Iman Shumpert is a father, rapper, producer, entrepreneur, actor and NBA basketball player. He became a fan favorite in New York with his gritty defensive play and high-top fade haircut, reminiscent of past Knicks players. Drafted No. 17 by the New York Knicks in 2011, he played four seasons for the team. He went on to win an NBA Championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers and play for the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets.
Known by music fans as Iman, he has made his own path to musical respect with his high-tempo flow and personal lyrics as seen in his most recent musical release "Joyride." In addition to writing lyrics daily, he continues to work on various musical projects and build his record label A Sinner's Peace. Iman surprised fans by appearing in BET's hit show "Twenties" last season and will be acting in a few additional television shows this fall. He won an Emmy® for his participation in the MSG Network show "Beginnings." Iman and family have a new reality series, "We Got Love Teyana & Iman," premiering August 2021. Fashion and design is how Iman expressed his creativity while growing up outside of Chicago in Oak Park, Illinois, in the 1990s. From wearing and modeling clothes to designing, he has now developed his own clothing brand called Centerpiece. Iman wants people to be inspired to become the centerpiece of their family and their own life.
Iman Shumpert's partner for "Dancing with the Stars" Season 30 is Daniella Karagach.
