Eric Bledsoe forgot how to basketball
It’s pretty easy around these parts to take jabs at Eric Bledsoe.
He didn’t want to be here in Phoenix, after all, but since he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks, Bledsoe has been a key cog on a title contending squad.
Bledsoe even earned NBA All-Defensive First Team honors last year. He’s been good!
Now that that is out of the way, he did a silly thing last night during the fourth quarter of a Bucks win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Handed the ball by a referee during a break in action, Bledsoe decided he would dribble up the court instead of, you know, inbounding the ball to one of his teammates.
Maybe Bledsoe took a hit to his head earlier on in the game.
Or did some aliens take his basketball-playing powers away a la Space Jam?
TMZ caught up with Bledsoe after the game, and the point guard laughed off his goof.
“Oh, that (expletive) was funny,” Bledsoe said. “It happens, man!”
Admirable to take the goof in stride. But also, no — no it doesn’t happen, man.
The good people of Twitter know a ridiculous thing when they see one, and Bledsoe’s mind shutting down certainly qualifies.
