Shawn's successful basketball season mentioned in Marlon's post comes only months after the comedian got into an argument with one of the referee's at his son's game.

It is reported, Marlon, was caught on video cursing at a referee over the treatment of his son's team. Other parents could be heard in the background cheering him on as he went on a tirade.
