Phoenix Suns, Eric Bledsoe, fined for posting, “I don’t want to be here.”
We are just about a month into the NBA season and what fans were expecting to happen, didn’t.
The NBA is known for their imbalance in the league. Fans know which team always comes first in the top seeds and which don’t. The NBA can get very predictable which is why people don’t like the sport.
But, this season, expected teams who are suppose to be at the top, are not, and that was what shocked these NBA fans. Within the first two weeks of the start of the season, every team lost at least a game, creating no streak at all. Last season, we saw the Golden State warriors go on a 28- game winning streak to start off. This season, the Golden State Warriors lost their very first game against the Houston Rockets.
Although teams were not expecting this type of outcome, one player seems to really dislike the position he is currently in, Eric Bledsoe.
Point guard, Eric Bledsoe, had a couple of words to say to the franchise. With the Sun’s poor start to the season, Bledsoe expressed his feelings through twitter stating that he, “did not want to be there.” The Suns sent him home two weeks ago and he has not played since.
His lack of sportsmanship caused him a leave of absence until the Suns find the right trade offer. He refuses to rejoin the team and only uses their facilities to maintain his workout regimen.
The NBA got involved and fined Eric Bledsoe $10,000 for the tweet. The NBA wants players to know that it is unacceptable to go off on social media. If there is a problem, they want players to handle it in a different way.
As for Eric Bledsoe, he is still making money even if he is not on the bench supporting his team.
