The star contestant, who most recently played with the Brooklyn Nets and who won an NBA championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, performed two routines during Monday night’s episode of “Dancing With the Stars.”
In one routine, which made the rounds on Twitter on Tuesday, Shumpert performed a jazz number to Kanye West’s “Dark Fantasy” with his partner and dance coach Daniella Karagach.
The pair advanced to the finale, which airs on ABC on Monday.
People on Twitter celebrated Shumpert’s performance to the song, which features vocals by his wife, singer Teyana Taylor.
Taylor joined in to share her pride on Twitter:
Shumpert’s skills on “Dancing With the Stars” have sent the internet into a frenzy before.
Last month, he performed a Halloween-themed dance to a remixed version of “I Got 5 On It” by Luniz, featuring Michael Marshall, which was featured in the 2019 film “Us.” He earned praise from many on Twitter — including a shout out from his former teammate, LeBron James.
“Don’t even try to front, just respect the conglomerate!” James tweeted at the time.
During Monday’s episode of “The Real,” Shumpert shared that Taylor often gives him tips on his dancing, and that he believes fellow contestant JoJo Siwa is his biggest competition.
“My daughter might vote for her,” he said with a laugh.
