Despite the fact that he hasn't played basketball since high school, Miami Dolphins' Brandon Marshall says he'll play in the NBA if there's an NFL lockout in 2011. Apparently, he's completely serious, and he's pretty sure of himself too: "Not pursuing -- I'm going to be on an NBA team. Seriously."

He says he's good enough to play SG professionally, and he's going to hook up with a basketball coach to start preparing for the lockout. The article makes it sound like he plans on doing that, like, RIGHT NOW. I can't imagine the Dolphins would be in love with that idea, but the article says they're not worried about it. They must not think he'll follow through because if I were them, all that extra time playing basketball and NOT focusing on football would have me worried that Marshall would get injured, have a bad season, or both.

Marshall says he'll either play for the Nuggets or the Heat. Heh. I don't have anything against the guy, but I don't think the Heat need another shooting guard, and it's definitely not like they need the extra name recognition to put butts in seats. But maybe he can get a nice gig over in Europe? Or who knows, maybe the kid can actually play.

Marshall is a wide receiver whose name hasn't been mentioned in a few days, so he has to jump around and yell LOOK AT ME. Since Favre must not have had a bowel movement today worthy of being reported, ESPN had room to provide for Marshall.
Besides, NBA is going to be locked out in 2011 anyway.

I chalk it up more to the fact he's in Miami, and the Heat's the hottest ticket in town (pun unintended). It isn't like he said he'd take a bench spot on the Grizzlies.
