Love him or hate him, there's no denying that LeBron James always supports his friends. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar made sure that those around him succeeded in life and made a name for themselves.
On the court, he's been the same, making his teammates better and demonstrating his real impact on the game. Even after years without playing with certain players, The King still treasures their friendship, showing his support whenever he has the chance.
That's precisely what happened with Iman Shumpert on Monday night. Not so long ago, the shooting guard was trying to return to the league. Amid those comeback attempts, he enrolled for the TV show 'Dancing With The Stars.'
On Monday, Shumpert achieved something incredibly hard to do, getting a perfect score after his performance. He certainly put up a show with his partner Daniella Karagach, enchanting the judges and public at home.
His performance was so brilliant that he got 40 points, the highest score of all, and a lot of praise from NBA fans and the public in general.
LeBron James wouldn't be the exception and took to social media to praise his former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate on his big night.
"Man my G Iman Shumpert in his f'n bag!!!!!!" James tweeted. "LFG. Don't even try to front, just respect the conglomerate!"
Iman has been trying to make a return to the league, but his efforts have been useless so far. The former New York Knicks player has set his sights on different things instead, and it's fair to say he's done well.
He's still 31 and could be a good addition to any team in the league. Yet, even if we don't see Shumpert playing again in the league, wherever he goes and whatever he does, he will have the support of James. They played on the Cavs from 2015 through 2018, winning a championship together in 2016.
Iman last played with the Brooklyn Nets earlier this year, getting waived after only one game with the franchise.
