Only 388 shopping days left before Michael Jordan announces another comeback in another uniform with another number that your kid absolutely has to have under his Christmas tree.

The Good

Stephon Marbury, Phoenix Suns
Week's work:
3-1 record, 24.5 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 8 apg, 2.7 spg, 4 triples, 42% shooting
Before the week started, the Suns were 5-5 and looking at games against the Bucks, Nets and Spurs. Now, they're 8-6 with the fifth seed in the playoffs as Starbury goes from Allen Iverson under roos to Gary Payton pull ups.
