funny thing is Jordan, Bird, Magic, any real "legend" of the game never wasted time telling everyone how GOOD they were or how THEY were the man, they let their PLAY do all the talking, they let the WINNING and the TITLES do all their talking.

MARION can talk all the me, myself, and I he wants, bottom line, who has the rings?! you have to EARN the right to talk the kinda chit he has been talking the last few years!!

The Suns current roster includes two players whose "I, ME MYSELF mentality" far surpasses Marion's. His complaints here were about lack of appreciation--not about money, and he never *****ed about practice (nice bit of fiction there). During his time here he never dogged it--played harder and more minutes than anyone and sat out something like 13 games in 8 years.

If I were Marion I'd take less money anywhere BUT Phoenix--the Suns wouldn't be able to come up with a 'stimulus package' big enough to make me even think about coming back to this train wreck.
