Players that took time to congratulate Marion in this video tribute include Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Bradley Beal, Eric Gordan, Jason Kidd, Leandro Barbosa, Penny Hardaway, Mike D’Antoni, and Amar’e Stoudemire.

Marion played in 680 career games for the Suns and averaged 18.4 points and 10 rebounds. He was a four-time NBA All–Star (2003, 2005–2007) with the Suns and made the All–NBA Third Team two times (2005, 2006).

Here is what Marion had to say when reflecting on what this moment means to him:

“It is such a crazy feeling because I have contemplated so many different things. Actually, I get asked this question a lot of why it hadn’t happened sooner or all of this other stuff. This is the right timing for this. That is how I am looking at it right now. Forget about everybody saying that it should have been done a long time ago. It is done. It wouldn’t have been right then. It is right now and that is what it is about.”
