Iman Shumpert Became a Father in the Most Incredible Way
On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world. She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her head...it took two ten count pushes with my fiancé playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands! Eyes full of tears and barely able to speak to the emergency operator @imanshumpert tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later. She opened her eyes right away, gazed into mine and never cried! He handed her to me wrapped in our bath towel and wiped her face for me to see what LOVE really is. She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched. Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you. #MeetTheParents we love you baby girl

The Future of Hockey Coaching
“Being able to get away from the rink and watch yourself at home, you pick up things that you normally don’t see during the game,” Kevin Hayes said. “You can’t hide on film. You realize what you do bad and what you do well. If you do something bad and you don’t see it during the game, the coaches see it. You can go home, watch the film and kind of agree with what the coaches were talking about.” The film is sorted so every player can watch each of his shifts, and it’s ready right after each game.
