I would like to see Shawn Marion being the next Shawn Marion. Labelling a certain player as the next (whoever) entices them to self fufilling prophecy and not mention limiting. Shawn can only be Shawn because he is Shawn.

But the similarities between Pippen and Marion are undeniable. Both can (and have) defended against players from PG to C. Both are athletic. Both are strong rebounders (though according to stats, Marion has the edge). Both are solid passers. Both are good handlers (though I think Pippen may edge him out). In short, they are versatile.

Just my opinion. So take it with a grain of salt.

i love marion.the reason i wouldn't trade him is if we don't have him, we'd have to play against him...i'd much rather have his defensive force and his rebounding and his alley oops safely on our team than to have to fear him

I wouldn't trade Marion. He is the Suns leading rebounder, a good scorer and plays solid defense. Look for him to have an outstanding playoff run and I think this just may be the Suns year.

I've really soured on Marion this season, moreso in the past 3 months or so. Not that I think he sucks, but more because of the things he can't do. Not being able to create his own shot, dribble or pass the ball effectively is really getting to me. Watching him chuck up an airball or two a game really pisses me off was well. I'm tired of his attitude. He has become one of the more overrated players in the game. It's amazing how he went from being really underrated, to this. He is perhaps the most glorified role player to ever play the game. He deserves the all-star bids, but he's not a player who you could take from the Suns, and build around as your go-to guy. He needs to have someone there to take the pressure off of him. If we could get KG from the Wolves for him and whatever else, I'm all for it. Let him go be the first option on that team and see what happens.

In all fairness though, whoever said that he needs Nash to spoonfeed him is wrong. He's put up these numbers almost his entire career. He doesn't get his point soley on alley-oops and set plays. He gets a lot of those points himself. The problem with him though, is that you can't give him the ball on the wing or whatever, and ask him to go one on one and get you a shot. You can't count on him in big games either.

I'm glad that guy asked about forcing a trade. Maybe it'll get him to think about it a little bit. I've often wondered this season if he isn't giving it his all. The past 2 months he has not been himself. He's not being vocal at all on the floor, doesn't really smile or show any emotion like he usually does, and in interviews, he doesn't like to prop his teammates that much like he used to. Something about him is noticeably different, and I don't like it. The only thing I agree with him about is his defense. He is overlooked by the league in that category. I don't know how he's never made an all defensive team.

If he leaves, I'll wish him the best, but I won't miss him. I want him to go see how tough it really is to be a first option on a team when he lacks the abilty to be that guy. Please, by all means, leave here and pursue YOUR interests. It'll be a mistake, but if that's how you need to learn Shawn Marion, then do what you need to do. You'll soon miss being able to have all attention for failure deflected off you because of higher profile players such as Amare and Nash usually get the majority of the blame.

Come to PHX KG!!!
Posted this on the main board, but thought it would be good here too.

MArion is not the problem,his contract is bloated tho.

if you could package Kurt THomas, and Diaw for a young Big guy, it would put Amare at natural PF, Marion at his excelling position SF.

Marion, Diaw, Thomas, Banks, and Phoenix's late first round pick for Garnett.

I hope that can happen but we might have to substitute Diaw or Thomas with Atlantas pick.

lets wish the Wolves are willing to take in all those players... Marion yes... but he's not really a scorer... who's gonna take care of the scoring load? Ricky Davis and Randy Foye???!!! lol...

Diaw would actually fit in nice with the Wolves... but i cant bear to see him go...

Thomas would be okay in the low post with Mark Blount... offence + defence... but he's age-ing...

Banks would NOT fit in the Wolves one bit... the Wolves should be getting rid of their over-populated PGs and not taking more in... will do bad for Foye, Mike James, Hudson, Jaric etc etc...

so... i don't think it's gonna take place...
