Former Knicks guard and title Champion Iman Shumpert has taken the sports world by surprise with his impeccable breakout progression during this year’s “Dancing With The Stars” season.

Shumpert came through to the Power Mornings studio to chop it up with co-hosts Letty and Teddy about his historic run on the ABC-featured dancing spectacle. As Shumpert is in the top contender position for the coveted mirror ball, the skilled baller has put himself in a league of his own with his viral ballroom moments. While Iman admits that he’s in a new phase in his life with basketball, music, DWTS, and what is next for him, the all-around artist has a lot to offer and explains that much of his musical inspiration came from his wife Teyana Taylor.

Shumpert shares with Letty and Teddy about coming up as a kid, being inspired by Michael Jordan, and how in his ball career he wanted to make sure to connect with all of his fans, in the most smallest and significant ways he knows possible.

Iman goes on to discuss his close friendship with the late Nipsey Hussle, why he doesn’t like to be only seen as a basketball player, and much more.
