Since first joining the National Team in 2005, Kendall has really developed as a player and that has been thanks to three seasons in one of the top European leagues, playing for Panionios and Marousi in Greece.
He has also played in the Euroleague for two successive seasons and regularly facing such class players, has an understanding of the kind of level required of him for his country in this tournament.
He has been something of a role player for Marousi in their challenge for titles behind the giants of Panathinaikos and Olympiacos but nevertheless, has still done a really good job.
Kendall has the full package and with a little more aggression, he could be an absolute handful.
He possesses a great IQ on the court, is good in transition, can handle the ball well and very rarely turns it over under pressure.
He was brilliant on the glass last year in San Juan with over 50 rebounds in the tournament.
More of the same in Turkey would is what will be required of him.
