Analysis

Bledsoe has done a good job distinguishing himself as the 2nd point guard on a team with John Wall. He has shown good potential to be a top-notch point guard, though he does need to improve his decision-making. He is an average perimeter shooting and has improved his range this season. On defense, he can be a disruptive force when he wants to be, though he does struggle a bit against more physical guards. He certainly has the ability to be a starting NBA point guard as long as he keeps working on improving his weak spots.
