Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe missed most of last season with a knee injury he suffered in December.

The 26-year-old, who led the Suns in scoring before his injury, should be ready to go next season and help the Suns improve upon their 23-59 record in 2015-16 -- their worst mark since their inaugural season in 1968-69.

But he said Suns fans have an important role to play, too.

During a Twitter Q&A Sunday night, Bledsoe was asked what the Suns need to improve upon next season. His response:

Last season, the Suns were 20th out of all 30 NBA teams in average attendance per home game (17,107) and 19th in percentage of seats filled per home game (92.9 percent). Those numbers were up slightly from the previous season but notably lower than in 2010, when the Suns last made the playoffs.

The Suns went 14-27 at home last season. Only the Lakers and 76ers had worse records on their home floor.
