Kendall Marshall's D-league Derby

20121003_mjr_su5_013

Suns rookie Kendall Marshall is with the Bakersfield Jam getting some D-league run. Here's the updates.

The Great Marshall Debate of 2012 will be resolved on Monday night. Kendall will take the floor for the Jam and either prove his potential (future) greatness as an NBA point guard or he will show his detractors that the Suns screwed up by drafting him 13th overall.

Or not.

The meaning of this game is minimal but it is a good chance to see him in live action and it is important for his development to play well in the D-league. One game won't answer the questions about Marshall but at least it's actual information and not just more bias'd speculation from his lovers and haters.

Game info:

Game date/time: Monday, December 3, 8 p.m. AZT / 10 p.m. ET

Location: Jam Events Center, Bakersfield, California

Marshall joins two rookies from the Atlanta Hawks - SG John Jenkins and PF Mike Scott - who were both also sent down for some work.
