The Phoenix Suns may not be the best basketball team in the NBA, but they still have plenty of talent. However, it is Eric Bledsoe who can really shine for this team and it is time to see his talent being put to work.
Bledsoe has so much talent and he has shown glimpses of that talent. However, he needs to receive more playing time.
Last season, he averaged 8.5 points, 3.1 assists and three rebounds per game in just 20.4 minutes per game. As you can see, some more playing time would be great, especially since he managed to shoot 44.5 percent from the field and 39.7 percent from behind the arc.
His three-point shooting percentage has gone way up ever since joining the league a couple of seasons ago. In his rookie season, Bledsoe shot 27.6 percent from long range.
He really has the talent to be something special, but first he needs to get more playing time. Being on a contending team would help out as well, but that will likely not be the case in the upcoming season.
The Suns are coming off of a season where they finished in last place in the Pacific with a 25-57 record. Who knows if things will get better next season, but Phoenix does have a lot of talent on its team.
If all else fails maybe we will finally see Bledsoe emerge in the NBA, but that has yet to be seen. With as much talent as he has, though, Bledsoe is bound to breakout sooner than later.
