Known as the Matrix, Shawn Marion was born May 7, 1978 in Waukegan, Illinois. He is widely regarded as one of the most versatile players in the league due to his ability to play many positions. Marion was selected by the Suns in the first round and ninth overall in the 1999 NBA Draft.
Nicknamed The Matrix (coined by TNT analyst Kenny Smith) during the pre-season of his rookie season, Marion was selected to the western conference allstar team for the first time in 2002-03 season joining his PHX teammate Stephon Marbury, the first suns teammates to make the All-Star team since Charles Barkley and Kevin Johnson had done it. He was selected in 2004 to the US Olympic men's basketball team in 2004. In 2005, he was named a reserve on the Western Conference All-Star Team and selected to the 2004-05 All-NBA Third Team. That year he became the first player since David Robinson in 1992 to average in the top five in rebounding and steals since the league started to track steals in 1973. Marion did it again in 2005-06. During the 2005 All-Star Weekend, Marion teamed up with WNBA Rookie of the Year Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury, and Suns legend Dan Majerle in the RadioShack Shooting Stars to run away with the title. Marion was also selected as a Western Conference reserve on the 2006 All-Star team, and the 2007 All-Star team.
During the 2006-07 season, Marion was one of two players (the other Kevin Garnett) to rank in the top 40 in points per game, rebounds per game, field goal percentage, blocks per game, steals per game, and minutes per game. He was named to his fourth NBA All-Star Team as a reserve (2003, -05, -06, -07) and collected 18 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals in 22 minutes in his hometown of Las Vegas at the 2007 NBA All-Star Game.
