NBA Draft 2012: Kendall Marshall will shine with the Suns!

Kendall Marshall playing for the Phoenix Suns goes together like bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes or meat and potatoes. I can see Kendall dishing out assists to Channing Frye as he spots up at the three-point line. It was rumored that Dallas was interested in Kendall because they wanted him to be the heir to the point guard position after Jason Kidd retires. Well, I guess that Mark Cuban had other thoughts. The Mavs drafted Zeller, then sent him to the Cavs. I know. I’m on a roll with the rhyming, but there’s a reason. Several Tar Heels are going to be playing in the NBA next season. I expect for the projected starting lineup of the Phoenix Suns to be Steve Nash (if he stays; remember he is a free agent), Shannon Brown, Jared Dudley, Channing Frye, and Marcin Gortat. If Steve Nash bolts to another team (which is possible; he wants a ring on it!), then Kendall Marshall will be the projected starting point guard for the Phoenix Suns. I do not see too much of a learning curve for Marshall. The president of the “Pass-First” movement already has a following. Here on Tobacco Road, we know what Marshall is going to bring. He is a true point guard, who happens to be most humble cat I know, he loves fresh kicks, hanging out with friends and family, and being a big bro. Congrats Kendall! See ya in the NBA Rookie vs. Sophomore game in February, 2013.
