Any athlete who chooses to be on social media knows full well that they're likely to face criticizing from time to time. It's how they deal with this criticism that matters though.
Let's take Eric Bledsoe for example. The Phoenix Suns guard is averaging 18 points and 5.5 assists per game this season. So it's safe to say he's been a pretty productive player.
These stats have apparently been lost on one Twitter follower who decided to call Bledsoe out for being "THE WORST PLAYER IN THE NBA." Bledsoe responded in the simplest and most mature manner imaginable.
Yo mama RT @MEdwardsILP: @EBled2 YOU’RE THE WORST PLAYER IN THE NBAVia The Big Lead
