The Cavs star was speaking with Complex when he was asked if he would boycott Yeezys after Kanye West expressed support for the President-elect.

"I understand people’s stance on Trump. I can’t get caught up in the racial, sexist bulls**t he’s got going on. That’s his personal thing, ya dig."

He added, "I do think he’s crazy -- straight up."

Complex followed up with the White House question:

Complex: "Will you go to Trump’s White House if the Cavs win the championship again this year?

Iman: "I’m not going to the White House."

As for Iman's teammate, LeBron James -- he says he's undecided about what he would do ... saying, "We’ll have to cross that road, I guess. We’ll see. I would love to have to cross that road."

Coach Allen Iverson???

Maybe ... 'cause his buddy, Tyronn Lue -- coach of the world champion Cleveland Cavs has invited his old nemesis to join his bench. 

In case you missed it, Iverson gave Lue a big shout-out during his Hall of Fame induction speech this weekend ... and said they became good friends after the legendary "step-over" at the 2001 NBA Finals. 

Iverson also mentioned in his speech that point guards seem to become the best NBA coaches -- and since A.I. played some P.G., we asked Lue if "The Answer" was a candidate for a job. 

Lue and Iverson on the sideline together? Please get matching hairdos.

Beware, Kyrie Irving ... Kenny Smith thinks a horrible breakup song should be written about you ... 'cause the ex-NBA star says Irving should be the next man up ... to date Taylor Swift.

Smith was out in L.A. when we wanted to know if it's time for the newly single T-Sweezy to give the NBA world a chance ... since it doesn't seem to be working with the actors and singers.

Kenny says YES ... and he has just the guy ... Cleveland Cavs star Kyrie Irving, who he says would be right up Swift's alley 'cause of where he's from ... and what he likes.

We're not sure if it would actually work, but one thing's for sure ... she'd be perfect for a party on Kyrie's yacht.

Shumpert told the cop he had just come from his "homegirl's house" and was going to pick up his father from the airport. 

The cop administered a field sobriety test and determined Shumpert was high. Shumpert also admitted he had smoked weed before leaving his friend's house. 

Cops searched the car and found a mason jar with marijuana. 

Cops wanted to perform a blood test on Shumpert but he refused -- claiming, "people would recognize him and it would cause a scene."

NBA Champ Dahntay Jones STORAGE WAR ... You Sold My Rare Nikes!!!

8/1/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728_dahntay_jones_shoes_launchCleveland Cavs forward Dahntay Jones added a ring in June ... but lost 400 kicks in July ... 'cause more than 200 pairs from his prized shoe collection were just auctioned off ... and he's PISSED. 

Jones kept 208 pairs of rare Nikes in a storage facility in Atlanta for years ... but not just any old kicks, some of the shoes were ultra-rare ... including sample kicks made especially for Fat Joe

But the facility claims Jones didn't keep up on the payments, so last week, they auctioned of the contents ("Storage Wars" style) ... and the winning bid was around $4,000. 

We spoke with Jones who admits he was late on his payments -- but says it was a simple mix-up that could have been easily corrected without having to unload his sneakers. 

Jones says his credit card stopped making payments to the facility due to a possible fraud alert (it happens sometimes) ... but says he contacted the facility and told them he would come up with the cash (he's reportedly made $18 mil in the NBA). 

Jones says the facility went ahead with the sale anyway ... and now, he's out 1/4 of his beloved shoe collection. He's considering legal action.

By the way, Jones says the outstanding bill was LESS THAN $400.

As for his ex-kicks ... the new owner says he plans to sell them on eBay .. and we're told they'll probably fetch a hefty return.
