Avery Bradley Celling?

I think it's going to be really good in 2 years

is very similar to the Russell Westbrook
I think you can put 15-18 ppg 5 rpg 5 apg 1,5-2 spg 0,5-1 bpg
I love this player and I think will be a reference to the new celtics

I think it's high, how high?

I think it's high, how high? Don't know, Rondo or Bradley has to leave in order for him to reach his full potential, or at least for it to be on display.

Bradley is a two and active

Bradley is a two and active enough on defense to compensate for his lack of size with a great defensive I.Q

Bradley is the Celtics future 2 guard

Recently, I have found out Bradley is only 6"2, watching his game against the Heat, that kid plays like he's 6"4! I actually thought Bradley was 6"4

Bradley

He was a top recruit coming out of high school, so I think that his ceiling is higher than most would think it is.

high

i think his ceiling is high. on some recruiting websites, he was actually the #1 out of high school. unfortunately, he went to texas on a team that had too many good players and not enough minutes. i think rick barnes really screwed that year up and hurt bradley's stock in the process. he played a lot of the 2 in college because texas had balbay, lucas and brown at times running the point.

i think he'll eventually transition into a starting pg. i think that is why the celts had rondo on the block this year. he's really showing a lot more confidence on his jumper and his mid range game looks solid. and defensively, well doc rivers said he was the best perimeter defender in the draft that year; might be the best in the league.

To be honest I forgot he even

To be honest I forgot he even played. I liked him a lot then he disappointed (me at least) at Texas. Good to hear he's playing well lately.

Bradley has long arms

And is very strong he wont get punished by two guards. He can play the two and has proved that by not letting any two eat him thus far.

I dunno. I like you FranFran

I dunno. I like you FranFran but Russell Westbrook comparisons might be a best BEST BEST case scenario.

I've been impressed the way he's held his own since the Ray Allen injury. Him and Rondo in the backcourt cause havoc for opposing backcourts and Bradley isn't afraid to get up on someone. That's why I see a lot of Lindsey Hunter in their games. It's a safer comparison IMO. That's no disrespect, Lindsey Hunter found ways to stay on a roster for 16 seasons. Earlier in his career, he was good for double digit scoring with the Pistons, which his best season was 14.2 ppg in 96-97. Bradley will stick around for the same reasons Hunter did. Whether or not if it's in a Celtics uniform remains to be unseen but I do like the possibility of Bradley as a Celtic for the next 5-10 years.

nothing like westbrook won't

nothing like westbrook

won't be a full time point, can't run a team.

i think he and rondo are going to be the starting backcourt for a long time.

kid was filthy to watch in hs, absolutely filthy. right now he has a nice mid range j, if he can extend it out to the arc on a consistent basis it will help him immensely.

He will be an above average

He will be an above average starter and can be Tony Douglas level impactful on D with a superior offense. Bostin is EXCELLENT at developing talent. A high upside player just seems to develop on that club.

Bradley is a SG

He played Shooting Guard most of his career that includes highschool and college.

he is undersized but had all the tools defensively to guard 2s in the league

was never a great play maker but really good scorer whos a shooter thats really athletic...when he gets more confidence he will really start knocking down open jumpers for the Celtics

Rondo missed some games and they

Went 6-2 with Avery starting at the point. Does have plenty of PG skills as well. Better as a two, but the cant run a team comment is false.

A slightly better version of

A slightly better version of Tony Allen? With more of an ability to run the point, but I see him playing a similar role.

Tony Allen is what I meant.

Tony Allen is what I meant. Sorry, was getting ready for bed when I posted and utterly messed that up. Also managed to make Boston to Bostin.

I see Avery Bradley's ceiling

I see Avery Bradley's ceiling as that of a defensive star, not guys like Westbrook or Monta who are known for filling it up first and foremost. I understand that neither is a true distributer, like Bradley, so I see that, but I don't think Bradley will ever be a prolific scorer. He has a nice shot, but I don't see that kind of offensive mentality of a first option player.

I'm going to say his ceiling is that of Mookie Blaylock because I feel his most valuable asset will be his defense. He's not a premeir distributer, but if he keeps getting minutes at the PG then I feel he'll develop there. Mookie was a guy who averaged between 6-8 for the majority of his career and scored between 11 and 18 during his prime.

I'm going with Mookie, as Bradley's best case. Career averages of 13.5 ppg 6.7 apg 2.3 steals 1 time All-Star, 6 time All-defensive team.
