The Dallas Mavericks‘ Shawn Marion is a defensive guru for the club. So it is surprising to see him get dunked on by an unknown collegiate player.
The description of the video reads:
Shawn Marion (Dallas Mavericks) aka “The Matrix”, a 4-time NBA All-Star, made his first appearance into his first Chi-League Pro-Am game and promptly got dunked on by UW-Green Bay’s 6’7″ forward Alphonso McKinnie.
Thanks to everyone at Whitney Young High School and the Nike-Jordan Chi-League Pro-Am.
Shawn Marion, who is from Chicago, was making an appearance at the Chi-Leage Pro-Am game for the first time. It also might be his last visit, he’ll likely want to stay off YouTube highlight reels.
Marion seemingly was smiling afterwards and taking the incident in stride knowing how excited McKinnie must be. The best way to handle an embarassing moment like that is to embrace it.
Unless of course your LeBron James, in which case you’ll have Nike go around and destroy all the evidence, or collect all the videos to protect it form every hitting the internet.
