Eric Bledsoe Says He Was Tipped Before Game About Nerlens Noel’s Hard Foul

Eric Bledsoe, Nerlens Noel

Last night Nerlens Noel dropped Eric Bledsoe to the hardwood not more than 30 seconds into the Suns-76ers game in Philadelphia. This came after Bledsoe had said his alum, Kentucky, could beat the 0-12 Sixers in a seven-game series. It was an embarrassing proclamation, even if some believe there’s some truth to his belief. Well, it seems Bledsoe knew the hard foul was coming since a 76ers player tipped him off about it before the game began. Read More »

Apparently Nerlens Noel didn’t take kindly to Eric Bledsoe insisting that the Kentucky Wildcats could beat the winless Philadelphia 76ers in a seven-game series. Noel took the first opportunity available to send Bledsoe a message in his team’s loss to the Phoenix Suns tonight, committing a hard foul 30 seconds after tip-off that prompted Bledsoe to get in the rookie’s face.

Alum Eric Bledsoe Says Kentucky Can “Definitely” Beat The Sixers

Eric Bledsoe

The NBA season isn’t even a month old and we’re already sick of a few ongoing storylines. The biggest one surrounds the laughable notion any college team could beat an NBA franchise. Yes, the Philadelphia 76ers are winless at 0-10, and Kentucky stomped Kansas the other day, but to say Kentucky could actually beat the Sixers is crazy talk. Then again, former Kentucky guard and current Suns guard Eric Bledsoe says they “definitely” could. Read More »

Brook Lopez, Eric Bledsoe, Deron Williams

Bench guards Gerald Green and Isaiah Thomas led the Suns to a 112-104 win over the visiting Nets last night with 28 and 21 points, respectively. Because they were playing so well, Eric Bledsoe played less than half the game. Still, on this high screen by Markieff Morris, his move on Deron Williams and mid-air switching of hands was borderline Jordanesque. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Eric Bledsoe On Call of Duty, His Extension, Jeff Hornacek’s FT’s & More

Eric Bledsoe

Suns guard Eric Bledsoe went through some turmoil this offseason as a restricted free agent. He signed his qualifying offer last fall after the team made it clear they wanted to wait until he had proven himself in a starter’s role after backing up Chris Paul for three years with the Clippers. Then, a shin ailment digressed into a torn meniscus and Bledsoe missed half of the 2013-14 regular season after having surgery to remove the meniscus. In what time he did appear in the Suns’ double-headed backcourt with All-NBA Third Team member, Goran Dragic, Bledsoe showed he’s a more-than capable starter in the Association. Read More »

Taj Gibson Pokes Fun At Jared Cunningham After Eric Bledsoe Drops Him

Taj Gibson

Last night, Eric Bledsoe was going against his old team, the Clippers, after getting traded to Phoenix last fall. He dropped 27 on them; although, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin led the Clippers to a 108-105 win in a fun preseason contest. At one point Bledsoe made LA guard Jared Cunningham look downright foolish with a step-back that sent him toppling all the way under the basket, and Bulls forward Taj Gibson certainly noticed.

Report: Eric Bledsoe And Suns Make Progress On Contract Extension

Eric Bledsoe

After playing 43 games for the Suns last season and averaging career highs in points, assists and minutes per game, Eric Bledsoe thought his restricted free agency would bring a max offer. That hasn’t happened so far and Phoenix’s four-year, $48 million offer (on par with what the Raptors gave Kyle Lowry) was rejected while placing a wedge between what the team thinks he’s was and what Bledsoe’s team believes. Yet, despite the acrimony between the two sides, a report from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnaworski says they’re back at the negotiating table and getting closer to an extension. Read More »
