Marion claims Mav's have more titles in them yet

4:20 pm on 14 June 2011

The Dallas Mavericks basketballer Shawn Marion believes the team have another NBA title in their ageing bones after winning the franchise's first ever championship, beating the Miami Heat 105-95 in game six to wrap up the best of seven series four games to two.

Small forward Marion did an excellent job of containing the Heat's All-Star LeBron James, with the former NBA MVP scoring on average almost 10 points less per game during the finals than the regular season.

Marion is one of a host of Mavericks players over 30, including 32-year-old finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki and 38-year-old point guard Jason Kidd but the man the call 'the matrix' says Dallas have plenty left in the tank.
