Eric Bledsoe netted 85 points at a charity game in Alabama last weekend, and he was the game's second leading scorer.

At least one ESPN writer thinks that the Phoenix Suns have the "second-worst roster construction in the Western Conference."

CBS Sports' Matt Moore:

"Teams victimized the Mavericks by putting Dirk Nowitzki in pick-and-roll coverage and forcing Chandler to cover for him. He couldn't do it consistently. Phoenix is a different animal, however. Brandon Knight,  Eric Bledsoe and P.J. Tucker have all shown good defensive impact on the perimeter, and Markieff Morris, if he's still around, won't be as limited physically as Dirk is at this point." Can new Sun Tyson Chandler still be one of the very best defensive centers in the NBA?
