Shawn Marion is a truly special player that doesn't come along very often. He will be a key part of this future playoff contending team a few years down the road.

What about Jacobsen?? Wouldn't he be in front of Joe Johnson, I mean he is a great shooter.

Yeah he is a great shooter and that's about it. Joe can create his own shot and also create for others. He is taller more athletic and has more potential.

Marion is truly a great player. He does it all except shoot. Shooting is the only thing he is not good at. He is like Magic. He does it all except shoot.

He is 19. Why couldn't he grow? you don't get truly done growing until you are about 21. Plus you can always fill out and lift weights and gain weight. He already has the height of a center. I think the average center size is 6-10 245 pounds. Down the road he could play center....

Like Magic?

Magic couldn't shoot? His lifetime FG % was 52.1%!!!!!!! Magic Johnson could shoot.

I agree, as I saw Joe could not only create his own shot, but has a real knack for getting the ball to the right person at the right time. He can rebound and get steals too, as we all saw. His potential is quite good, I would think.

Yeah the Celts really have been making some retarded moves lately. Giving up Joe Johnson for essentially Tony Delk. Giving up a massive expiring contract for Vin Baker. The Gm needs to be fired. They still have Pitino disease.

Marion can shoot the ball. He scored 20 points a game, which would be impossible for a SF to do unless he was able to shoot. He doesn't get enough credit for his jump shot. And I think Stoudemire could play Center in a couple of years. He has the Height, and he is close to having the strength, so dont rule it out. And the reason the celts traded joe johnson was because he wasnt getting enough pt playing behind paul pierce. It wasnt that stupid of a trade.
