Iman Shumpert was already an NBA champion, now he’s the champion of Dancing with the Stars. Shump and his partner Daniella Karagach have won the historic show’s 30th season crown. Shumpert becomes the first ex-NBA player to win the Mirror Ball trophy.
In his last dance, Shumpert shaped his Chicago roots by adding footworkin to his ballroom routine.
“Dancing With the Stars makes people fall in love with your story,” Shumpert told the New York Post. “They fall in love with you as a person, as an individual. I think ‘Dancing With the Stars’ did a tremendous job of promoting me as a father and husband and that is one of the most relatable things in the world. The fame is more personal in this regard. “
