Default Marion Open To Long-Term Contract With Heat

WOW ... I honestly have to say that I'm surprised by that. But as long as Wade is there with him, I guess I could see why Marion would want to stay.

Pat Riley believes that Marion and Dwyane Wade could be the new Michael Jordan - Scottie Pippen guard-forward tandem of the NBA.
