Yes or no - is Avery Bradley a better point guard than Lester Hudson ?
If they both went to Celtics training camp in September , would Avery Bradley , hands down , beat out Lester Hudson and force the Celtics to cut Hudson again ?
And while we're at it, can someone explain why the Celtics passed on Mario Chalmers ? And if Mario Chalmers were at this years Celtics training camp, would he be able to beat out Bradley and Hudson for one available spot on the roster ?
Yes or no.
My point is this, why are some guys able to come in as rookies and get minutes every night ? I'm not talking about lottery picks.
What does everyone here expect we'll get out of Avery Bradley this year ?
Is he going to play 60-75 games and get 10-12 minutes a night ? (I would call that a HUGE contribution and a GREAT rookie year for Bradley)
Or is he going to play 26 games, make 3 trips to the D League , and spend the playoffs wearing a suit on the bench ? (I would call that a wasted #1 draft pick)
Finally, if Lester Hudson and Avery Bradley competed for one roster spot, and Lester won , what would you expect from him this season ? 60-75 games @ 10 minutes a night or 20 games for 7 minutes and inactive for the playoffs ?
