Shawn Marion Having Trouble with Weather in Toronto

But off the court, his adaptation skills have been put to the test.

The Raptors road trip, a three-game jaunt through the southwest which begins tomorrow in Phoenix, should alleviate some of that.

The off-court problem has been the temperature, or, more precisely, the fact that it has been below 0C since he got here.

"I’ve been catching cabs everywhere," Marion said. "Fortunately, I’ve been staying close to the arena so it has been easy, It’s just too cold. I’m not used to this."
