After two 10-count pushes, the baby was born into her father's enormous hands. And Shumpert even used his headphones to tie off the umbilical cord while the couple waited for an ambulance to arrive.
And they named the baby girl Iman, after her father.
She'll probably have great hair.
While reaching for an out-of-bounds ball, James collided with the wife of pro golfer Jason Day.
LeBron James was trying to stop a ball at Thursday night's game in Cleveland when he toppled onto Ellie Day, the wife of Australian pro golfer Jason Day. James fell on top of her so hard that she had to be taken from the game on a stretcher.
Ellie Day was sitting courtside next to her husband at the Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cleveland Cavaliers were playing the Oklahoma City Thunder. James pushed the ball back toward the court before he fell into her and knocked her to the ground.

“He is very positive, and is already looking forward,” Mourinho’s spokesperson said.

"Each time represents for him the end of a cycle, and the opportunity to start a new one. José hopes that his future after Chelsea this time will be as successful as when he left the club in 2007," the spokesperson for Mourinho said in a statement, according to Sky News.
"He will not be taking a sabbatical, he isn't tired, he doesn't need it, he is very positive, and is already looking forward."
They noted that while Mourinho has chosen to part company with a club a number of times in his career, Chelsea are the only club that has asked him to leave.
On Thursday, Chelsea and Mourinho parted company after the champions made the worst-ever start to a defence of a Premier League crown.

"It is with great sadness that Bryony Hill and the children of Jimmy Hill have announced that Jimmy passed away peacefully today aged 87 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease," his agent Jane Morgan said in a statement. "Bryony was beside him."
Hill became a widely celebrated figure in British football after a career on the pitch and on television screens that spanned four decades.
As presenter of Match of the Day, Hill made over 600 appearances on the BBC's flagship football programme, the broadcaster said.
“Why would you just shoot at random bystanders for nothing?”
Dobson was sitting on a porch with his brother and a few friends in Knoxville when several men began randomly firing, a visibly emotional Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch said in a press conference Friday.
In the process of flinging his body over three girls to protect them from the gun fire, Dobson was shot and killed. He was the only one hit, police said.
"Why would you shoot at random bystanders for nothing?" Dobson's brother Zack Dobson told USA Today.
"He was really one of our success stories," Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero said at the press conference. "Involved in sports, a mentee of one of our organizations in town. But still he falls victim to this."
"It was good to know he was willing to protect others," Jaylin Posey, a friend of Dobson's, told CNN. "But it was sad he had to give his life for it."
According to Rausch, the shooting that caused Dobson's death was connected to two others that took place on Thursday night, one of which landed Lisa Perry, 46, in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police said Perry's son, Brandon Perry, 23, was one of the shooters involved. After Lisa Perry was shot in her household, Rausch said, Brandon and several other men drove through Dobson's neighborhood, randomly shooting.
Brandon Perry died of gunshot wounds Friday morning after crashing a car into another apartment.
Two men involved in the crash were arrested. Christopher D. Bassett, 20, was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and violation of probation, and is being held without bail. The other man was released after questioning.
"Zae, he was an awesome kid brother, awesome brother," Zack Dobson said. "Just know that I miss him. I miss my brother."
“There’s a time and a place for it,” referee Nigel Owens told BuzzFeed News.

"There are children watching at home!" Owens can be heard to say after players loudly threw expletives around the pitch.
Owens told BuzzFeed News that while he doesn't think swearing in sport is a huge problem, "we must make sure it doesn't become one".
He said that it's important to ensure that good rugby values are upheld, especially when children would be able to hear the bad language.
"It's not acceptable to swear out loud," Owens said, "especially when others watching in the ground or at home can hear you."
While Owens told us that he himself will swear from time to time, "there's a time and a place for it".
Earlier this year, Newcastle United boss Steve McLaren banned players at the Premier League football team from swearing.
His assistant Paul Simpson said that McCLaren had previously enforced a similar policy at Derby as a way of enforcing discipline, according to BBC Sport.
"If you're ranting and raving and swearing, you haven't got control," Simpson said.
"We say you are losing it so you may as well come and sit in the dugout."
Finally something good came of Dubsmash.

Point spreads, pigskin, and the pursuit of a profit: weekly football wagers from a wannabe wiseguy
This week's picks include a 3-10 team, a road favorite led by a backup quarterback in line for his first career start, and another road team traveling across the country on the heels of an embarrassing home loss.
Put that way, it sounds like a recipe for disaster. But due to the impact of public perception on NFL point spreads, it may ultimately hold enough value to cover the cost of some last-minute Christmas shopping.
The Chargers have continued to play hard despite their 3-10 record, with Philip Rivers' talent and leadership providing genuine reason to compete each week. While effort alone hasn't been enough against good opponents, it should get the job done against a poorly-coached Dolphins team.
On top of coaching and front office chaos, Miami could be in for a less-than-inspired effort after getting eliminated from playoff contention with Monday's loss to the Giants and then facing a cross-country road trip on a short week.
The biggest factor of all may be the possibility of this being the Chargers' final home game in San Diego. An era that featured legends Lance Alworth and Dan Fouts in the earlier days, LaDainian Tomlinson more recently, and beloved hometown hero Junior Seau in between, deserves a fitting ending. This shouldn't be lost on current players and it could also lead to a decided home-field advantage, with fans showing up to commemorate a run in San Diego on the verge of ending fittingly at 55 years.
The Bengals would be favored by at least a touchdown if Andy Dalton were healthy, and they might not be in worse hands with AJ McCarron under center. Brimming with confidence, McCarron brings more arm strength and arguably more upside to the table.
With a stellar supporting cast and an ideal matchup for his first career start, McCarron may have the 49ers wishing they'd made amends with their former head coach when they still had the chance.
“All you guys who wanted to talk about Cristiano Ronaldo, don’t.”
Google CEO Sundar Pichai was in India last week, where he spoke about the company's upcoming products and their plans to improve internet connectivity in India.
Speaking to Harsha Bhogle at Delhi University, he also discussed how he regularly follows cricket and football, and is a huge fan of Spanish giants FC Barcelona.
There was this fair warning from Harsha Bhogle...
But Pichai threw shade on Madrid anyway, smugly bringing up Barcelona's 4-0 thumping of the team in last month's El Clásico.
Saying goodbye to the Special One is proving difficult for some.

The FIFA and UEFA presidents were handed lengthy soccer bans by FIFA’s ethics committee Monday following corruption allegations.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter and his would-be successor, Michel Platini, have been banned from football for eight years over a suspicious $2 million payment.
The suspension, announced on Monday morning by FIFA's ethics committee, effectively ends the career of 79-year-old Blatter. It also dashes UEFA boss Platini's hopes of taking over as president of soccer's world governing body.
The ban — handed down by the adjudicatory chamber of the ethics committee — comes into effect immediately, a FIFA statement said.
The pair have been mired in corruption allegations, for which Blatter is facing criminal proceedings. Blatter has been accused of authorizing a payment of 2,000,000 Swiss francs (US$2,008,637) from FIFA to Platini in February 2011, "which had no legal basis in the written agreement signed between both officials on 25 August 1999."
The adjudicatory chamber said that Blatter was unable to offer a legal basis for the payment either in his written statement or personal statement, and the pair had therefore violated their "fiduciary duty to FIFA."
On top of the bans, Blatter has been fined 50,000 Swiss francs (US$50,218), while Platini has received a fine of 80,000 Swiss francs (US$80,349).

Speaking at a lengthy press conference in Zurich after the decision, Blatter said: "I am really sorry. I am sorry that I am still a punching ball, and sorry that I am president of FIFA as this punching ball, and I am sorry for football. I am sorry for FIFA, which I have served for more than 40 years, and sorry for the 400-plus FIFA staff. But I'm also sorry about me. How I am treated in this world of humanity."
He added he will contest the decision: "I will fight for me, and I will fight for FIFA."
He added the payment in question was part of a "so-called oral contract, or gentleman's agreement, in 1998 just after the World Cup when Platini approached me and said he would like to work for FIFA, but he is a very expensive man, but I said we cannot pay you now."
He said that the decision meant the ethics committee "denies the existence of such an agreement, but the existence of the meeting was confirmed by two meetings of the UEFA executive."
He argued that his suspension was down to an administrative issue, in that there was no written record of the agreement, but not down to an "ethics issue".
Blatter later said, "I am not ashamed. Even if I am suspended, I am still president. The committee cannot go against the president."
He added it is "absolutely wrong" that "high-level officials" can be banned from attending football matches, as it is not in the disciplinary code.
"I have never cheated with money. And now I should have given 2 million francs to buy votes. Votes from whom? I always got votes from Europe," he said.
The New York Giants wide receiver appeared to target a Panthers defender with a head-to-head hit Sunday.

The NFL announced Monday a one-game suspension for New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., one day after he accrued three personal fouls during a game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
In the third quarter of the Panthers' 38–35 victory, Beckham appeared to target Panthers cornerback Josh Norman, diving to make a helmet-to-helmet hit on the defender.
Beckham was not ejected by the officiating crew during the game and was allowed to play. With 1:51 left in the fourth quarter, Beckham caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Eli Manning that tied the game at 35–35. The Panthers won — and kept their undefeated record intact — with a game-ending field goal.
Monday afternoon Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Beckham "felt threatened" when the Panthers carried a bat onto the field for pre-game warmups. Panthers players on Twitter disputed the notion that the bat would be used to intimidate the second-year receiver.
The NFL released a statement Monday detailing the suspension:
Beckham was penalized three times for unnecessary roughness, including a late helmet-to-helmet hit against a defenseless player in which Beckham left his feet prior to contact to spring forward and upward into his opponent, lowered his helmet and initiated forcible contact with his helmet, and forcibly struck the defenseless player's head. This "blindside block" was particularly flagrant because Beckham, with a 10-yard running start, had an unobstructed path to his opponent, the position of the opponent was not impacted by any other player, and the contact with the head/neck was avoidable.
The suspension was imposed by NFL Vice President of Football Operations Merton Hanks. Hanks ruled that Beckham's actions placed his opponents at unnecessary risk of injury and should have been avoided.
In a letter to Beckham, Hanks noted, "At numerous times during yesterday's game against the Carolina Panthers, your actions placed a fellow player at unnecessary risk…and clearly did not represent the high standards of sportsmanship expected."
Beckham will reportedly appeal the suspension.
Our benevolent and wonderful lord, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, just shared the first picture of his newborn daughter, Jasmine.
It's a great picture and Jasmine is tiny and perfect, but the best part of this post is the caption. Dwayne has some advice for gentlemen everywhere.
"To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of 'being better' will never steer you wrong. Trust me I've been down this road," he wrote.
You have to "walk thru the fire" with your baby's mama, guys.
"I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible."
