PLAYERS: Iman Shumpert
TEAMS: New York Knicks
Knicks' Iman Shumpert isn't afraid to be himself. From his very high top fade hairdo to now his choice of sneakers. We all know him as a high-flyer with the occasional dunk to bring fans up and out of their seats but perhaps we have discovered the secret to his leaping ability - winged sneakers! I have no idea where to begin with this but check out Iman's multi-colored, metallic-looking, winged kicks he showed to ESPN's Rachel Nichols. Yeah I personally would never be caught wearing these eye-opening kicks.

JR Smith Doesn’t Want to Talk About Clubbing or Slump; Fine $5k For Flopping

Depending on who you talk to, the clubbing and slump have nothing to do with each other or there is a direct correlation.
