Avery “A-very Bad Passer” Bradley likes to do two things: shooting the rock, and prevent other people from shooting the rock. As far as he is concerned, basketball is scoring and denying scoring. Other aspects of the game of basketball are not to his liking.
Which makes him a pretty darn good SG these days. Not everyone needs to be able to pass the ball. Not everyone needs to pretend they’re big and grab rebounds. Just take your jumpers, and play defense when you feel like it. It doesn’t have to be all the time. Bradley is 26, and he’s earned a few plays off on that end.
Bonus hot take: Brad Stevens’ system made him look way better on D than he actually is. I told you it was hot!
