Who is Terry Rozier? An Open Letter to Eric Bledsoe

Dear Eric,

I understand that you have recently suffered from both broken ankles and a broken heart, but I was not aware that you had also been diagnosed with a head injury.

I am sorry to hear that you have a form of amnesia or memory loss and cannot even remember your own father, Terry Rozier. That must be a sad life.

This all came to the surface when you were quoted as saying, about Rozier, “I don’t know who the f*** that is.”

Since I am such a huge fan of yours and all the success you’ve had in the NBA (you actually made the playoffs! I’m so proud! How are your other Kentucky teammates John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins doing, by the way?), I will be kind enough to try and refresh your fragile memory (or is it just those ankles that are fragile?) on one of the greatest point guards in the NBA, Sir Scary Terry:

Terry William Rozier III was born on March 17, 1994. He played basketball for two years at Louisville before being selected as the 16th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics.

In his first NBA start, Rozier recorded a triple-double with 17 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, becoming only the second player ever to do so in their first start (Tony Wroten in 2013). He followed up that performance with a career-high 31 points in his second start. Since then, his career-high has increased to 33 points, occurring in his sixth game as a starting point guard.

Mr. Scary Terry has had many highlights this season, despite playing behind Kyrie Irving. You, Mr. Bledsoe, on the other hand, played for the Suns (pretty easy to be at least the second-best player there) and were unable to record a single highlight.

After you stayed up all night crying, bitching, and whining, the Suns finally traded you to the Bucks for a pack of sour skittles. You hoped that would help him get on Rozier’s level. Well luckily, you got your shot in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs! How did that go?

Oh, yeah…

I believe this is the exact moment you lost your memory. It makes sense that you wouldn’t know who he is since you obviously didn’t try to defend him. You must not have even known he was there. As you stood there, watching the ball fly toward the goal out of thin air, you must have been astonished. That’s probably why you didn’t move an inch. Or maybe it was because you couldn’t walk with those shattered tibias. Gordon Hayward-looking bum.

Terry is also the player that dropped 23 (8-14, 3-5 3PT. 8 assists) on your head last night, likely furthering the brain injury. Does that 14-point loss and 2-0 deficit still sting this morning, too?

Speaking of statistics, Terry has actually scored more points in BOTH games of this series than you have in total over the two games (46 for Rozier, 23 each game, 21 total for Bledsoe). I’m not trying to be rude, I’m just trying to paint a clearer picture of this individual you cannot remember. Here are some more stats that may help

2 Boston vs 7 Milwaukee Series Stats

PPG RPG APG FG (%) 3PT (%)
Terry Rozier 23.0 3.5 5.5 15-32 (46.9) 7-14 (50.0)
Eric Bledsoe 10.5 5.5 4.0 9-25 (36.0) 2-6 (33.3)

Is that helping at all? If not, don’t worry. I know for a FACT that you will remember him by Friday night when he comes to your stadium to burn the nets down. He’s going to celebrate 4/20 by lighting YOU up instead of whatever you’ve been smoking to make you this delusional.

I hope this has been helpful, and good luck finding a part-time job for the summer when your season ends in a few days!

Sincerely,

17 Rings
