Shawn Marion likely leaving Mavericks, reflects on 'memorable, fun, amazing' run

The Dallas Mavericks have been exploring and assembling free agents to build up their roster for the 2014-15 season. It unfortunately looks like the Mavericks won’t be able to bring back small forward Shawn Marion.

“It was memorable, baby,” Marion said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It’s hard to say it wasn’t fun. We had a great run and made the playoffs four of five years and won a championship. We set goals every year, and most years we reached them. And to win a championship, it was unbelievable. I wish we could have made a couple more runs at it, but it is what it is.”

As far as where he’ll playing next season, he is still undecided.

“If I see something really comfortable, then I’ll do it,” Marion said. “Right now, I’m just staying with my [newborn] son and relaxing. It’s only July, man. We got two more months. We’ll just wait and see how it works out.”

No matter where he goes, Marion says he’ll be staying in Dallas when he retires.

“It was an amazing run in Dallas,” he said. “Who knows what the future holds? But I definitely will be retiring in Dallas. I love living there. I’m building my dream home there, and that’s where I’ll spend most of my time.”
