Brandon Marshall gives up dream of playing in NBA

During the 2010 season, Brandon Marshall repeatedly stated that he'd like to play in the NBA if the NFL locked players out and there was no 2011 season.

Ignoring the problem of the NBA dealing with labor issues, we presented a case -- along with our Eye on Basketball brethren -- why Marshall probably wouldn't be able to cut it in the L. It appears he agrees now, and has given up that [pipe] dream.

According to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, Marshall said the idea to play in the NBA if there's a lockout "is dead."

Apparently, he "tried to play recently [and] realized he didn't have it."

Curiously, this sounds just like the last time I tried to play basketball. (And I'm not a world-class athlete -- I'm just a "moderately lean" blogger.)

Which isn't to say that Marshall and I share any physical attributes whatsoever. It's just an indication of how difficult it is to play in a particular professional sports league, even if you already compete at an extremely high level.

Besides, Marshall's already got a gig-in-waiting as an NFL analyst.
