Shawn Marion Declines ‘Dancing With the Stars’

The first time an athlete ever appeared on “Dancing with the Stars”, it was a big deal. But since then, it’s become the norm as we have even seen athletes win the competition. But the next winner will not be Shawn Marion…

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.
