When you think of the Los Angeles Clippers, you think of ferocious dunks, fast breaks, and “lob city.” Bledsoe is sometimes the one throwing it up to one of the bigs, and sometimes he is the one throwing it down on a defender. Eric will compete to become just the third Clipper to win a dunk contest, joining Blake Griffin and Brent Barry. “Pretty much everybody watches the dunk contest, so the NBA selecting me [means] they think I’ve got a chance to win,” Bledsoe said. “It’s a great situation.” (Clippers Official Website)
