I was happy about the Bucks trading for Eric Bledsoe even though I knew in my heart of hearts that it would result in fewer minutes for former ROTY of the year Malcolm Brogdon AKA The Junkyard Brog AKA The Cybrog. But now I’m like, Eric Bledsoe is sort of sucking, especially at shooting the ball, maybe the Bucks should keep starting the Cybrog and move Bledsoe to a sixth man role?
Then I’m like, but Eric Bledsoe has shown that he turns pouty pretty quickly when he’s not getting utilized as he expects, so if you want to avoid “I don’t wanna be here” tweets from him, you have to start him. And it also makes sense from a talent perspective: Bledsoe can be a 20/6 guy when he’s healthy and everything’s flowing. Those are prime Dennis Schröder numbers.
So now I don’t know what to think. Brogdon has that solidity you appreciate from the point guard position, but Bledsoe has the speed, the scoring punch, and the All-Star-esque numbers to back it up. Luckily from my privileged position as an anonymous internet critic, I can be right no matter what direction the Bucks chose to go.
