While some of you are busy bashing Shawn, there may be a bigger problem brewing than Marion's contract. Bits like this, and there have been several over the season, make me really nervous. From Coro's column this morning:

<<<D'Antoni acknowledged chemistry issues. The locker room had more cliques than friction. Twelve hours after saying the Suns needed to come together, Stoudemire was a no-show for Saturday's team meeting.
"Who knows?" D'Antoni said. "He's fine. He could be playing a pickup game somewhere. He's great. He likes to give his money (for a fine) to charity, so that's good."
D'Antoni did not want to delve into the chemistry issue but used last year's elimination tears as a sign.
"This year was like, 'Daggone,' but it wasn't the same heartfelt stuff that a team should produce," he said.>>>

And what it the one major difference between this year's team and last year's team? If you all want to worry about something, worry about this.

we all love marion and would love to see him retire a sun, i completely agree with you tho rab, if management decided it was time for marion to go, the big ticket should be the only way to go, matrix and two picks and someone like james jones or marcus banks for KG and we'd be set. although it would be very sad to see the matrix go still

Just saw Amare on CH3 Sports Show with Cessmat. Nice interview and Amare did the other sports highlights, not a bad job. Cessmat asked about the team chemistry and Amare said the guys get along on the court and off the court as well -- he said "best chemistry of any team I've played on." Struck me as pretty funny since we drafted him.

I am not really a big Phoenix Sun fan, but I do like Marion's style of basketball. He's pretty much a little bit of everything. Some people forget that Marion has been part of the Sun team since 1999. Without Marion, the Sun team wouldn't be that good.

On second thought, even though they were all Suns teams, Amare may have been talking about personnel changes since last year. Maybe Banks, Marks and Piatkowski are just really fun guys. But apparently D'Antoni doesn't see the love.

Overrated, what are you talking about. Marion is the most underrated player in the league. I mean this guy is a testimate to hard work, and determination. Shawn Marion is not the biggest player,but he rebounds like a seven footer. I realize he doesnt score a lot in the playoffs, but that is only because we dont ask him to score a lot. What he brings to the table in rebounding, steals, effort, and especially defense is so valuable to our team. What other guy do you know in the league that can guard Tim duncan, and Tony
Parker in the same game.

No, he used to be one of the more underrated players in the game, but is no longer. He's actually become overrated if anything. Is he a good player? Of course, but his weaknesses can sometimes outweigh his strengths, and that's why Suns fans can get frustrated with him at times.

yup... and i feel Marion can perform very well as the main option... just look at Game 5 against the Spurs... Amare is over-shining (i've said this over and over again) Marion... he no longer fits into the Suns system i feel... i would rather get someone else who plays a different style compared to Amare...
