Angry Marion>>>Odom

Whoever said that Odom is better than Marion, has no clue on why Marion is better. And Stats matter..


Look it up on NBA.com and you'll see Marions stats before Nash are better than Odom's stats.

And the Question is...

Who would you rather have on the team? Marion or Odom?


I'd have Marion because he beats Odom in every stat section assists. Turnovers not included.

Marion is a good player, defensively and offensively. Not sure who I take if I had the choice.

And this is coming from a guy who absolutely wants odom out...Odom literally takes sh!ts on Marion.

However Marion would probably be a better fit.

Always a very invalid argument when you compare popularity votes to something else.

It's like saying Yao Ming is the best player

It's not a big difference but Marion has played his whole career in a system that was perfect for his skills and now with Nash orchestrating the offense, Marion has it perfect for him.

That system would also be perfect for Odom who has more skills than Marion and I believe Odom would be an absolute monster if he was in Marion's position.

Now true, Marion's less injury prone and more accomplished but from the skill standpoint, I think Odom is much better and would be amazing in the Suns system with Nash feeding him.

Boris Diaw was great for the Suns 2 years ago. He just showed how much you can thrive in that system as a passer.

Odom too is very versatile player and would be just amazing in the Suns system.

Marion OTOH would struggle with the Lakers halfcourt game as he always does.

Both players need to run. Marion is a better hustle guy while Odom is more skilled and talented. I think circumstances are what really counts here.

Marion is in a perfect position while Odom is not. That's what it's about IMO.
The Lakers would not improve with that move, at least Odom has some skills for the triangle although it's far from an ideal system for him.
