Twitter has created many bad situations for many people. From inappropriate pictures and language to false accusations and straight up lies, tweeting can lead to bad things. Eric Bledsoe of the Phoenix learned that lesson the hard way when a few words sent his career into a funk and put his wallet in a bad mood.
I Dont wanna be here
On October 22nd, after the Suns started the season 0-3, Bledsoe revealed his feelings about where he employed, although he later claimed he was referring to the barbershop he was sitting in. But the Suns, who fired their head coach Earl Watson that day, weren’t buying it and eventually fined the guard $10,000. After that move, you knew the team and player weren’t going to be together for too much longer, and today that reality came true as the team announced they would be trading their disgruntled star.
Bledsoe with be joining “The Greek Freak,” Giannis Antetokounmpo, in Milwaukee as the teams agreed to a trade. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Suns will be sending Bledsoe to the Bucks in exchange for Greg Monroe, a lottery-protected first-round pick and a second-round pick

So it looks like the tweet that set things off turned out to be a good move for Bledsoe as he’s headed to a team in contention for the playoffs. But it was also bad for Monroe as it removes him from that very team and onto a team stuck in a bad spot in the desert.
