Shawn Marion Turns Down ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Offer

Hey, not everyone is busy picking up new hobbies as the lockout carries on. As TMZ reports: “Dallas Mavericks star Shawn Marion isn’t taking any chances with the NBA lockout — in fact, he just turned down ‘Dancing with the Stars’ … to make sure he’s free to practice with his team this fall. Sources close to Shawn tell TMZ, “Dancing” sent him an official offer to appear on the show, but the NBA champ wants to make sure he’s 100% available in case the lockout ends early … so it’s a no go. ‘Dancing’ would end in November and NBA season usually starts in October — which could put Marion in a difficult position if the upcoming season isn’t put on ice.”

    He couldn’t do any of the lifts required in dancing… he doesn’t rise his elbows above his waist.

    It’s not “Dancing with Role Players” after all…

    ^ Matrix was a big reason why the Mavs won a title. What game were you watching.

    People are always using the term role player as if its a curse, I mean really how many real star are there in the league? I guess that makes everyone else role players.
