There has been a lot of hype surrounding the Phoenix Suns legion of guards, and with good reason. Gerald Green finally realizing his potential, Goran Dragic stepping up and becoming a star player in this league, Eric Bledsoe showing he has what it takes to become an elite guard, these three were the center of attention for Phoenix this season. What everyone has seemed to forget though is that arguably the most talented guard on the Suns roster is not either of those three, it is 19 year old rookie Archie Goodwin.
Goodwin has been quiet most of the season, as his age and inexperience left him the odd man out when it came to finding playing time between him, Bledsoe, Dragic, and Green, but he showcased all of his natural ability and gave us a glimpse of what’s to come during a 29 point spectacle against the Sacramento Kings. His talent was none more apparent than on this drive to the lane, soaring past Ben McLemore Ray McCallum, and Quincy Ace for the dunk and the foul. Seven footer Aaron Gray had a chance to get in on the play, but he looked none too interested in getting posterized by a teenager.
