Leaning on his elite defense, Celtics' Avery Bradley looking like All-Star in breakout season - NBA.com (blog)

Monday, December 26, 2016

From that day on I wanted to prove everybody wrong.’’He had discovered a formula of self-deprecation that worked for him. For his senior year of high school he was transferring to Findlay Prep in Las Vegas, which Bradley led to the national championship on his way to becoming Parade Magazine’s Player Of The Year. The explosive dunker, having rounded out his game, can see now that he hadn’t actually wanted to quit at all."Yeah,’’ admits Bradley. "It was a cry for help.’’For all those who look up to NBA players with envy of their skills and rewards, the lesson is that it is neither as easy nor as joyous as Bradley makes it look. He is emerging as a star for the Celtics because for most of his basketball life he has looked in the mirror and not liked what he has seen. He has been harder on himself than any of his coaches or rivals."It’s kind of like he has an Army mentality,’’ says Bradley’s closest friend, who has seen their rivalry flip upside-down. Gaddy, betrayed by the AAU rankings at an age when potential must be nurtured and squeezed, would play four years at Washington and go undrafted. He is now starting at point guard for the club VEF Riga in Latvia.Taking nothing for grantedAfter spending his requisite NCAA season at Texas, Bradley was expected to be picked among Nos. 10-15 in the 2010 Draft. Instead, his stock dropped after a workout with Oklahoma City, where he suffered an ankle injury that would require surgery. He now considers that setback to have been part of his good fortune."If I didn’t break my ankle, I was going to be a top pick,’’ Bradley says. "I probably would’ve ended up being in the lottery – and played point guard, and not been what people thought I was supposed to be. And then I could be out of the NBA.’’He takes nothing for granted. After being sidelined from training camp, Bradley was introduced to the NBA by the highly-demanding Rivers and his Hall-of-Famers, in particular Garnett and Pierce. "It was hard,’’ says Bradley, "but it created a tough skin for me. I was able to take criticism and learn how to be a professional. It was the perfect situation for me."I think of my entire career – my life – like that. I came in here, I was injured, didn’t get an opportunity. Just imagine if I was given everything all at once? I might be out of the NBA right now. Same thing in high school: If I was the No. 1 player right off the bat, I might be overseas. I might have got comfortable.’’Comfort is the enemy. Insecurity is his friend.Told that Bradley believes he doubted his prospects, Rivers half agrees. "I didn’t know he would ever be the consistent shooter that he is now,’’ says Rivers, who is now coaching the Clippers. "Avery has become a great shooter, and that is rare. For him to go from being below-average to a great shooter does tell you how hard he works. He worked his butt off with us, but then you almost had to with Kevin and Paul and that group."One thing I did tell him: 'Your defense is of a high-level NBA player. Right away.’ That was obvious. Where he struggled early on was being a help/team defender, because he’d never had to do that before. But I knew he was going to be a defensive star. I know I’ve told him that...
