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.

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.

Nothing wrong with being on DWTS....I don't get your point. I might even watch the show, if they're able to get a basketball player on there.

I hate reality shows in general but if the lockout ends before the season starts(big IF) this would get in the way of the season so why would a player do it during that time. Now if it was well into the offseason I'd get that.

On a related note Tyson Chandler switches from roll on to spray on deodorant. This Lockout needs to end.

My wife likes DWTS, so I watch, too.

Clyde Drexler has been on. Several NFL players have been on including Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, Jason Taylor, Ochocinco (and I think others). They tend to go a long way through the competition, and Emmitt actually won.

I would like to see Reggie on DWTS. He has the right personality for it, and, if he committed fully to it, is the type who would probably get pretty far in the competition.
