On Bledsoe's Maturation.....

One can easily sense CP3's imprint all over Bledsoe's play. The natural abilities of Bledsoe plus CP3's rubbing his anointed playmaking to this young player would hasten Bledsoe's maturation. After this playoff, Bledsoe would fully mature and could no longer be held in the bench rather should be starting with CP3. The disadvantage is that you have 2 small guards starting , one favoring a half court deliberate game and the other a very fast game. How these could be combined effectively would be interesting and we are seing much of it now (and I guess because of CP3's injury) and it's result in this series. Freeing CP3 to pick up his spots (and he is good in moving without the ball) where he can either shoot or distribute the ball (like hockey)would lessen the playmaking pressure, would result to less turnover and could create opportunities for more point production. We have seen the Grizzlies defense against CP3 using taller and bigger players to slow him down basically blocking the right side and not allowing CP3 to go to his right which is his favored spot and the place where he usually scores with ease and consistency. We see the same thing being utilized by the Spurs against CP3 but with more consistency and result.... forcing CP3 either to give up the ball at once or forcing him to go to his left or to a heavily traffic spot or the side lines where he could be less effective and perhaps (as in last game) commit turnovers. Utilizing Bledsoe with CP3 mirrors the combo of CP3 and Billups. Bledsoe is shorter but with his speed and his ability to jump, he could bring havoc and chaos to the other team.
