Phoenix Suns' Eric Bledsoe working hard during the off-season


Phoenix Suns’ point guard Eric Blesdoe said that he’s been working hard during the off-season.

“I’m trying to get better, even better than I did last year. Coming off the bench, I did a lot. I’m trying to increase that 10 times more. Just coming in and having a big impact in the game. I just try to go as hard as I would in a real game. So when a real game comes, it makes it 10 times easier. I try to do intense everything. Shooting, I try to give 110 percent. Dribbling the basketball. Thinking the game. I just try to do it 110 percent so when the game comes it’s a lot easier.” Bledsoe told the Arizona Republic.

Considering he’s one of the most energetic players in the league, it’s hard to picture Bledsoe do anything ’10 times harder’ when it’s time to play ball. The 23 year old who was acquired by the Suns in July, should have a significant role since he led all point guards in blocks despite just playing 20.4 minutes per game.

This season, there should be a lot more expected out of the young point guard.
