Diaw is an awesome talent for his size. I wish somebody could figure out how to get him to play like he did tonight every night. He has the talent. What an enigma .

I'm glad I was only right about Bogut's career high and not that the Bucks would win. I watched them play against the Lakers last night as well, and I must say that they are a pretty good team. Lets hope that the can catch the Hawks.

West race is pretty tight, very little margin for slipping... If Mavs win tonight, they will take the first place since they beat us.

Marion doesn't attempt long distance buzzer beaters, its hard on the 3pt %. knowwhatimsayin?

Unbelievable. Just back from a shoulder/elbow injury on his shooting arm and he only took 7 shots all night. The 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks don't count. And the next post says he didn't shoot because he's "selfish."

Boris played his best game of the season tonight. He has been bashed badly on these boards and most of the time has deserved it wtih subpar play. There are a lot of Boris haters but we are all Suns fans. There does not appear to be a trade out there that can improve the team. Our best hope is that Boris will play better. He will get more chances to play with hill out. He is the most frustrating player on the team. He does not suck but we know how well he is capable of playing but has not shown it. Tonight he looked like he was worth that contract. He was making all the righ decisions and when he puts his mind to it he has excellent moves to the hoop

how am I hating on him. I think its funny because I've seen him do it several times. Its either because he doesn't want to mess up his percentage or he dribbles with his head down and has no idea how much time is left.

I'm pointing out something that was funny to me. Not calling the guy selfish.

exactly, he tried acting like he didn't know the buzzer was that soon. selfish....

I didn't mention haters, but the shoes appear to fit -- damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Keeping some perspective on it, the anti-Marion mindset is so relentless and spiteful it's getting almost comical. In a juvenile sort of way ........... "knowwhatimsayin?"

I'd take issue with that comment as well. I've seen all but two games this year, either at USAC or at home. C'mon now, Marion almost never dribbles the ball upcourt "with his head down" and then spots up for a three, he usually hands it off ASAP. I don't even think he likes shooting the 3's all that much. Most of his attempts are made when he gets the ball and he's open. Last night he had one open and passed it because he knew his shot was off. Selfish SOB.

forget the elbow injury, he ALWAYS does that. i like marion, but he is selfish.

he once told ESPN the mag that Nash might be the MVP of the league, but he is the MVP of this team. he demanded to be traded because he doesn't think he is respected, he is the highest payed player on the team, he makes the all star team every year, and his jersey's are every where around teh stadium and this city.

and again...

In the last 3-4 years, Suns record without Marion implies that HE IS atleast a co-MVP in this team...



Marion is very important for the Suns.. so he is not lying...

***The numbers are all correct except for Marion. Your Suns All-Time Regular Season Leaders page is clearly noted "heading into the 05-06 season." None of the other four were Suns after that. They included Marion's 290 attempts throughout the 05-06 season and his total should actually be 1196. You can check it out, I'm not making that up.

Even so, numerical "leaders" are misleading since longevity is a factor. So your stats showing him as 3-happy are rather skewed since years spent on the team prior to 05-06 do make a difference.

Person (3 years) = 331/year
Majerle (8 years) = 275/year
Chapman (4 years) = 224/year
JJ (4 years) = 222/year
Marion (6 years) = 199/year

It would be interesting to break it down more but I'm not that bored. Since he rarely misses games and plays heavy minutes, I suspect Marion's 3pt attempts per game and per minutes played might strike you as even less hilarious, especially since they've decreased significantly in 05-06 and 06-07.
