The Questionably Exciting State of the Phoenix Suns Backcourt

I don't know what is going to happen with Eric Bledsoe or Brandon Knight this summer ... Do you? Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight have contrasting styles of play that beautifully blend together when they share the court. Bledsoe -- for lack of a better term -- is an ox, while Knight is more of the jackrabbit mold. This was the thinking when Ryan McDonough sacrificed Isaiah Thomas and the Lakers' protected first round pick for the services of Knight back in February of 2015: Take two players with dynamic -- yet different -- skill sets and unite them to form a formidable backcourt that would...

Would the Cavaliers have a shot in the NBA Finals if they had Eric Bledsoe instead of Kyrie Irving?

Changes are coming this summer in Cleveland. The Golden State Warriors are going to be NBA champions. You already knew that. After the Dubs put a bow on this series in the next week or so, GM LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will look to make some changes in the offseason.
