Former Kentucky player Eric Bledsoe has always been outspoken on Twitter. He has tweeted over 4,000 times.
Sunday afternoon he tweeted something that could be read by Suns fans as Bledsoe saying he’s unhappy with his place in the organization.
I Dont wanna be here

Bledsoe is currently averaging five fewer minutes per game through the first three games than in any of his previous four seasons. It’s not the first time tensions may have risen. He has voiced his displeasure before during contract negotiations. Bledsoe is averaging almost 19 points per game in five seasons with Phoenix.
He was a crucial part of the 2009-10 Kentucky team when he averaged 11.3 points per game. Then again, this all might be nothing. There are a ton of places Bledsoe might not want to be at the moment.
Update (5:54 p.m)
There is now a good chance we know why Bledsoe was upset. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the Suns have fired their head coach Earl Watson.
Phoenix coach Earl Watson has been fired, league sources tell ESPN.
