Iman Shumpert made history on “Dancing With the Stars” last night as the first NBA star to take home the coveted championship mirrorball trophy.
The baller, who most recently played with the Brooklyn Nets, and his dancing partner Daniella Karagach, beat celebrity finalists JoJo Siwa, Cody Rigsby and Amanda Kloots.
Shumpert and Karagach performed two routines during the show’s finale, one of which was a freestyle dance to a mash-up that included Missy Elliott’s “Lose Control” featuring Ciara and Fat Man Scoop. The pair donned royal blue tracksuits, along with white socks and all-white Air Jordan 1 high-tops for the freestyle dance.
During their other performance, a cha-cha and foxtrot fusion, Shumpert wore a bold animal print and floral patterned silk shirt with white pants and white dancing shoes.
Meanwhile, when it came time to get dressed up to find out who won, they changed into dazzling looks, with Shumpert sporting a shimmery gold suit jacket that complemented Karagach’s sparkling silver and gold gown.
While the basketball star may have been seen as the underdog this season, he ended up wowing everyone with his dancing skills. Last week, his performance to Kanye West’s song, “Dark Fantasy,” which features vocals by his wife, Teyana Taylor, went viral on Twitter.
Speaking to “Good Morning America” about the win on Tuesday morning, he said: “It’s literally been amazing to be a part of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ — all the people they had before me, and for them to even want me on the show is just…that was the best nod that I could’ve had.”
