Shawn Marion's Fly Motorcycle-Car Demands Your Attention

Jesse DorseyFeatured ColumnistMay 20, 2013

Shawn Marion's Dallas Mavericks failed to make the playoffs, so he's found himself with a ton of freedom for the first time since the end of the 2009 season.

He's been hanging around, enjoying the summer sun and driving this kick-ass motorcycle-car.

I'm a bit conflicted when it comes to Marion's wheels.

On the one hand, it's basically a three-wheeled motorcycle. In most circumstances, those are reserved for the fat dudes hanging at the back of a motorcycle gang or guys afraid of going for the real deal.

On the other hand—just look at this freaking thing.

It seems to be a Thoroughbred Stallion Trike, although I'm not sure what's going on with the Bentley logo on the seat in this picture:

In case you were wondering, you can pick one of these bad boys up for right around $30,000.

But you'll pick up a lot of that dropped coin on increased fuel efficiency. Forty-five miles to the gallon on the highway is nothing to scoff at.

Maybe it's just the soon-to-be-retired NBA player's equivalent of a golf cart used to drive around a retirement community. Marion is starting to get old, so he just might be getting ready to settle down and cruise around in this souped-up golf cart.

Photos of Marion running around Dallas in this three-wheeled creation popped up all weekend long. I mean, how could anybody resist grabbing a photo of not only this cartorcycle, but the very noticeable Mavericks forward throttling it around?

Marion is a man who definitely has an affinity for cars, spotted in everything from a Lincoln Continental to a yellow Maserati.

Now he's apparently adding Bentley cartorcycles to the list.
