Re: OT - Marqus signs in Phillipines

Marqus is one of the faces in the NBA cares commercials. I dont think that means anything but I found it interesting they put somebody who has never played a minute in an NBA game.

Re: OT - Marqus signs in Phillipines

"Marqus was cut for failing his physical"......................................... .....(news just stops there)

So anyone have any details surrounding this, ie why did one of the most fit college basketball players I've seen fail a physical/ what's next for Marqus?

The implication (based on google translate and my limited German skills) from this article is that he simply showed up not in basketball playing shape.

Rundschau Online

The article is about the team's struggle to find a mid-season replacement for Blakely on short notice. The google-translated paragraphs that relate to Blakely are below. For those that haven't experienced the joy of Google translate and language translation in general, the bolded headline is a bit of a shocker...

Quote:
"The new man must be fully in the juice"

"Now we go our list of possible candidates again have to delete some names but because the players have since come across elsewhere, other names are new to it because they have become free," the painstaking research work described Koch. Since the time these days is that many clubs still make changes to their squad, the situation is constantly in flux.

On one aspect Koch now wants to put the experience with Blakely particular importance: "It must be a man who is currently in full juice It makes no sense to bring in someone who has not played for months and at the still conditional basis. be placed "would, according to Koch. Whether search, check and medical check up to the next scheduled game against Trier on Sunday (17 clock, Telekom Dome) can go on the stage? Koch is skeptical: "That will be difficult."

Makes sense I guess, if he wasn't working out and training properly. Seems like a long time since he was waived by Clippers in training camp until now, so definitely possible.

Marqus's post- UVM pro career doesn't seem like it's gone as it should. He should try and speak with Coppenrath to figure out what he's done right, maybe he would be willing to be a mentor.

Re: OT - Marqus signs in Phillipines

Marqus, after the abortive first attempt to sign with a German team (Bonn) has now signed with Neckar Riesen ("Giants") Ludwigsburg, at least until the end of the season ("after he was killed at the end of December League rival Telekom Baskets Bonn by the medical check", per Google translation).

He seems to be off to a good start, and coach John Patrick had nice things to say about him. The photo shows him wearing no. 22 and is captioned "ein Kraftpaket mit Defensivqualitäten" ('a powerhouse with defensive qualities'). http://www.lkz.de/sport/lokalsport_a...id,109925.html

There's a Meet & Greet with Marqus as part of fan activities on Jan 24.

Hope his luck is finally changing!

Re: OT - Marqus signs in Phillipines

Glad to see that Marqus, after getting killed, is back fully in the juice.

Saw on Facebook that he just got a new Range Rover, guess he's not roughing it too bad.

Re: OT - Marqus signs in Phillipines

Only one game played so far -- 3 points in 16 minutes of action, but I'm sure there's plenty of rust (not fully back in the juice yet!).

The boxscore for his first game is here --> Neckar Riesen vs s. Olivier

They are currently at the all-star break, so the next game for Neckar isn't until January 26th. The full schedule is here --> 2012-13 Neckar Riesen Ludwigsburg schedule, so you can follow them for the rest of the season.

Re: OT - Marqus signs in Phillipines

After their long layoff, Neckar beat the Tigers 68-56. Marqus had a pretty solid game according to the box score, going for 15 points, 9 boards, 4 dimes and 5 blocks in 20 minutes of play (while guarding some guy who was built like a larger version of Brian Voelkel). Linking to the highlights because I can't get over the fact that there are apparently pretzels served at German press conferences (highlights start 1:30 or so in)... Highlights Apparently their next game is saturday against BBC Bayreuth who has Joe Trapani (who appears to be having a decent season of his own) on their roster.
