    Default Dime: Avery Bradley Will be 2010's Breakout Star

    I know this isn't Raptors related (just yet), but and interesting read nevertheless.

    Avery Bradley is an anomaly. He’s got to be, because for a guard with such an offensive prowess to his game — and don’t get it twisted, Bradley was arguably the best scoring guard to come out of a high school class that included John Wall and Xavier Henry — to also have such a hallowed reputation as a lock-down defender is really unheard of. For what he lacks in height, listed at 6-2, Bradley makes up in athleticism and bounce. Think Dwyane Wade’s offense and heart mixed with Shannon Brown’s hops. I swear I’m not making this up: the kid can flat-out rise.
    What makes Bradley so valuable in the League — beyond his wealth of potential — is his versatility on the court. His on-ball defense is quick enough to stick with opposing point guards and strong enough to battle bigger ball-handlers in the post. On the other side of the clipboard, Bradley is a smart offensive player; if you lay off of him, he can stroke the trey ball and if you crowd the perimeter, he will leave you on the back end of a SportsCenter highlight.

    The problem he doesn't have good size for shooting guard, doesn't finish well and doesn't draw contact, so he's not going to be a great offensive player.

    I like the parallel the author made about Bradley and Westbrook, hopefully if the raps pick him, he can show why he was a top prospect coming out of highschool.
