Cedric Ceballos and Shawn Marion are a team of Retired NBA Players on The Amazing Race 30.
Despite their seeming physicality as former NBA players, Cedric & Shawn regularly found themselves near the bottom of the pack due to Cedric's age and history of physical ailments, as well as their difficulty with mental tasks, slowing them down. They came in last in the third leg after Cedric struggled with a physical Roadblock, but were spared by a Non-Elimination Leg. In the following leg, they got lost while navigating early on, followed by Cedric again struggling with another Roadblock. Despite finishing their Speed Bump quickly, these struggles, along with losing time while finding the location of the Pit Stop, put them in the last round of the Head-to-Head. They lost their only shot at safety when Lucas & Brittany beat them in the final round, eliminating Cedric & Shawn in 9th place.
