Iman made history as the first NBA player to win DWTS, performing a cha cha and foxtrot (which earned 40/40—a perfect score!) as well as a freestyle, which also earned a 40/40.
In an interview with People, Iman dedicated his win to his mom, saying “My mother has been coming to support every week, her and my father. They weren’t able to be here tonight due to being exposed to the COVID virus. When they said our name, I couldn’t think about nothing but what they were doing right now, how they were feeling about it [and] being able to watch it. I just can’t wait for my mom to actually get our hands on this trophy because this is a show that means a lot to her. It really makes her smile to see people be more than an athlete, more than an entertainer. More than whatever their respective field is. She loves when people grow and people have progress… So this Mirrorball is definitely for her.”
