Bradley

    Bradley

    1. Defended excellent  2.  Point guard skill lacking, but the team functioned with him at the point for a stretch or two pretty good.  3.  Second leading shot taker on the team.  Most of the time he shoots toooo much but tonight he looked for the open guy more.  HIS BIGGEST PROBLEM IS SHOOTING BELOW 25%,  this is a killer and must be corrected.  4.  He brought a sense of confidence to the team early.  5.  He rebounded and plays with energy.    Question will his shooting percentage make GM's back off?

    Re: Bradley

    Between Rondo and AB, only one of the two has a handle.

    Only one of the two cares to play defense worth a hoot...

    and neither of the two can shoot the ball worth a toot.

    Houston, do we have a problem?

    There is no problem, dumbbell.

     

    They complement each other. Both CAN shoot. Rondo can finish at the rim (very well) and DOES have that midrange jumper. Avery CAN hit corner 3's and is an excellent cutter. Avery absolutely needs Rondo back. His game will instantly improve. Its clear that Avery, kinda like Ray, needs to be set up, by Rondo.

    Their defense complements each other as well. Avery is on the ball, high pressure defender. Rondo is the smart off the ball defender. Avery pressures and pressures until the PG has is forced to make a low percentage pass and Rondo has the BBIQ to position himself for the steal. Rondo can also play on the ball at times, but he does so much for us on the other end of the court that he can't be expending the same amount of effort & energy as Avery. Just like Avery is not succeeding at ball handling.

     

    They are a great duo.

     

    They also can improve. You all are right in that what Rondo now needs is a reliable three point shot. That will continue to develop.

    Hmmm. We didn't realize that you enjoyed the comstant back and forth so much til just now. Enjoy BP.  ME? i'm ready to see it end, so dump him before hes shows who he truly is once he returns. Too much risk vs potential reward with a lower tier team. You dont build on a cracked foundation.

    Re: Bradley

    Rondo with Bradley won't work for this team.  The defense will predictabily collapse, as they did last year, exasperating our already weak rebounding.  A complete disaster with no outside threat.  

    We either need a SG who can create his own shot and is a real 3 point threat or a PG that can shoot from the outside and defenses respect.  Preferably both.  Smart or Exum and maybe Harrison could solve at least half that problem.

    There is no way that both Rondo and Bradley will be in Celtics uniform next year.  I wouldn't be surprised to see both gone.

    With Rondo and Bradley on the court, we are talking about 5 on 3 with no one able to make the defense pay.

    Avery showed good ball handling and GREAT improvement scoring in the paint. LOVED IT! Much better decision making. 

    Only negative is too many fast balls thrown.

    We don't need Bradley scoring in the paint.  We need him scoring from the outside.  Much more development needed for him to be an adequate ball handler AND a consistent shooter.  I hope he can do it and believe that he will.

    Re: Bradley

    When avery is at the two we really only need him to be able to hit a corner three to be effective.  Otherwise, we need him focusing on the defensive end.
