CLEVELAND, June 30 (UPI) -- Cleveland might have abstained from mirroring Golden State's championship parade jabs from last season, but the ripples are still in the water.
On Tuesday, Iman Shumpert was the one throwing rocks.
While working at his youth basketball camp in Oak Park, Illinois, the Cavaliers guard was asked about guarding Stephen Curry during the NBA Finals.
Records get broken. Hard work pays off. Hate drives u. Social media is not real. Dreams come true! 2016 Champs. Enjoy summer CLEVELAND! 💂🏾🏆— Iman Shumpert I (@imanshumpert) June 21, 2016
Shumpert took advantage of the softball question: "What's it like to guard Steph Curry?" His response during the question and answer session was simply: "It felt good to beat him," according to the Pioneer Press.

Shumpert celebrated his 26th birthday last Sunday. He also threw some shade at the Warriors on Twitter last week.
"Records get broken," Shumpert tweeted June 21. "Hard work pays off. Hate drives u. Social media is not real. Dreams come true! 2016 Champs. Enjoy summer CLEVELAND!"
