    Marion can EAD. I remember that second half of Game 5 in 2007, where he went TOTAL TORTILLA like he ALWAYS did when the chips were down. You can go back to that thread and I was probably shredding him for shrinking in the moment.

    And of course it came down to what Steve did... that's because MARION NEVER DEVELOPED ANY HANDLES or any kind of post game and couldn't take advantage of them putting Tony Parker on him.

    Dude is all over the place. If he was like that behind the scenes it must’ve been exhausting.

    First off, Marion would routinely shrink when it counted. Year after year, he would disappear. That said, I do think he is right. San Antonio would beat us year after year doing the exact same thing, and D'Antoni would refuse to adjust.

    Agree. Just bc matrix is wrong about what he was capable of and shirking his role in the failures doesn’t make his rant about Dantoni any less accurate.

    He had me confused by saying the Suns should have won the next year, not the year Amare got suspended in the Spurs series. That next year they lost to the Spurs in the first round. He did say the year Dallas went to the finals though which was a year prior. He's really all over the place with how he talks.

    I definitely noticed that as well.

    yes, DA didn’t make adjustments. Water is wet. Thanks for the rant Shawn.

    I'd say to Shawn, if you're getting open, taking and making shots in the second half, Steve Nash gets you the ball.
