Watch Iman Shumpert raise his partner above his head
Schumpert On Tuesday, the judges were blown away by his pure power.
Performing as Jafar from “Aladdin,” the 6-foot-5 NBA star slowly pulled his teammate Daniela Karagach over his head and carried her effortlessly across the steps of the dance floor. After all she was playing the character of the parrot Iago. So his perch was on top of his head.
Schumpert, wearing a gold turban, let his partner down and shouted through his Argentine tango to “Arabian Nights” with flicks and kicks.
When it came to the finale, Schumpert once again effortlessly lifted Karagach.
Huff called the opening and ending of the dead-lift “iconic”, noting that Schumpert had no momentum, all strength. “I’m speechless,” Huff said.
Judge Bruno Tonioli commented on the incredible “feat of strength”. Carrie Ann Inaba spoke for the audience when she said, “I’m really blown away.”
Schumpert admitted that he was terrified of the achievement, but that his partner was “a little lighter than we thought.”
The judges gave the basketball player the highest score of the season, 33 out of 40.

Green’s face cried over Captain Barbosa Burgess’s Jack Sparrow. The story of the dance also featured metal clashes, loud bangs from the ship’s cannons, and even double crossings. Burgess literally went over and over to his dead pirate mate to end the number.
The judges loved it. “A little tough love works,” said Judge Tonioli, a previous PDA-critic. “You’re headed in the right direction.”
