I thought that this video would go by without a single layup (“LAMEup”) from Avery Bradley, but he had to go and ruin my dreams with his clutch steal and layup near the end of the game, thus disturbing an unbroken run of sweet jumpers. I mean, yeah, it was cool that he picked Klay Thompson’s pocket (Should call him Lay Lompson because he has to hold so many L’s) and took it to the cup to pretty much seal the game, but if I’m going to sit through an Avery Bradley highlight package, it would be a lot more palatable if it didn’t have layups in it.
I was one of those people who thought that the Avery Bradley trade wouldn’t move the needle much for the Pistons, because he’s pretty much the same player as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. But I underestimated the impact of getting rid of Marcus Morris and allowing Tobias Harris to fully take the reins of the team. The Pistons’ intelligent offseason moves (or general lack of moves) paid off in this win over the Warriors (who are overrated bum trash by the way, the hardest road am I right guys?), but we’ll have to see if the Pistons are truly a playoff-caliber team or if they’re playing above their talent level at this moment.
