Default Marion Is 'Pissed'

RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Marion Is 'Pissed Off' In Toronto


Will this spur a winning streak that will catch us up to snag the 8th spot?... and/or spark a flame under some of our players... ie Bosh to play with some more desire?...

or

NOTA (none of the above)

He should put up, at least Pops is working hard out there, Marion is just going through the motions just like the rest of the team.

It's way too late to be finding "the fire" - whatever that means.

Its nice hes pissed.

Now if more than 1 player out there in any of the lineups busted their asses throughout the game the other guys will follow. Its human nature. Come out of the gates strong and itll continue throughout the game.

So they should continue to sleepwalk through the remainder of the season?
It might be too late for it to make a difference in the playoff race, but it's not too late to try and compete and finish on a positive note.
The last thing these fuckers need to do is just pack it in. Play with pride, play hard, get after it, and put on a show for the fans. We deserve it.

I heard that 'Brass Rail' will be closed for a month due to renovation... maybe, that's why he is pissed.

I agree - but I was responding to Marion and mostly the original post, in which the 8th seed was touted as a possible result.

And I could deal with them tanking personally. Not by packing it in as individuals, but by limiting the playing time of the starters, and letting the competing happen on a more developmental scale.

The way I see it is if BC wants to keep the "core" of this team together then the development should be letting them play out the string together. Possibly develop some chemistry for next year. (If that's the plan, ie: re-signing Marion.)

I think he needs to take a long hard look in the mirror before he starts calling out others.

First, I find it hard to believe that the Raptors will be able to re-sign Marion,
Second, responding to your earlier post I think as a fan I would like to see the Raptors lose out so at least they get some more balls in the lottery.
Third, BC needs to gut the team and start rebuilding. Chris Bosh is going to be gone after next season so they might as well trade him now while he has high value and get some young players or draft picks.
Fourth, the Raptors require a slashing player soooooo bad, nobody on the Raps tries to get to the rim (except Bargnani lately), even Bosh is beginning to fall in love with his jumper... The Raptors need more players like Graham who just goes out there and works hard. Less useless players like Kapono and Voskuhl.

Oui, mais eux pourrait encore donner l'aspect qu'ils essayent.

Marion n'a pas été la même depuis qu'il a rencontré ce danseur exotique.

ok, so every player is calling out the teamin the media.

so which one is the real Macoy?

Which players aren't trying?

Calderon says he is trying hard, playing through injury.
Bosh is always on the MVP trek, so we know he's saying he's tired of "guys not playing hard"

Marion says he's pissed.

Bargnani doesnt talk. So it has to be him.

Pops is new, but he tries hard, we can see that, and he has called um al out too.

Kapono says nothing.

Parker says nothing.

Hump just laughs cuz he's getting a free pass while being hurt. But he tried pretty hard. And he nows he's an allstar. so who is it?

Just reaffirming that Marion is all about himself like most of us originally thought. Ah well, only a couple more games with him and then he's not our problem anymore. We have bigger ones to worry about anyways.

he was only ever cap space relief.

look at it this way, the only difference between Marion and Mourning, is that Mourning allowed toronto's other bigs court time by not showig up to mail it in.


Oh yes, I forgot, most of you all still hate alonzo cuz you think he was supposed to come to toronto in the Carter trade.

Toronto manaement knew before the trade he wasn't gonna report, thet didn't care, it was all about freeing up some cash down the road. Mind you, I still hate the guy.

It still makes me sick to think that after being traded a guy can straight up refuse to play, and essentially be rewarded for it in the end. The system is a joke.
