Found June 24, 2013 on RealGM:
Marcus Fizer had a two-day workout with the Golden State Warriors last week as he attempts an NBA comeback at 34. Fizer is hoping that his physicality and Christian faith will give him a place with the Warriors as a veteran forward. "I ran from it and fought it for so long, but each and every time I chose to do things my way, God always showed up and let me know that it wasn't about me - over and over and over again," Fizer said. "I finally got myself to realize that my purpose in life is bigger than what I want to do. It's to help the people who are coming up behind me. "I didn't approach the game the right way. I didn't approach my job the right way. If I can be here to help those guys not go the way I did, I'll take that 100 times out of 100." The Warriors have one of the ubiquitously religious locker rooms in the NBA, led by Mark Jackson. Fizer was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls.
