Shawn Marion Demands Respect for Mavs

Compared to teams in the past, the Dallas Mavericks have definitely been overlooked during the start of this season. This is mostly due to the fact of the lockout and major trades.

The Dallas Mavericks are clearly 2010-2011 NBA World Champions, but it still doesn’t seem clear enough to the media and the public according to Shawn Marion.

“We’ve gotten to the point where everybody started overlooking us and talking about everybody else and I kind of got [mad] about it,” Marion told Jeff Caplan of ESPNDallas.com. “Y’all tying to take something away from us that we’ve worked hard for and we took.”

“We earned everything we did last year,” Marion said. “Everybody on this team earned the right to be addressed as world champions so everybody needs to address them like that.”

“You don’t be listening to the people? Look what the media is saying,” Marion said. “Look outside (the local media) what they be saying. They can kiss our a–. I got my hardware. We earned it. We took it.”

Marion might be surprised of this result, but Terry and Nowitzki certainly aren’t.

Terry suggested after the championship win that all of the attention would naturally focus back on LeBron and the Heat, Kobe and the Lakers, and the young up-and-coming teams like the Thunder.

Dirk wasn’t too surprised either.

“We weren’t the favorites to win it last year, so nobody really knows what’s going to happen in the next couple of months,” Nowitzki said at the start of training camp. “So, all this favorite stuff is a bunch of speculation anyway. Nobody knows what’s going to happen in June. All we have to do is get prepared and get all the new pieces in the right places and play our butt off.”
