On your mark. Get set. Go!
The upcoming season of the CBS global obstacle course show "The Amazing Race" is going to feature a pair of contestants familiar to NBA fans: retired All-Stars Shawn Marion and Cedric Ceballos.
Thirty-nine-year-old Marion retired from the NBA after spending the 2014-15 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was a four-time All-Star and pivotal member of both the "Seven Seconds or Less" Suns of the mid-2000s and the Dallas Mavericks' 2011 championship campaign.
Ceballos, 48, played 11 seasons in the Association from 1990 to 2001, being named to his lone All-Star team with the Lakers in 1995, but is perhaps best remembered for his iconic blindfolded dunk in the 1992 Slam Dunk Contest.
If the success of Marion and Ceballos on the hardcourt is any indication, the other pairings on "The Amazing Race" will have their work cut out for them.
