Default Banks Making Good Impression

Banks making good impression
Sept. 22, 2006



Quote:
Suns fans' lasting impressions of Marcus Banks ultimately will prove most important. In the meantime, the first impression Banks is making in Phoenix bodes well.


He was here to play on the first day of informal workouts Sept. 11.

He often stays after scrimmages to work on his shooting with Suns assistant Phil Weber, the resident shot doctor who helped Joe Johnson and Boris Diaw. Banks' powerful upper body and quick dribble speed enable him to finish drives to the basket. And best of all, Banks is here to study the best at his position. advertisement



"I'm learning by the visual and watching the things that Steve (Nash) does in certain situations," said Banks, who is expected to ease Nash's burden at the point. "He's one of the reasons I came early. He's a guy you love to be around. He tells you like it is. I'm here to learn - whatever he can do to help me."

Good to hear. Banks will be a vital cog in this championship run. Gotta run the team smoothly enough to get Nash the rest he needs.

Where do you work?

If you get the chance again I would advise that you start a conversation with him. Always a great experience in talking to your favourite athletes.

i work at costco, he shops there alot during the season apparently but ive only worked there the past three months...i wanted to start a conversation with him i even thought of things to say but when i got up to him i didnt even make i contact and just asked for an autograph, which was also funny cuz he said " what do you want me to sign?" and i was wearing my suns wristband and i said "my wristband" and he goes...."i cant sign that" i guess cuz it was too small and then he took this little cardboard poster of him out of his trunk and signed it...pretty cool experience i just felt dumbfounded ...ill c him again soon

Ok, I had to come out from lurker status to reply to this. Shawn has been my favorite Sun since he was drafted, he is my "Kobe," but this is a little weird to me. He had posters of himself in his trunk? Like, was his trunk full of them or...?

That's cool that you met him, though. At least he wasn't an ass, or was he?

Great job picking up Banks...not only is he a good back-up, but he's young talent and has potential to develop into something real special. Speedy guys in the NBA usually don't just disappear.
