Eric “Mini LeBron” Bledsoe is looking forward to live in Phoenix. Bledsoe is out of the shadow of Chris Paul in L.A. and is looking forward to getting plenty of buckets as the new star in Phoenix. His former teammates believe he’s extremely talented, and one, Jamal Crawford, told Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld that “Bledsoe will be a star.” Jamal Crawford, who played alongside Bledsoe last season in Los Angeles and raves about his incredible growth, believes that the young point guard is poised for big things. “He’ll be a star, no question,” Crawford said of Bledsoe. “The guidance and tutelage from Chris and Chauncey and Mo Williams, who was here before, only made him better as a point guard. He’ll definitely be a star. I don’t know when because everybody’s [learning] curve is a little bit different, but there’s no question he’ll be a star. He has the athletic ability and he wants to get better. He has gotten better. A team like that in Phoenix, they’re going to see great results. I think he’ll be exciting to watch too. He was a joy to play with and his growth last year was tremendous. You never want somebody to get hurt, but when Chris went down, Bledsoe stepped in and he did a heck of a job.” Bledsoe averaged 8.5 points playing 20.4 minutes per game in 76 regular season appearances as a reserve, but he put up a pretty decent stat line in the 12 games where he was a starter, posting averages of 14.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 2.5 steals.
