The Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Iman Shumpert in a trade with the New York Knicks that also brought J.R. Smith over. Shumpert has now fully recovered from a dislocated shoulder injury he suffered in mid-December, and is looking like his high-flying, sharpshooting self. Let’s take a look at Iman Shumpert’s Top 10 Dunks and Plays of his career, starting with a preview of Shumpert’s abilities at number 10:
10. Ball Is Life Clip
This isn’t an in-game play, but here’s an exclusive BallisLife clip of Iman throwing down the in-between-the-legs slam showing off his major hops as a rookie.
9. Off The Backboard
The Knicks get a steal and have numbers against the Nets. Melo tosses the oop off the backboard and Iman GETS UP for the two handed slam.
8. The Cross and the Jumper
Iman pulls a Kyrie and breaks Paul Pierce’s ankles then pulls up for that sweet flow that’s smooth as milk.
7. Shump Parts the Magic Sea of Defenders
Iman gets around Arron Afflalo and drive hard to the basket against the double team for the slam.
6. Shumpert Reverse
Here’s a powerful reverse jam against the Bucks. Iman fakes going middle, then blows past his defender and takes the baseline for this sweet jam.
5. The Soccer Assist
Apparently, Iman has some soccer skills too as he kicks an assist to Steve Novak. Whats a kicked ball violation anyways!
4. Double Alley-Oop
It’s not all about the points though, as Shumpert sets up J.R. for a sweet alley-oop assist on the fast break.
3. No-Look Driving Dunk from Melo
Another impressive dunk following a no look pass from Melo. This slam shows Iman’s quickness in getting to the basket as well as his athleticism with the nasty throwdown.
2. Flying Put Back Dunk
A STRONG putback against the Pacers in the 2013 Eastern Conference semifinals got the MSG crowd on their feet!
1. Didn’t See That Coming
Since it’s all about the here and now, here’s a play from just a few weeks ago. Iman caught Carlos Boozer sleeping on D and called for the sideline-inbound alley-oop from Kyrie!
