He is easily a 10/10 with 3-4 blocks per game with more PT, he is averaging about 24 right now. The league is pretty thin in legit centers these days and Jordan is looking very good with his potential and athleticism. He is no McGee in the brain department either, he isn't just trying to dunk the ball from the free throw line during a fast break.
i'm a big dj fan, but he does have issues. he's a great offensive rebounder, but beyond put-backs, he is still developing his offensive skill set (is that politely put?), and he's a d12 level free throw shooter.
And Bledsoe, I don't think dude is ready to start. Could he? Yes. WOuld he be effective? Nope. Dude still has a scorer mentality, he dries to the paint to much, jumps and gets stuck mid-air. His jumper isn't refined and his passing is still questionable. He is very fast and athletic but he just isn't ready to lead a team. It's good that he is learning from CP3 and Billups, it will serve him well in the future.
i've really liked bledsoe coming off the bench, but his play with cp3 down has shown how far he has to go. hes working on it and i think he'll get there, but he's not ready to lead yet.
