07:05 AM ET 09.06 | For the first time since before he played at Kentucky, Eric Bledsoe has a team to call his own. While the Suns already have Goran Dragic on a large contract, it's clear that the organization views Bledsoe as the closest thing they have to a franchise player. He's the sexy acquisition who plays an exciting brand of basketball and will put butts in the seats. ... Jamal Crawford, who played alongside Bledsoe last season in Los Angeles and raves about his incredible growth, believes that the young point guard is poised for big things. "He'll be a star, no question," Crawford said of Bledsoe. "The guidance and tutelage from Chris and Chauncey and Mo Williams, who was here before, only made him better as a point guard. He'll definitely be a star."

Get most improved player first then I'll consider calling him a "star in waiting".

With Kyrie, Wall, and the PG from Portland (can't get his name right now) all ahead of him, Bledsoe's got his work cut out to catch up as a "star". Not to forget, there are a couple of really talented PGs in the rookie class this year as well.

Don't have to be a star yet, but the talent is there... Yes, he is that good! I wish the Clippers would have kept him...
