Who’s the backup point guard?

November 15th, 2008 · No Comments

We all know the Suns picked a point guard in the second round to be their point guard of the future and backup point guard of the present, but three spots earlier the Kings selected a point guard who wound up in Phoenix and thus far has only been known only as the guy who […]
