Top 10 Point Guards in the Western Conference
8.) Eric Bledsoe
After playing in just 31 games last season, Bledsoe makes his return to the back court in Phoenix where he looks to hold his ground as the starting point guard.
Nicknamed the “mini-LeBron” by some, Bledsoe is going somewhat under the radar coming into this season due to his injury history over the past couple of seasons. Bledsoe did play 81 games the year before, but only 43 the year before that.
In Bledsoe’s 31 games last season, he averaged over 20 points and six assists a game. Even though the back court in Phoenix has two young guys in the shadows in Booker and Ulis, Bledsoe has his starting spot locked down until proven otherwise.
He has all the physical tools to be one of the better, more athletic point guards in the league, the only thing holding him back is his health.
