Default Re: Now that we have Shawn Marion, What would you rather???

Marion also said after the game that he cut to the basket multiple times throughout the game and was wide open but Jose missed him due to infamiliarity with his game (it being his first game and all) and that they have been talking about what each of them like to do, so his numbers could have easily been better and will get better as he plays more.

All in all a pretty damn good first outing, especially with his team-high assist numbers which were unexpected.

Yeah the raps didn't look much to Marion. At times they seemed to forget he was even part of the team, he was posting guys up and setting screens and rolling off but quite a few times I saw other Raps run to the exact same spot Marion was standing then Jose went to that side and then the raps were all bunched up with nowhere to go.

It's gonna take a practice or two to get Marion into the flow of the Raps and Vice Versa. Let's see where they are after the hme and home vs the Knicks.

True. I'd expect at least a nice lob pass or two to Marion once he gets a practice in with Calderon.
