The biggest casualty of his reluctance to leave the indoor warmth has been his biggest off-court passion, his DVD movie collection.
Marion has been buying new releases every Tuesday like clockwork since his NBA career began nine years ago.
"I've got a sick collection," Marion says but has no idea exactly how many movies he has.
"Every Tuesday I go get whatever new releases have come out," he explained, "but I haven't done any of that (in Toronto). I have to get out to Best Buy. I'm like two weeks behind in my DVDs. I got to get caught back up."
