probably have an idea on it. Or maybe you know this is going to happen.
Yes. Shawn Marion wants out of the Phoenix Suns. And the sad thing is
he wants to be traded to Kobe’s
team. Well, every basketball blog is writing an article about it. This
one is no different. The only difference is this one will not give a
conclusion or suggestions. Well, who is Shawn Marion? Shawn Marion was
drafted by Phoenix
way back the late 90’s. He has been the Suns’ stalwart since then. The
problem is he was never really became the foundation of the team. He
was just a part of the crews who will be complementing the stars. In
short, a merely complementary player (an all star complementary player
if you will). He was there with all stars like Kidd, Marbury, and now Nash. And the thing is, he was always a solid player. Now
what does he want? Ok, it’s simple what he wants, after all is just a
contract extension. Problem is, this is the only thing that the Phoenix
Suns can never give (since they are a “thrifty team”). I read the Dee
Brown’s blog in hoopshype regarding the Matrix. I can’t contain my
emotions (emotions to laugh). It’s true, Dee has a point. Don’t wake up, if you do, you’ll just be disappointed. If you’ll ask me, is there any player better than Marion?
Frankly yes, but as someone who can replace him in the system of Mike
D’Antoni? There is none like him. No, I’m not speaking too early but,
they say Kirilenko can be a stopgap, another one is Odom, but the Suns’
chance of winning a championship is slim. Nash is slowly becoming old. Phoenix is a “Steve Nash Team”, Nash will take them to anywhere. This
drama continues. A player who wants extension (or to be traded), a
management who cannot give an extension (or a trade anew), and a team
that will never flourish keeping a player that is unhappy with them.
Downfall of Suns? You judge.
