Default Shawn Marion turns down Dancing with the Stars

I know there's a rumor of the soon to be formerly known Ron Artest joining DWTS so one would think he'd be smart enough to turn it down like Marion then again this is Ron.

Home Shawn Marion Dancing with the Stars TMZ Sports
TMZ Sports7/31/2011 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF.NBA Star Shawn Marion
TURNS DOWN
"Dancing with the Stars"

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.

We're told Shawn is adamant ... he just doesn't wanna be caught with his pants down -- or in this case, his leotard.

Too bad, during the Finals he was dancing circles around LeBron.
His footwork would have translated well on the dance floor.

I'm expecting Artest to be the guy to go on Dancing with the Stars, although I've never watched the show, so idk much about it.

I love how a gif of him taking 3-5 steps and traveling like ****ing crazy is supporting evidence for him having good footwork. Only on ISH.

I admit, that was a nice ass move. The ref had to let that walk go, because that move was that nice. NBA refs turned into Rucker style officiating.

There's a big difference between 3 to 5 steps. So if you're going to nitpick half a step and then embellish it with 2 extra nonexistent steps, you're the one that's ****ing crazy.
