Marshall is the writer of scores of national and regional television and radio commercials and jingles, as well as a contributor to various national publications, published short-story author, produced playwright and screenwriter.
Marshall's love of sports came from his desire to connect with his father. He hails from suburban Detroit, where he is a lifelong Tigers, Pistons and Lions fan (although he was Lions-free during almost the entire Millen era) and Red Wings appreciator.
Marshall loves sports most for its emotional and human side, and has never met an underdog he didn't root for (unless they were playing a Detroit team).
The ESPN in Brazil is increasingly inflating the population, seems to be the only station that is next to the people and are tired of the way that Brazil is, is a lot of corruption and a lot of media manipulation outside ESPN, any questions ask me Marshall, the information given may not be correct.
The Brazil woke, as the international press has spoken of demonstrations in Brazil, Marshall?

My pleasure Marshall,
I've really enjoyed your work as of late, keep up the good work
best article ever
Hey Marshall. Loved the 2016-2017 article. A few questions and comments on each team though:
1. Cavs: Who do you have going to the Cavs in this year's draft? They have Irving, Waiters, James, and Jackson. Do you expect this year's pick to be a bust? To be traded away?
2. Bulls: What do you think will happen to Deng? And what do you think the Bulls will do with the Bobcats pick they have in the draft prior to the 2016 season? How did the Bulls get Miami's pick?
3. Knicks: How does Randolph come to NYC, trade or free agency?
4. Pacers: Do you expect West, then 37 years old, to still be an effective player? Love Peppers playing basketball! Also, I think a team of Muhammad, George, and CP3 would be much better 43-39.
5. Magic: Wiggins, Vucevic, Jones, and a 33 year old Igoudala would win 50 games.
6. Nuggets: Love everything about it, Nash as coach, the return of Oden both awesome.
7. Thunder: No matter how ineffective the bench, it's hard to see a team with Ibaka, Howard, Westbrook, and Smith all under 31 being that bad. Guys don't wash up that easily.
8. Rockets: Howard is the nicest guy, regardless of his FA issues, he'd never have problems like that.
9. Lakers: Durant, M Gasol, Zeller, Mayo,and Mudiay with Kobe as coach is one of the best teams in the NBA. Durant will still be one of the best players in the NBA then, as he'll be just 28.
10. Blazers: Haywood will be 38, doubt he'll still be in the league. Neither Bennett or Oladipo will last to the Blazers pick, so how do they get them? Also, it's hard to believe Lillard and Aldridge stay in Portland if it takes more than 2 years to contend.
11. Spurs: I love the Spurs ageless ways, but this just cannot happen. Also, Duncan says he wants to go out a champion like the admiral did, so I say hes gone after they beat theHeat this year. And they dont have enough money for those three, and Leonard, Green, and Splitter AND Williams. Just no.
12. Pelicans: Wade will never accept veterans minimum, not even at 35. Parker will be more than 6th man, no way in hell he doesnt start. I love Fisher as coach though.
13. Sonics: Which team goes to Seattle? How do the Sonics return?
Great Article on 2016-2017.
I really loved it.
Though your bias towards Rockets maybe bolded in the article...
I thought it was a great analysis if these trades do occur.
Keep it up!
Keep on posting. Don't let those comments get you down. Sometimes they're just not worth your time, but taking your time to actually reply to as many comments as you can makes you one of fave writers. Keep em coming!
Regarding your article, "Best Ideas the NBA's Never Had," if you are looking for innovation in the game of basketball, you need look no further than the Harlem Globetrotters.
The Globetrotters introduced the 4-point shot to professional basketball on Dec. 5, 2010, and have been using it ever since. The shot is 35 feet from the basket, nearly 12 feet beyond the NBA's three-point arc.
At that time, the Globetrotters also put into play a penalty box, similar to hockey, and have often played one, two and even three players down when the penalty box has been used by the game officials.
These innovations were also used during the Globetrotters' recent groundbreaking "Your Write the Rules" World Tour, where the team let the fans vote online and at live games for rules they wanted to see implemented. Other rules under which the Globetrotters played during portions of games included playing with two basketballs at once and getting double the points for each basket made.
Additionally, the Globetrotters played a game in the dark in March 2010, donning glow in the dark uniforms and using a glow in the dark basketball. The team has also played in several unique venues in their iconic 87-year history, including on outdoor ice rinks, on rooftops, and on the decks of active military aircraft carriers.
The Harlem Globetrotters have been pushing basketball's boundaries for decades, and continue to do so today.

I have a question for you Marshall.
Do you konw the China Sina micro-blog? It's a social networking platform similar to the American Twitter. Some NBA players also opened the Sina micro-blog like JeremyLin,StephenCurry and KobeByant.ect. Asia-Americans are not the only ones who use the Sina micro-blog. Is that a real thing??
