Joshua Ian Shipp (born February 14, 1986) is an American former professional basketball player who last played for Brose Baskets of the Basketball Bundesliga. Shipp played college basketball for the UCLA Bruins. He has played professionally in Turkey and Germany.
Under coach Harvey Kitani, Shipp led the Fairfax Lions to the California Division I state title. As a junior, he helped lead his team to the City finals and received All-State underclassman and All-City second-team honors.
Shipp underwent surgery on his right hip on September 28, 2005, and missed the first 11 games. After playing four games, he missed the rest of the season with continual pain in his right hip.
In his senior year with the Bruins, Shipp was the only player to start in all 39 games, playing in 1,269 minutes (32.5 mpg, 3rd all-time on UCLA's single-season list). Shipp was named the Bruins' co-Most Valuable Player (MVP) along with Darren Collison. He ended his career at UCLA No. 32 on the career list with 1,254 points. Shipp and fellow senior teammates Collison and Alfred Aboya finished their careers as the winningest class in UCLA history with 123 wins. The distinction was relative, as John Wooden's legendary teams played shorter seasons and freshmen were ineligible.
In October 2014, he signed a try-out contract for three weeks with Brose Baskets in Germany. According to his team he won't play any league games, but will be tested in training only. On November 10, 2014, after he passed the three-week tryout with the German powerhouse, he signed a contract for the rest of the 2014–15 season. He replaced an injured Carlon Brown. On January 11, 2015, he was released by Brose Baskets after playing 10 games in Basketball Bundesliga and seven in Eurocup.
