Stewart, who was bleeding from the blow, tried to escape from teammates and chase James down, but was eventually stopped by security and teammates. At one point, Stewart looked to be calm and complying and then attempted to dash away from security to confront James again.

NBA champion Iman Shumpert has added another trophy to the collection: the Mirrorball Trophy awarded to the winner of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Shumpert, who played primarily for the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers during his 10-year career, became the first ex-NBA player to be victorious in the show’s 30 seasons.
