DALLAS -- Shawn Marion is known for running the floor flawlessly and for being a stout defender who can guard four positions.
But the Dallas Mavericks' forward wants everyone to know that no player will completely slam the defensive door on another player -- no matter how impressive he plays.
"Defensively, you’re never going to play a perfect game on defense, or on the offensive end,'' Marion said after Monday's practice. "But on defense if we can stay consistent more and just leave the effort out there it'll show and it helps fuels the offense as well.
"So when we’re able to create turnovers and limit offensive rebounds, we've got to push the ball and it opens up a lot of things for us.''
