Funny how he mentioned he wants to join Lebron and Wade, not Lebron, Wade and Bosh
DAVIE, Fla. (AP)—Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall(notes) says he has a fallback plan if NFL teams lock
out players next year: He’ll try out for the NBA.
Marshall said he would audition for the Miami Heat or Denver Nuggets as a shooting guard.
“Right now I’m rusty,” he said after Dolphins’ practice Thursday. “Right now I’m no good. If I try out right now they’ll be saying, ‘What is this guy thinking?’ But after some training I’ll be fine. I’ll be right back where I used to be.”
The 6-foot-4 Marshall lettered in basketball three times at Lake Howell High School in Winter Park, Fla.
“I’m an outside shooter,” he said. “But it’s funny—I use the 3-ball to set up my penetration game. It’s a little backward.”
Marshall was a Nuggets fan while playing for the Broncos. He said he would try to get a workout with them, and would also be interested in joining LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat.
