Eric Bledsoe with the incredible chase-down block against the Kings (VIDEO)

Dec 22, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

Eric Bledsoe is an insane athletic talent, but buried on a very deep Clippers roster, has only gotten on the court for about 18 minutes per game this season.

When he does get out there, however, good things happen more than they do not.

Bledsoe got loose for this chase-down block against the Kings’ Thomas Robinson on Friday, and it was clear that Robinson had no idea Bledsoe had any chance whatsoever of successfully inserting himself into this play.

As Bledsoe trailed the play, you could see he was tracking it all along. As soon as Robinson went up, Bledsoe timed his jump perfectly, and swatted the ball away as soon as it left the offensive player’s hands.

    Gotta give the clips credit for refusing to trade this guy when other teams were inquiring about him. Although that could still happen….but hes a nice insurance policy in case CP3 does leave.

      U my friend know what ur talking about :) just wanted to add give clipps credit for trading for him for on draft night from okc for a future protected 1st. Two things come to mind. Imagine him on okc.. And if they still had harden. Scary. Ebled, wb, harden, kd, ibaka closing out games. 2nd thing is if he continues to develop, u might not need cp3 back and spend that money on another superstar at the 2 or 3.

    A lot of people forget this guy was a point guard in high school and a very good one. He converted to a two at UK b/c Wall was better. I wouldn’t trade this guy…especially if he’s still on his rookie contract. They will need a change of pace guard over the next 2 years and he’s it.

    The Clippers keep finding ways to win and Bledsoe is another reason why they do. Best bench in the NBA.

    Bledsoe was responsible for the bad pass that led to the turnover that started the fast break that made him run down the layup.

    That play happened right in front of me at the game last night. Also that alley-oop pass from CP3 to Bledsoe for the Tomahawk dunk late in the 4th which registered número uno in sports center last night. Watching these guys live is unreal, like my buddy said their like the Harlem Globetrotters with all the trick plays. Just hope they can stay focused for the remaining 56 games or so.
