Shawn, an excellent player at times, has a problem with aggressive play. He has a talent for blocking shots and an occasional steal. The one thing that makes the difference, is the sacrifice a player makes to use their body to defend and take it in the chin if need be. Roger Bell is the blue-collar worker on the court. To keep a player like Kobe in check for most of the game says it all. He is hustle and flow. Watching Shawn allowing a player to blow by him under the basket, because he doesn't want to make contact is frustrating.

B-ball, I wish you were wrong. IMO, we'll never beat San Antonio with Marion starting and playing more than 20 minutes.
It'll be too rough for him. Sean will stand around at the 3-point line (where he doesn't belong, and we'll be praying he doesn't shoot), occasionally pretending like he's going to drive on Duncan.
I'd love to see him get pissed off some day and lose some of his fear.
I'm thinking the Suns need an injury -- either to Duncan or Marion -- for them to win.
