Dancing is not everyone's cup of tea. However, as with most skills, consistent practice does go a long way. For the celebrities on 'Dancing With The Stars' who don't consider themselves to be dancers, putting in the hard work certainly helps, as they get better with each passing performance. For NBA basketball star Iman Shumpert, he has been certainly putting in the time. 

For 'Disney Heroes Night', Iman Shumpert and pro Daniella Karagach danced the Foxtrot to 'Let It Go' from 'Frozen'. As with most performances tonight, Shumpert was excited to dance to the 'Frozen' number, seeing that his young daughters, Iman Tayla, known as Junie and Rue Rose love the movie.

Shumpert explained that being a dad is the best job, and he was the one who helped his wife deliver both his daughters. During Junie's birth, his wife, Teyana Taylor's water broke while still at home. Shumpert said that their hospital plan soon went out of the window, and he was the one to do it himself, joking that he had the best hand in the game. All set to make his girls proud, Shumpert put his best foot forward.

Len Goodman joked about how Shumpert was great at deliveries and thus delivered a wonderful performance. Bruno Tonioli noted that when Shumpert embraced his 'bigness', he was like an eagle taking flight. Carrie Ann Inaba said that she could see and feel the love, while Derek Hough agreed that there was a visible improvement, and his performance was a great way to end the show. The judges scored Shumpert 30 out of 40, having gotten 7s, save from Len Goodman. 

Fans were livid seeing Shumpert's scores, especially when it came to Len Goodman, as the judge was the only one out of the four to score Shumpert a six. "I love how #Iman is looking at his beautiful daughter and not even caring about a stupid score as they read them off #dwts He is a winner in real life." tweeted a fan. "You know what I'm so sicka Lin. 6?? The grand hater knows how to bust the mood. Ugh!!! Iman you did amazing! #DWTS" added a fan.

"Iman been doing his thing. Len never gives the male black athletes high scores. He likes a certain kind of man. #DWTS #Iman" pointed another. "Len praised the performance just to give them a 6…smh it's like he only has paddles 1-6 for iman and daniella #DWTS" noted another. "Len is a hater — he's way too hard on Kenya and Iman. That doesn't sit right with me. ABC needs to send his racist self packing #DWTS" stated a fan.

"I think that Len Goodman has an absolute negative bias against Kenya Moore & Iman Shumpert on dancing with the stars, and I am NOT here for it. I don't see this negativity against anyone else… #DWTS30 #dwts #kenyamoore #imanshumpert #toxic" agreed a fan.
