Articles about Marvin Phillips

January 10, 2011

Marvin Phillips - Phillips is a journeyman and veteran of the US minor leagues, who has gone from being an also-ran D-League bench player to its current leader in double doubles. Traded from the Iowa Energy to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants at draft time, Phillips has gone on to average 13.2 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.2 blocks in only 28 minutes per game, shooting 58% from the field and 89% from the line. He does this while standing only 6'7; he is able to put up this production through a combination of athleticism and relentless, innate hustle. Of course, this hustle also leads to 4.2 fouls per game, which is why he only plays those 28 minutes per game. And in spite of his advancing age (27), Phillips's offensive skill is unspectacular, save for the free throw stroke (which, it must be said, is rather anomalous from the rest of his career). But this does not change the context, impact, and potential impact of his style of player. Grab me ten rebounds per 28 minutes while standing only 6'7 tall, and I'll let you foul as much as you like.
