“Dancing With the Stars” made history with its Season 30 winner. For the first time, a former NBA player is taking the trophy home.

Iman Shumpert, an ex-Cleveland Cavaliers guard, and Daniella Karagach, a professional dancer, secured back-to-back perfect scores on the season finale, winning the competition, per ESPN.

The report mentions Shumpert’s marriage to singer-songwriter, dancer and choreographer Teyana Taylor, which could have prompted this success.

They chose to perform a fusion dance and a cha-cha, according to Fox News.

The duo was competing against three other pairs — JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson; Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke; and Amanda Kloots and Alan Bersten.

YouTuber Siwa and her partner received two perfect scores for their tango and cha-cha fusion dance, coming in second place.

Fitness guru Rigsby and his partner also earned a perfect score for freestyle, coming in third.

“The Talk” co-host Kloots and her partner earned three perfect scores for their first fusion dance, coming in fourth place.

This season was already making headlines when it was announced that Siwa would perform with a same-sex partner, per NBC News.

“Dancing With the Stars” will kick off a winter tour in January, per Fox News.
