#O_OClipOfTheDay

December 22, 2012

Top to bottom the Clippers are the most athletic team in the NBA. This squad is built to run the floor, and to score and defend in transition which makes them a matchup nightmare. LA’s “other” team is riding a 12 game winning streak and is sitting atop the Pacific Division. Their early season success is in large part due to their depth, the bench averages over 35 ppg. When the starters are resting, dynamic playmakers like Eric Bledsoe have maintained and often times extended Clippers’ leads.

In the clip above, Eric Bledsoe shows off his elite athleticism with a “LeBronesque” chase down block in transition that lead to a Ronny Turiaf dunk. The 3 year pro from Kentucky is flourishing in his role off the bench. Despite taking a back seat to John Wall/DeMarcus Cousins in college, and Chris Paul/Blake Griffin in the pros, Bledsoe is a solid player. He brings energy, effort, and toughness to go along with being a hell of a athlete. He is taking advantage of increased playing time this season and is averaging career highs in just about every category.

What’s so scary about this Clippers team is that they are just scratching the surface of their full potential…
