned a perfect 40 score.
This means that Shumpert will remain on the show for at least another week. He would love to win it all, but when talking to Sports Illustrated last year, Shumpert is looking to get back into the NBA. "I'm just continuing to challenge myself anyway I can," he said. "I'm gonna do that but trust me, in my head I'm thinking, 'It's just loading a space; somebody is gonna call.' You know, hopefully once the season picks up, somebody says they need me. They'll ask 'Are you in shape?' and they'll be thoroughly impressed with what they see."
Shumpert, 31, played for the Brooklyn Net last season. He was drafted in the first round by the New York Knicks in 2011 and has also spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets. Here's a look at fans reacting to Shumpert's dance routine.
One person wrote: "With Shumpert dancing, JR going back to college, Delly working as a part-time literature teacher and Kyrie retiring before 30, LeBron's title in Cleveland is undeniably greatest achievement."prevnext
Another person added: "It never ceases to amaze me how smooth high level Athletes movements are. I watch Kevin Carter( DL for Rams and Titans) in dance class at UF, when he moved, it looked like he was walking on air… at 6'6 280+."prevnext
