Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion played host to a celebrity poker tournament with one hundred percent of the proceeds going to the Shawn Marion Foundation.

“The Shawn Marion Foundation benefits single families and single mothers and its great,” said Shawn Marion. “I love giving back. It’s what its about.”

“Shawn is obviously a good friend and an important part of the Mavericks,” said Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban. “Any chance I get to come out and give back to what Shawn is doing I’m going to do it.”

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban joined professional poker players Annie Duke, Maria Ho, and Tiffany Michelle at the Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma.

“I really believe in any kind of cause that helps people better themselves and make better choices for themselves,” said professional poker player Annie Duke.

“I love playing poker,” said Marion. “I play every time I get a chance.”

“I am more of a Black Jack guy because if I sit down and play poker I’m going to be there for 10 years,” said Cuban.

Even without Cuban at a table the other two hundred and fifty or so participants were all in.

“At the end of the day everyone is here to support a great cause and have some fun playing with some poker stars,” said Marion.

Hey Dallas! I am originally from Orange, California and grew up playing softball, soccer, basketball, and track. I also participated in television commercials and movies during my childhood. After graduating high school, I accepted a full scholarship to the University of Oklahoma to play softball for the Sooners. I was an elite scholar athlete all four years at University of Oklahoma. I was a 3 time All-American, 2007 Big 12 Player of the Year, and Academic All-American. I have traveled and played internationally representing the USA in Pan American Games in Hermosillo, Mexico; The Junior Olympics in Nanjing, China and The University Games in Tai’nan City, Taiwan. During my time at Oklahoma I completed an internship at KWTV News 9 in Oklahoma City, and worked as a freelance reporter for the Oklahoma High School Sports Express television show. I also worked as the Sooner Sports Network Softball Color analyst both on the radio and television. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications in 2007, and was the 7th pick in the first round of the National Pro-Fast pitch League draft. After two successful seasons with the Akron Racers I returned home to California, where I continued my career in sports broadcasting. I worked in the media department of the WNBA Los Angeles Sparks.
