Iman Shumpert made history on “Dancing With the Stars” last night as the first NBA star to win the coveted Championship Disco Ball Trophy.
The baller, who recently performed with the Brooklyn Nets, and his dance 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 free dance on a mash-up that included Missy Elliott’s “Lose Control” with Ciara and Fat Man Scoop. The pair donned royal blue tracksuits, as well as white socks and all-white Air Jordan 1 high shoes for freestyle dancing.
In 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 dance shoes.
Meanwhile, when it came time to dress up to find out who won, they morphed into dazzling looks, with Shumpert sporting a shimmering gold suit jacket that complemented Karagach’s sparkling silver and gold gown.
While the basketball star may have been considered the underdog this season, he ended up wowing everyone with his dancing skills. Last week, his performance on Kanye West’s song, “Dark Fantasy,” which features the voice of his wife, Teyana Taylor, went viral on Twitter.
Speaking to ‘Good Morning America’ about the victory on Tuesday morning, he said: “It’s literally amazing to be a part of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ – all the people they had before me, and for them even wanting the show from me is fair… that was the best nod I could have had.
