Eric Bledsoe Went From Not Knowing Who Terry Rozier Is, To Praising Him

 

In the first round series between the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks, one new-born rivalry stood out – Eric Bledsoe vs Terry Rozier.

When held to being a non-factor in game 1 by Rozier’s defense, Bledsoe said ‘I don’t know who the f**k that is’ when asked about him. As the series went on, the two were also involved in a scuffle.

In the end it was playoff basketball, and when Boston won the series in game 7 , the two hugged it out after the game.

 

 

After it was all set and done, Bledsoe even praised his opponent:

 

“I mean, it’s the playoffs. What, you expect us to be out there shaking hands, giving out hugs the whole time? S— ain’t gonna happen. He had a hell of a series, man. I’ve got to take my hat off to him.”

 

That’s how playoff basketball should be. Leave it on the court. Great words by Eric.
