How much does Marion have left?
By Joe Kaiser
At age 34, Shawn Marion may not be the same player that he was five or seven years ago, but with one more year left on his deal with Dallas the veteran forward still has plenty left in the tank. The stats bear that out.
Marion is averaging 16 points and 8 rebounds per game this month, and shooting just south of 57 percent from the field. For the season, he's over 51 percent, with averages of 11.8 points and 7.8 rebounds.
Not convinced? Here's more from our own Marc Stein on what Marion has done over the past few months.

"Shawn Marion will be trying Wednesday night to reach the 20-point plateau for the third consecutive game, something he hasn’t managed since February 2007. Marion has also posted two 25-and-10 games in his last 19 appearances for the Mavs, after the 34-year-old crafted just two such games in his first 260 regular-season games in Dallas."
