So, When Will Brandon Marshall Join the Heat?
"My first team will be the Nuggets, and my second team will be the Heat -- I'm serious," Marshall told ESPN in August.
Marshall, the highest-paid receiver in the NFL, lettered in basketball in high school and has remained a basketball fan. He thinks his skills are good enough that he could play shooting guard for an NBA team.
"There's not going to be any football," Marshall predicted. "If there's a lockout, I have to find a job. I figure the Nuggets will be a better choice because of the welcome-home cheer I'll get -- a couple of boos at first. I'm gonna get with a basketball coach and get to work, prepare for the lockout."
"I've seen him jump -- he's not playing basketball," coach Tony Sparano deadpanned when asked about Marshall's NBA dreams.
