Iman Shumpert Defines 'Swag' And Its Recent Derivatives

This whole New York Post interview is just out of control in the best of ways.

Q: Define "swag" for me.

A: Oh, I’m off swag. I say "sway" now. I kept saying swag, swag. Instead of saying bye on the phone I would say swag. I was saying it all the time and being funny, and then like I wasn’t even trying to be funny anymore and I couldn’t stop saying it. Then I changed s-w-a-g to s-c-h-w-a-g just so I could sorta have my own thing. But then it was just so many people saying it that I just got so sick of hearing it. ... Kanye says it’s cray instead of crazy in one of his songs, so I said, "My swag is cray, so I’m gonna call it sway." So now I sway. You don’t walk in the room swagging, I walk in swaying.

Iman Shumpert is the greatest. And he's single, ladies, but anyone who'd like to spend the rest of her life swayin' with Shump had better remember what he wants in a woman. "They have to be a taco-making maniac," he said.
