Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe would bet on his old school, if for whatever reason, the Philadelphia Sixers ever had to play a seven-game Playoff series against the Kentucky Wildcats.
The 0-10 Sixers are the NBA’s only winless team, but no one seriously thinks a bunch of college kids (no matter how talented) could beat them.
Well, Bledsoe claims to.
Per Philly.com (via Sirius XM):
“I’m definitely taking Kentucky,” Bledsoe said when asked who would win in a seven-game series between the two teams. “I think Philly would get probably, maybe one game.”
Bledsoe acknowledged that the Philadelphia faithful likely wouldn’t be happy with his opinion.
“I know [the Sixers fans] are going be mad, but I love my Wildcats.”
