Shawn Marion Shooting Form Tribute

Published on May 7th, 2014 by Astramskas, David | 11,504 views

Shawn Marion’s “tiger style” shooting form might be one of the oddest the league has ever seen but the 17 year vet currently on the Mavs has made 779 3-pointers, 2305 free throws and a decent amount of his 7170 field goals with that “ugly” shot.

If you flashback to his All-Star seasons when The Matrix was one of the top 5 players drafted in every fantasy basketball league, it wasn’t uncommon to see Marion hit 4-5 ugly 3-pointers in a game to go along with his roto loved season averages of 20pts, 10rebs, 2asts, 2stls & 2blks.

Here’s a tribute to the man with the effective but ineffective looking shot (who also got mad at me at a club once in Austin for a reason odder than his shooting form).
