PLAYERS: Shawn Marion
TEAMS: Dallas Mavericks
Don’t listen to anything that Marion says, the #1 reason why he will report? Straight Cash Homie.

It’s just that simple. “At this time, I’m too old to be trying to go through and be a, you know what I’m saying, not have a chance to do anything. I’m at a point where I want to be playing for something right now.” The Mavs aren’t a great team so doesn’t make sense what he is saying, but just take it with a grain of salt.
