Marion Is Kind Of An Idiot

Shawn Marion really is kind of an idiot.  In case you’ve been on vacation this past week, Shawn Marion has publicly announced that he wants out of Phoenix.  Yes, this is the same place and team that holds Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire.  Why you might ask?  Pretty much because Marion’s not getting any love.  It sounds to me like he used to be an attention kid growing up.  Why would he ever ask to be off a team that is soooo close to a championship?  After signing Grant Hill, the Suns seem like a front runner, more so than ever to win the west.  In a weird way, I understand where Marion is coming from.  He doesn’t receive very much credit for his production.  His numbers speak volumes, yet the first two names when mentioning Phoenix is Steve and Amare.  He’s nearly the Alfred to the Batman and Robin tandem (okay, not that extreme).  But at the end of the day, Marion will likely be traded to a team that isn’t in half as good as a position as the Suns are.  It’s just not worth it to move.  If his ultimate goal is to win a championship, he would stay with Phoenix.  If he does get traded, I would expect his numbers to actually decrease.  Marion is a guy that is not a first option in an offense.  Rather, he gets his points and rebounds off of loose balls.  He picks up the garbage.  Without Steve Nash driving the lane, he won’t be as open.  As well, Amare pulls defenses onto him, often creating open looks for Marion cutting into the lane.  With any other team, these type of points and boards won’t be gained.  I think he needs to take a step back and look at the big picture.  He’s still young (ish), making a boat load of money, and might possibly win a championship this year.  Why Leave?!?!  What An Idiot.
