This article presents an interview with Shawn Marion, forward player of the basketball team Phoenix Suns. Describing his jumper, he says his shot's like everyone else's. He just sticks his hips out a little more. When asked about his views on the fact that he is usually considered an underrated player, he says he does everything--defense, rebound, score--and he does it undersized, and still a lot of players get more love. The media and fans may not see all he brings, but the other teams know what he can do.
