LeBron James recently posted on his Instagram account a photo of him practicing with the spitfire point-guard Eric Bledsoe who last played for the Phoenix Suns. Eric is now a restricted free agent so this Insta-Post will spice things up.
But apparently, the pic's caption will clarify everything. LeBron stated "Great work today lil bro @ebled2!! Future All-Star in this league in no time. "PHX break bread". #Klutch #Work #GymRats #StriveForGreatness."
Pay attention to the "PHX break bread" slang. It was popularized by famous rapper Plies in his songs. "Break Bread" means to share the wealth with the homies or in transaction jargons it means to settle differences between two parties or for two unknown parties to form a new connection.
LeBron is probably letting the Suns know how good E-Bled is and that they should sit together and talk things out.
As per azcentral:
"The "break bread" reference could be interpreted a few ways but it likely is about sharing money, as in a suggestion that the Suns pay Bledsoe. At the outset of free agency July 1, Bledsoe sought a contract approaching the maximum level ($80 million over five years). He received a four-year, $48 million offer from the Suns and did not sign an offer sheet from another team over more than two months of an open market. "Break bread" could also be a reference to sitting down over a meal to negotiate, something that Bledsoe's camp has not been willing to do much."
If Phoenix and Eric won't find a common ground, you already know what will happen next....
