The Phoenix Suns are probably the worst team in the NBA. They entered this season with expectations as low as anyone and promptly lost their first three games by a combined 92 points. On Saturday, they suffered a 42-point defeat at the hands of the less-than-imposing Clippers. Their defense once again looks like the NBA’s most porous.

Well it seems that the losing has perhaps worn on point guard Eric Bledsoe, who on Sunday tweeted, only somewhat cryptically, “I Don’t wanna be here.”

Bledsoe did not specify where he does not want to be, but we can probably figure it out. He’s the best player — and, at 27, one of the oldest players — on a hopeless team. You only get so many years of your prime, and Bledsoe is spending several of his playing for a group with no hope of winning anytime soon. His skillset could help plenty of rosters, but he’s stuck dragging T.J. Warren and Dragan Bender to 40-point losses.

Of course it’s possible someone tweeted that message from Bledsoe’s phone or something, but you’ve got to imagine he’s thinking it, even if he didn’t mean to say it. And as of this writing, about half an hour after the tweet went up, it has not been deleted. Most guys tell their general managers when they want out, but Bledsoe has found another approach.

UPDATE: Coincidence or not, the Suns have reportedly fired coach Earl Watson. It’s possible Bledsoe heard the news before the rest of us, which might explain his tweets. It’s also somewhat possible — if less likely — that Watson’s firing was somehow a response to Bledsoe’s public complaint.

Oh and also, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan is making a play for Bledsoe to return to L.A., where he began his career.
