He has also been known for the awkward shot. However, he hit shots at 33.1 percent from three and 48.4 percent from the field.
Marion was on Twitter Spaces ‘ Who Would’ve been the GOAT If they had more help’ Hosted by Joy De’Angela and Gowie. Marion went on a rant addressing his critics who have been who have made fun of his shot mechanics.
“That’s the one thing that they did to me. Talk about my motherf****ing shot, but nobody in the league shoots the same. I’m shooting 35-40 percent from the three-point line at one point in my career,” said Marion.
“I was a very consistent jump shooter, so you are going to sit there and talk about my motherf**** shot, but don’t want to talk about ever things I did on the floor. Get the f*** of here s*** my d***. Like seriously, I’m averaging 2o plus points and ten a game a 6’7 in a league that is dominated by bigs. Dominated by power forwards and centers and I’m getting two blocks, and I’m getting two-plus steals per game. And you want to sit there and talk about my motherf***ing shot nobody in the league shoot the same. Really? Look, I’m top five you go back, who got the number one winning percentage in Phoenix Suns history? N*** me! I’m top five in almost every category in Phoenix Suns’ history.”
