The Phoenix Suns were eliminated from the playoffs on Monday night with a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Having to sit out the postseason must be particularly disappointing for a guy like Eric Bledsoe, who was traded from the Los Angeles Clippers last offseason. Being shipped to a bad team is never fun.
Bledsoe had a lousy night on Monday. He scored just 13 points on 6-for-16 shooting from the field and was just 1-for-4 from beyond the arc. After the game, he had to put a Twitter hater in his place.

If this was 1995, the entire school yard would be yelling “ohhhhhh!!!!!!!” right about now. Bledsoe’s response wasn’t quite as elaborate as the way we have seen some other pro athletes shut their followers up, but it got the job done. He won the battle.
