The Prodigal Sun Begins to Wander

"Who's the bigger fool: the fool or the fool who follows him?"

-- Obiwan Kenobi, Star Wars IV: A New Hope

In case you're not sure, Dan Fegan is the former and Shawn Marion is the latter.

In a shocking development, Shawn Marion has informed the Heat that he's going to play this year and cash his $17.8M paycheck.  In an even less shocking response, rumors are already brewing that Shawn Marion's expiring contract will be traded next season.

Perhaps most disturbing is that Marion was looking for a three-year extension at $13M a year but Riley only wanted to give him $10M per year.  Is this the same guy that thought he was getting 3 years at $20M per from the Suns?  Or, was that just Marion trying to get the Suns to push him away?  I suppose it could also be a big splash of cold water.

I said it here first.  On February 12.  Just saying ...  Then, he started appearing on and hanging out with RackStar.

Every time I think about this whole turn of events, I get sicker and sicker.

I really need to stop thinking about this.
