Mini Lebron AKA Eric Bledsoe
Noticed his listed weight at UK was 190-195, and he's still listed at that weight today for those who've seen him in person is he still that same weight? He can't be he looks to be more around 205 now, and his jumpshot has kinda suffered due to him bulking up even more.
All of his percentages were career highs last year. He's never been a shooter, but he has actually IMPROVED. Do you watch basketball?
I thought iggy was the mini LeBron of the league the Russell was after him...
Eric Bledsoe is nothing like Lebron. Skill-wise, Lebron is in another galaxy. Bledsoe is an explosive athlete yes, but he is nowhere near the overall player that Lebeon is and never will be.
This is what Goran Dragic recently said.
I think he's just talking about Eric Bledsoe's physique/athleticism... Not like his actual skill set.
Physique wise, Bledsoe is a physical marvel.
It would be stupid, but Lebron calls him mini Lebron..
Harold Minor was Baby Jordan...
how'd that work out for Harold Miner?
Who is Harold Miner?
He was a very average shooting guard in the mid-90's but could dunk very well, so people made athletic comparisons with Jordan.
I do like Bledsoe, I just think the nickname shouldn't add any additional expectations on him.
LOL, with Lebron now established as an all-time great it's inevitable that Lebron comparisons will start popping up.
Marcus Smart is a shorter Lebron
Dante Exum is a skinny Lebron
Mickey Mitchell is the White Lebron etc, etc
I dont like comparisons like this because lebron is incredibly unique if you know basketball and semi normal if you dont know basketball. Just bcause you are incredibly athletic and some kind of an all around game doesnt make you a mini lebron. If you could legitimately be a top 10 player at 4 positions then you can be compared to lebron otherwise you arent. There are guys who play other positions who do a lot of things well like russell westbrook who can post up, make plays, play defense, score and have a decent jumpshot.
Not trying to compare, my main question was how much does he actually weigh, at UK he was listed at 190, at the Nba combine he weighed in at 192, nba list him at 195, but he looks like he is a little heavier than thst. For those who've seen him in person chime in.
