It wasn’t all that long ago that Kendall Marshall was one of the best collegiate basketball players in the country. Sadly, that success didn’t translate into the NBA initially as the former first round pick struggled during his rookie NBA season.
Marshall, who was drafted with the No. 13 pick in 2012 by the Phoenix Suns was just nine years old when the Sacramento Kings emerged onto the scene as one of the NBA’s powerhouse teams, but they’ll forever be etched in his memory.
During a Q&A session with fans on Twitter, Marshall, who previously played with the Los Angeles Lakers last season stated that his all-time favorite team were the Chris Webber lead Kings of 2000.

A Virginia native, Kendall Marshall was a cross-country fan of the Kings (or at least that roster) which states just how large of an influence that era of Kings basketball had on the NBA and their fans.
Kendall Marshall was released by the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this offseason to create cap room in hopes of signing Carmelo Anthony, though the Lakers were said to have interest in re-signing him once he cleared waivers. Sadly for them, they weren’t given such an opportunity as the Milwaukee Bucks claimed the young pass-first point guard instead.
