Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall Wants To Play In The NBA: Cause For Concern Or Not Really A Problem?

Brandon Marshall
If you haven't already heard, Brandon Marshall said during an interview with ESPN that if the NFL had a lockout and the 2011-2012 season was canceled, he would play in the NBA.

Marshall is absolutely serious, and while I don't know if he would actually make a team this is still a cause for concern.

The fact that he would even consider leaving the Miami Dolphins is a huge concern to me. He should be thinking about football this year, but instead he is worried about what he will do if there isn't any football.

Instead of saying what he did when asked about next season, he should have said something along the lines of "I'm not concerned with next year, just this one".

Something like that, but instead he became a distraction to others and himself by talking about being in the NBA. He turned what could have been a simple question into a big story covered by everyone.

Maybe that kind of attention is something he loves, and normally I don't mind that as long as it doesn't hurt the team. But, something like this can hurt the team, and it can be a distraction.

I normally am a huge fan of Marshall, and this is really the first time I have ever said anything bad about him on my blog. I just wish that he would focus on just football with the season so close.

Miami is paying him good money to play football, and not to think about playing basketball. I just hope this doesn't affect his play.

Hopefully, he will never have the opportunity to play in the NBA, and whoever is involved in the possible lockout agrees to whatever terms necessary for a season next year.

Hopefully, Marshall isn't really distracted too much and is able to focus on the season at hand, because we need him to do well. Keep your fingers crossed Miami Dolphins fans.
