Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan appears to respond to Eric Bledsoe
Earlier today, Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe rocked the NBA world with a single, unforeseen tweet. In the middle of most of the Sunday NFL madness, Bledsoe took to Twitter to let fans know how he really felt in saying “I dont wanna be here.”

Obviously, the first thing that comes to mind is that Bledsoe wants to be traded from the Suns after their horrid 0-3 start to the season. Phoenix came out flatfooted and disinterested in their season opener, trailing the Portland Trail Blazers by as many as 58 points in what was a 48-point home loss. They then followed that up with a two point loss to the lowly Lakers and a 42 point loss to the LA Clippers on Saturday night.
Speaking of the Clippers, Bledsoe’s former team, DeAndre Jordan tweeted out what clearly seems to be a response to Bledsoe’s tweet, telling him to come on back home to Los Angeles.
Come back home bro

Bledsoe played the first three years of his career with LA, averaging just 6.7 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.2 steals per game in a limited 19.6 minutes per game. He was then traded to the Suns once the Clippers acquired Chris Paul and then signed a new deal with Phoenix.
The rebuilding process has been frustrating for Bledsoe, as he’s dealt with a number of injuries and has been benched after the All-Star break the past few years for better odds at a high draft pick. On top of that, the Suns have also been trying to trade him for a few years now to get one step closer to rebuilding and starting anew, but they’ve been unsuccessful.
