Best: Andre Miller
Many criticize Kendall Marshall’s ability to score, which is understandable.
However, Marshall’s court vision is what makes him an attractive prospect.
The fact that he averaged close to 10 APG against some of the best college competition indicates that, in the best situation, he will become one of the purest point guards in the NBA, similar to Andre Miller.
Not many realize how good a passer Miller is—he consistently averages seven or eight APG, including a career high of 10.9 APG in his third season in the NBA.
If all goes well, Marshall can put up numbers similar to Miller’s.
In addition, Miller isn’t very well-known for his offensive game, although he has developed his jump shot over the years. During one season, Miller averaged 17.0 PPG.
Marshall wasn’t a great scorer in college, but he was efficient, shooting 47 percent from the field and a respectable 35 percent from three-point land.
If Marshall continues to polish his ability to score, there is no doubt that he can score in the double-digits consistently.
Worst: Earl Watson
Marshall’s lack of scoring ability could hurt his chances of becoming a starter in the NBA.
Instead, he may become a player like Earl Watson—a role player who earns his minutes by dishing to teammates.
