Marquis Daniels Interview
By InsideHoops.com | Nov. 7, 2006

Last July the Dallas Mavericks traded shooting guard Marquis Daniels to the Indiana Pacers for Austin Croshere. Daniels had his moments as a Maverick and put up nice numbers in reserve minutes, but injuries kept hitting him, and it was simply time to move on. InsideHoops.com editor Jeff Lenchiner met with Daniels a few days ago for an exclusive interview.

InsideHoops.com: Your time in Dallas. Talk about what you got out of being there, the best aspect of the experience.

Marquis Daniels: That we got to go to the finals. Playing in the finals, was a really good achievement for me, a good start. So now I'm moving on to something that will hopefully be bigger and better.

InsideHoops.com: Talk about the growth of your game, from the time you first stepped into the league through now. You're still evolving.

Marquis Daniels: Just maturity level. Understanding the game a lot more, and being able to play with anybody, is going to help out a lot.

InsideHoops.com: The trade that sent you to Indiana, were you expecting it? Expecting to be traded in general?

Marquis Daniels: Uh huh. I'd been [anticipating] it, yeah.

InsideHoops.com: Were you pushing for a trade to happen?

Marquis Daniels: Yeah.

InsideHoops.com: In search of more minutes, a bigger role, elsewhere?

Marquis Daniels: Yeah.

InsideHoops.com: How long were you pushing for a trade to happen? Was it going on for a while?

Marquis Daniels: Naw, I just new it was going to happen.

InsideHoops.com: Did you know or expect to be headed to Indiana?

Marquis Daniels: I had an idea but I didn't know the full effect.

InsideHoops.com: So now you're here. New home, new existence. Next step in your career.

Marquis Daniels: It's a great team... just trying to get back to the way things were around here.

InsideHoops.com: What's up with the new ball? How's it feel to you?

Marquis Daniels: [Sarcastically] New ball? We got a new ball?

InsideHoops.com: That's the hot rumor. That's the word on the street.

Marquis Daniels: I mean, you gotta play with it. I don't like it, but you gotta play with it.

InsideHoops.com: And do you confirm that the grip is fine when dry but that it's slippery when wet?

Marquis Daniels: I'm not a big fan of it.

InsideHoops.com: Your game. Your skills. What do you specifically want to improve?

Marquis Daniels: I'm just working to get better all around. Whether it's shooting, passing, dribbling, playing defense, whatever, I'm just looking to get better.

:lol: I don't think Quis was very interested in that interview. I just picture it taking like 15 seconds and Quis is like looking away the whole time.

Been pretty impressed by this guy, and he hasn't even done much yet. You can see he's got the skills. Looks like he CAN play a few minutes of pg.

A player we agree on!

Seriously, I thought he did well. I thought the offense ran fine with him at the point, enough so that if Tinsley goes down I'd be interested in seeing a Jack/Daniels backcourt.








GET IT? JACK DANIELS? I crack myself up.

Before that he had one of the longest standing avatars ever...

I think this one is around for a while.

Right Anthem?

Yup. No change on the horizon.

It's funny... I watched Monk religiously for the first three seasons. But then I quit my job as a technical editor, and my OCD went away overnight. I haven't watched Monk since then.

Weird, huh?

Actually guys, I meant my avitar, as in I'm going to go look for a good Jack Daniels photo...although can we officially just nickname Tinsley "Coke" while we are at it. Jack and Coke has a nice ring to it too.


BTW, is a technical editor an editor for technical writing? As a BSEE about to wrap up my BA English I've had some interest in that field since it bridges both degrees. Just wondering.

Yup. PM me, I can tell you about it. It can be pretty good work, depending on who you work for.
