Iman Shumpert Maybe he’s been focusing on mirror balls more than sneakers lately, but the NBA champion says he’s NOT done hooping… TMZ Sports he still has plenty of it in his tank.
We caught up with the newly arrived 31-year-old winner the 30th season of “Dancing with the Stars” this week … and he was asked with all the moves he posted on the dancefloor, will he resume his skills on the basketball court ??
“Try to see what we can do,” Shumpert said. “I love basketball. I never stopped playing.”
“They call me ‘old’, ‘ex’ but I told them the league just hasn’t paid me this year.”
The reason for the past tense verbiage is that Shumpert hasn’t played a game since February 23, 2021… when he was a member of the Brooklyn Nets. He scored 2 points in 6 minutes in this game.
But, he insists he’s still an NBA player saying, “It’s not an ‘ex’ thing. Me and the league haven’t broken up!”
Now that ‘DWTS’ is over, we may soon see Shumpert in a jersey – the goalie has been in the league since 2011 … winning an NBA title in 2016 with James lebron and the Cavs, earning over $ 48 million in his career.
BTW, you remember his wife is a singer / dancer Teyana taylor, law? We had to wonder if winning ‘DWTS’ automatically made him better than her. His answer is hilarious !!!
Our sincere thanks to
