The old adage in the NBA used to be “make sure you help yourself and don’t worry about helping the other team”. I think the Suns accomplished that. However in this case, I would be a little concerned because Dudley, ( who knows how to play) could go to any team and make them better. I like Bledsoe and I think he has a chance to be a really good player if his decision making improves. We all know he tries hard and will make some honest mistakes. I think Hornacek can help him and if that happens he will be a really, really good player.
