"19. Shawn Marion, Dallas Mavericks (last year: 23rd, but as a power forward) Marion's contributions fell off significantly for the second straight season, so maybe this ranking is a little optimistic. He turned 32 last May, his rebounding numbers are starting to look rather ordinary and the once-passable 3-point shooter failed to hit one in every five long-range bombs he tossed up last season. Marion might be able to sustain or possibly improve a bit in 2010-11, but the bigger money is on him getting much, much worse." "12. Caron Butler, Dallas Mavericks (last year: sixth) Butler's game is often so overrated, that I don't want to overcompensate and drop him too far in this list, but it was a little tempting. Caron averaged 15.6 points last season, but he has to take a few shots (13.6 a game) on his way to that total, his defense is rather middling at this point and he's not much for contributing in other areas. He's OK, mind you, and it's good to see him starting on a Mavericks team that could use his services, but he's not the final piece of a championship puzzle, as some in the media touted him last season. Also, his game is more forward-y than guard-like, so he goes here." Can't really disagree with their stuff on Marion, but I have to disagree on where they placed Caron. I think he easily could have moved up a couple of spots with guys like Kirilenko and Gallanari ahead of him.
