The Phoenix Suns veterans told rookie guard Kendall Marshall after the squad's first practice that they had a surprise for them. He asked if it was a good surprise or a bad surprise.
That depends on how you look at it.
The Phoenix Suns presented Marshall with a trio of embarrassing children's backpacks from which to choose, and he selected one with a Justin Bieber design. The accessory is meant to embarrass Marshall, but the former North Carolina standout is not fazed.
"I feel like I can pull of the J-Biebs," Marshall said.
"I'm going to make it a fashion statement," Marshall said. "I'm going to wear it all the time to the point where [the veterans] are going to be mad, like, 'This doesn't faze him.'"
