If it weren't for Chris Paul, Eric Bledsoe might be the guy doing those State Farm commercials.
He averages around 19 minutes a night, but he makes them count and you know when he's out there.
Most 6'1'' guards are undersized, but not Bledsoe. He's an insane athlete. With the build of a power forward and the hops of a wing, Bledsoe is like a guard playing in an Iron Man suit for basketball.
Combine that with speed, ball-handling skills and a jumper, and you've got yourself a serious offensive weapon.
As a young player waiting his turn, Bledsoe has the opportunity to have Chris Paul in one ear and Chauncey Billups in the other. Not to mention the fact that he played college basketball for John Calipari, a guy with a pretty good track record producing NBA stars.
Bledsoe is on the verge of exploding as soon as he lands a role that offers regular minutes.
