• Trivia:
Lassiter was drafted Overall Number One Pick in the 2009 PBL Draft but did not suit-up as the PBL ceased operations.
• His Memorable Quote:
• “It’s just being there at the right time. I always say, it’s about being ready every possession, whatever happens. If you missed your last four shots, you just be ready for your next shot. It might come,” stated Lassiter in an interview with Interaksyon.com
• What others said:
• “a tremendous defender (and) a really outstanding shooter,” according to his former coach Bob Burton of Fullerton Titans in the NCAA US.
• “As far as Marcio, he’s a tool. Right now, he’s one of the best tools in the tool box for San Miguel. He gets himself down those corners. He’s at the end of the rotation after the double team and his confidence as well is just sky high shooting the ball. There’s no better shooter in the country right now than Marcio,” stated coach Tab Baldwin about Marcio’s role in San Miguel

Marcio Lassiter was so feared by some rival Asian teams that they tried underhanded tactics to have Lassiter disqualified from playing for Smart Gilas. Lebanon in particular protested Marcio and also Chris Lutz to be disqualified as per FIBA HAGOP rule. Marcio and Lutz were later cleared to play as they are natural born Filipinos.
