All the talk about the Phoenix Suns before the draft was whether they could resign free agent Steve Nash. Well, if they can't, they're trying to build the next one by selecting Kendall Marshall. The assist-master point guard will be able to do a lot for the Suns if giving the opportunity, and the team which just missed the playoffs this season should be poised to make them this coming year.

Few teams in the NBA run faster than Phoenix does, so Marshall already has a leg up on the style of play. And if he can learn at the feet of Steve Nash for a season or two? Man, am I excited about what could be coming down the pike for him.
