Too much humble
I know we're all supposed to praise Marvin Williams for wanting to learn, admitting he's young and relatively green, wanting to be a real student of the game. But this photo from the gallery in this month's Dime is a little out of control.
This is a step beyond Duncan's sheepishness, Wade's manners, Nash's introspection, the deference before the Lord common to football and occasionally seen in the Association (more in college?), or the Aaron McKie school of what Big Baby once christened "the all-janitor team." Dude is blankly waiting for the bus, by a parking garage, dressed like he just finished mowing someone's lawn. In principle, this should really annoy me, but instad I think it's kind of bad-assed. Like no one, no one, can fuck with how humble he is.
p.s. Anyone else who's looked at the gallery—is Warrick standing in front of a Bentley, or one of those Chryslers that looks like one? And if it is a Bentley, who the fuck puts a tree-shaped air freshener in a Bentley? Is that hood or straight dress-up box?
