The year Ed was drafted i was really high on Avery Bradley. There was a lot of talk about whether he was an actual pg or a undersized shooting guard, but i saw him as a defensive minded PG that wouldn't take much off the table that you could certainly go to war with. Then Ed fell to us and the rest as you know is history. I'm not going to argue picks, i think you have to make the Ed pick if you're BC and i'm a big Ed fan.
Nevertheless ive watched a few celtics games lately and one guy has really stood out to me, Bradley.
There's a ton of talk about who our future pg should be (is?) and i think Bradley could very well be it. I'm a big believer that you don't need a superstar PG to win anything, but you do need a very good one, especially one thats a good defender since that spot is the first line of defense.
So here we go:
Johnson is a throw in and could very well turn out to be a decent bench player. The celtics are still in "win now" mode and would sacrifice him in a heartbeat. They get Demar who starts at SG for them with Allen backing him up. That's what theyre doing now with Bradley starting so don't dispute it. We get Bradley who learns behind Jose for a year, but if Calderon ends up getting traded can start just as well.
The only thing i can think of is Boston likes Bradley over Demar, which is very possible.
