I wish him well in retirement. He was the one guy Cho overpaid that I couldn't be that upset about, the effort and leadership was always there and he gave everything he had to the team and the community during his tenure. A first-class professional.

I was always a big fan of Marv. One of those superstar role players during our one playoff run before Batum fell apart.

It's to bad he didn't get more meaningful playoff minutes. His game, in his later years, was perfect for it. Still got $100 mil so I guess that's something though!

Good to end well on a playoff team. Now, come back to Charlotte and coach.

I'm hoping he comes back to Charlotte as assistant GM or something.

Marvin, you were the plug that powered our treadmill. So long and happy workout routine.

Happy retirement Marvin! I hope you get involved with the Hornets again, we'd be better for it.

I know the majority of us weren't overly joyous with this signing; going back and rereading the beginning of this thread again confirms that lol, but I love how basically all of Hornets fandom turned into the Marvin Williams Love Dome. We'll miss ya!
