Iman Shumpert wows judges, draws praise from LeBron James after perfect 'DWTS' performance

·1 min read

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James supports his former teammates. James was blown away by former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert's perfect performance on "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday.

James gave it up for Shumpert, saying "LFG," short for a phrase we can't share on this website. 

Even if you're not a dancing expert, you can appreciate that performance. Shumpert showed off a lot of strength and balance while his partner — Daniella Karagach — pulled off some daring moves. The two clearly worked hard on the choreography, and had a lot of trust in each other.

That paid off, as Shumpert received a perfect score for the dance.

James and Shumpert have history. The two spent four seasons together on the Cavaliers. Shumpert was a member of the Cavaliers when the team won the NBA championship in 2016. 

Following the 2017-18 season, Shumpert joined the Sacramento Kings. He was traded to the Houston Rockets later that season. Shumpert then joined the Brooklyn Nets. He played 13 games with the team during the 2019-20 season and 2 games with the club last year.
