It’s been a bizarre 48 hours for the Cleveland Cavaliers and their fans. On Wednesday, Iman Shumpert, who is recovering from a groin injury, helped his wife deliver a baby after she went into labor in the bathtub.
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💂🏾🐞👶🏾
Still, no word yet from the NBA commisioner’s office on whether Dr. Shumpert will be credited with an assist.

Last night, US PGA champion Jason Day and his wife — one month removed from giving birth to her second child — were seated in the first row at the Cavaliers game. LeBron James chased down a ball in the fourth quarter and crashed into the couple, sending Ellie Day to the ground, and ultimately on a stretcher to the hospital.
Ellie Day I hope you're doing okay! My apologies! Hope u guys come back to another game soon. Love LJ!

Day was released from the hospital Friday morning with concussion symptoms, but was otherwise doing remarkably well after serving as the crash pad for the 6-foot-8, 205-pound James.

Earlier in the fourth quarter, shortly after Kevin Love completed a four-point play, he slapped hands with Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel who was sitting courtside.
To recap, Shumpert delivered a baby, James took out Jason Day’s wife, and Love showed some love to Johnny Manziel.
