Correcaminos de Colon's Terrence Shannon making age a timeless number - Nov 7, 2018

Shannon
PANAMA-LPB. - Terrence Shannon (203-F-79, college: Elgin CC) speaks to Basketball Insiders about his unconventional path to the NBA, NBA G-League and International stardom.

The 38-year-old, who now is in Correcaminos de Colon' starting lineup, is currently averaging an impressive 16.0 points, 9.1 rebounds on 52.00% shooting from the field. In just 14 games to start the 2018-2019 season Shannon has recorded 8 double doubles. His top performance came last week versus Tores. Shannon recorded a game high 28 points while pulling down 15 rebounds in a 83-70 victory.

It would seem that international star Terrence Shannon has always been in the spotlight; but this would be the furthest thing from the truth.

A player's path to the pros usually follows the same formula: A star in high school, a strong college career, and then eventually being selected in the NBA Draft. However, there are times when a player's path is more unconventional. In the case of Terrence Shannon, he definitely took the path less traveled.

He attended Thornwood High School in South Holland IL, where he was named All-league selection. He finished his senior year in 1997 putting up 18.0 points per game and 11.5 rebounds per game.

He played a year at Elgin Community College, where he was one of the top players in the country. Shannon would decide to leave school and make the big push for the pros.

'It was always a dream of mine, it's also why I left school that I started at,' Shannon told Basketball Insiders. 'I had bigger dreams of playing professional and potentially the NBA. So that was a dream of mine. I never thought the journey would go like this but it is how it is.'

Shannon would be drafted by the CBA and minor league power USBL in 2001. His best season in the minors came with the Brevard Blue Ducks (NBA affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies). He would go on to average a team high 15 points and 8 rebounds. Shannon would grab the attention of NBA scouts in just two short seasons in the minors. The summer of 2002 Shannon received the call from the Memphis Grizzlies to join the Rocky Mountain Revue in Vegas. He would shock the world by averaging an impressive 11 points and 6 rebounds in 7 games. The Grizzles would then send the young forward to the Roanoke Dazzle of the NBA Gleague. In 50 games Shannon averaged 14.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2 blocks. He would later be named All-NBA GLeague Team.

For the next two years Shannon would spend his professional experience with the NBA G-League affiliates. His strong play in the G-League was what caught the Detroit Pistons' attention, enough to give him a of 10-day contracts offer, and then one for the rest of the season.

'It was a perfect spot to start up my professional career The G-League is a place to develop your game, and I think I developed a lot,' Shannon told Basketball Insiders. 'I learned a lot about the game, and I think it was a good place for me to start just out of a small college.'

Although he made a strong impression on the Detroit Pistons, Shannon found out that nothing is ever guaranteed in the NBA. Due to a roster crunch when the team drafted Cinncy star Jason Maxiell over the summer, the Detroit Pistons ended up cutting him. He didn't stay unemployed for long though. Before he had a chance to hit the open market, the next stop would be the world.

Shannon would then sign his first international contract but not the last. Over the next 14 seasons Terrence Shannon would play in 16 countries including China, Korea, Japan, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Lebanon, Israel, Spain, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Panama, Iran, Mexico, Chile, Uruguay and UAE. He has a career average of 21 points and 9.8 rebounds over the 15 year career. He won seven scoring titles, four time MVP and five championships. His best season would come in 2008 for Inchon ET Land Black Slamer of South Korea. In 65 games Shannon averaged a league best 27.2ppg, 10.5rpg, 3.8apg, 2FGP: 56.0%, 3PT: 36.0%, FT: 71.0%. He would go on to be named AsiaBasket.com All KBL Player of the Year.

With all the experience and great numbers; the most impressive thing about Terrence Shannon is his Vince Carter like athleticism. Shannon is by far the fan favorite in any country he appears in. NBA combine listed his vertical leap at 41 inches. Now at 38, Shannon still has the same exact leaping ability which wows the general mangers and players across the globe.

Below you can find a list of all the international awards Terrence Shannon has won over his 17 years professional career.
