Cedric Ceballos and Shawn Marion are a team of Retired NBA Players on The Amazing Race 30.
During the first leg, they nearly lost the game due to Cedric giving Shawn information during the roadblock, but they were able to make it past the first leg in 9th place. They had a reversal of fate in the second leg, finishing second. However, in the third and fourth legs of the race, Cedric participated in the Roadblock challenges but his age took its toll on him. The team finished last on a non-elimination leg for the third Pit Stop, and is then briefly stopped by a resulting Speed Bump in the next leg. Despite having a chance to stay in the game at the Head-to-Head, they lose to a struggling Lucas & Brittany, and as the last arrivals at the Leg 4 Pit Stop, they were eliminated in 9th place.
