Cavs news: Iman Shumpert supported Teyana Taylor at VMAs
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert is best known for his defensive prowess on the basketball court. However, off the court, “Shump,” as he is more commonly known, is an excellent family man.
On Sunday, MTV held their annual Video Music Awards show in Southern California. After walking the red carpet in her Janet Jackson-inspired ensemble, Teyana Taylor, Shumpert’s talented wife, was given the “Best Choreography” Moon Man for her show-stopping role in Kanye West’s “Fade” video from last summer.

Honored to receive the same award as my idol, @janetjackson!!! Anyone that follows me knows I STAN for her. I chose this look because of Janet's mindfulness of making a statement. My ups and downs have been publicized since 15 and "underrated" was the word I chose to sum up how often all the work I put in is overlooked. Nothing personal just something for me to know I'm headed in the right direction!! I named my first album "VII" because my mom always talked about it as the number of completion, and with my career, it took 7 years of working my ass off to finally get my album out and have people take me seriously as an artist, a woman. It's so easy for others to judge and criticize when they really don't understand your journey. One who hasn't experienced it, could never really understand the emotional roller coaster of an Artist that's so passionate about their work. That's why I continuously strive to go harder everyday. So I just want to give a HUGE thank you to the @vmas, as well as my supporters #TeamTeyana #NeutchNation who have been loyal to me since day 1! I Love you Guys Dearly! ❤️❤️
As any husband worth his weight in salt would do, Shumpert was in attendance at the ceremony to cheer for his significant other. In fact, Shump, who is known to be a character at times, wore a unique tee shirt in support of Teyana.

Hopefully, this is just the beginning for Teyana, one of the hardest working performers in the entertainment industry. With her husband by her side, it seems the sky is the limit.
