Eric Bledsoe

What do you project his season stats will be?

Also he's reportedly up to 205 pounds now, his jumpshot has already suffered due to him lifting weights, was only 190 at UK and could shoot now he cant throw a rock in the ocean, what do you think of the extra 10 pounds? Will it help or hurt him?

Long term it may help him

Long term it may help him because it can make his bread and butter driving to the hoop and eventually he will get his shot form back once he is used to his new size and strength.

The weight will probably help

The weight will probably help this year as he'll have to guard the 2 if him and Dragic play together. The extra strength will help if his opponent thinks they could bully him in the post.

Some guy called Michael

Some guy called Michael Jordan added maybe 35lbs to his frame from when he entered the league. He also improved his jump shot. If Bledsoe is lifting hard it will have minimal effect on his jump shot. If he is lifting and working on his J his shot will get better.

His shot is gone, he didnt

His shot is gone, he didnt have a jumpshot at 195, how will he have one at 205? Strength isn't going to help him much far as attacking the rim as he was already pretty strong, the only thing I see the 10 pounds helping at is on defense as he will have to guard alot of 2 guards this year.

He should have played football.

I feel like you are 5'9, 120

I feel like you are 5'9, 120 lbs.... Always getting ripped by the bigger stronger guards at the YMCA

nope. Muscle doesn't

nope.

Muscle doesn't automatically make your jumper worse.

this was addressed in another thread but ok

He shot career highs across the board last year. How did his jumper suffer exactly?

Have you ever watched Bledsoe play?

He's way more skilled than Robert Pack.

i'll give you bledsoe has

i'll give you bledsoe has more potential. but that's just potential still. they both can pass, they both can take it to the hole, both high flyers, both streaky shooters (bledsoe may prove to be better, but that's still yet to be shown and there's the hand checking rule we have to consider wearing out players), both used as spark plugs off the bench but not very much as a starter yet, but when given the chance can get by doing it. bledsoe hasn't started enough games yet to prove he can win as a starter. pack was not a starter very long, put up average stats when he was.

Bledsoe will probably start

Bledsoe will probably start next to Dragic and I think he'll put up decent numbers doing that.

I think Bledsoe will play about 32 mpg and put up 13.1 ppg 4.9 rpg 3.9 apg and 1.7 spg

He's a fantastic athlete, but I don't think he has a definitive role in the NBA yet. He's a true combo, who can be disruptive defensively and in transition, but he's a little erratic and still prone to a bone head mistake or two. This year in Pheonix will be good for him, I think he'll start to figure things out a little more in a low pressure situation.

Also, for the record, a lot of NBA players bulk up in the off season because they end up losing 5-7 lbs during the course of the year doing so much cardio during games.

Bledsoe took a small small sample of 3's, your out of your mind if you think he can shoot.Bledsoe has to prove himself before you can say he's better than pack, but he's def more talented than Pack.

I think he'll average more

I think he'll average more rebounds than assists.
