    Think his shooting is more to do with lacking PG skills to run an offense and getting guys the ball in the flow of the offense.  Some of those shots are desperation, oh shti I have to do something here shots.  He is not a pass first guy I'll grant you, and it's not like he's a great slasher either.  He has career bench guy written all over him at this point.

    Great defender, maybe Belichick can turn him into a shutdown cornerback for the Pats.

    As usual you can tell he is not a true Celtic fan.  He HATES Paul Pierce because Pierce is the face of the franchise.  The Captain and the Closer

    I think the Cs are looking at him (Avery) for defensive purposes....but with such a big lead he decided to work on his offensive game. Come on guys you gotta agree...that after seeing his offensive game it does need work.

    I know some of you are rooting for him but I can't see him staying past next year.  Marcus Banks showed more in his first year.  A defensive specialist PG who is not truly a PG and a small tweener SG who can't shoot.  You need some baseline skill and potential to play in this league.  At least Bruce Bowen was taller and can shoot the 3s. Sorry, I just don't see it.

       reguardless (?) or not.  It seems like AB likes to shoot.   I'm always a believer than when a team blows a big lead (small leads can just be momentum swings) that it's the pg's fault.   By shooting to much (then everyone feels they can shoot when they get the ball), not getting the ball to teamates where they can do something w/ it, turning it over, etc.   AB was having fun shooting against the Suns.

    Which is why Doc hates to play rookies! He doesn't have the time to teach basketball, he's trying to implement a system and balance time/energy/egos/injuries... Plus, young Avery's trying to assert himself among a team full of Vets and H.O.F.'s Hopefully, with time and his surroundings he'll find his way.

    I don't think it's that Doc doesn't like to play rookies.  He'll play rookies if they show enough.  He played Big Baby as a rookie.

    I agree completely.  I think Banks showed a lot more promise when he was here.  And Banks actually had 1 real good year after he left Boston.  Bradley might be an NBA level defender, but he's not in the same category as Marcus Banks or Tony Allen.

    I think you should see a psychiatrist because you're starting to see things that are not real.

    Wow we have some REAL Celtics fans here...

    One rookie takes a few ill-advised shots in a blowout game and we're ready to lynch him for the effort.

    This kid is 19!  What did Perk look like at 19?  Not the player he is right now, that's for sure!  How much did Rondo play his first year in Boston?  Not a lot!  Did he make mistakes like turning over the ball and taking ill-advised shots?  Yep he did!!  Both those guys turned out ok.

    Lets wait until this time next year before we start guessing as to whether this kid is a good player or bust!!

    Threads like this make me ashamed to call myself a Boston Sports Fan

    WRONG!

    He's 20 years old. 

    I'll advised shots that turned a 28-point lead into an 8-point lead? 

    When Rondo was a rookie he was a legitimate PG. Unlike Bradley who only has one thing in mind, shoot every time you're open!

    Avery Bradley is closer to Marcus Banks than Rondo.

    This has nothing to do with what he can do in the coming years, its about this year! Avery has proven so far that he is not a reliable ball handler. Rondo can't be point for the entire 48 minutes and Deltone is out for a few days, we need a reliable backup PG, otherwise we will be losing bid leads like we did yesterday!

    Celtic fans that's keeping it real, that's what some of us are. Pretending that Bradley is not a bust means that you're in denial!

    Ainge made a mistake drafting Bradley ahead of James Anderson and Damion James. Simple as that!

    Sorry, I am not a real Celtics fan.  Only real Celtics fan have nothing bad to say about their team.  That seems to be the theme of a lot of these threads lately.

    I happen to think Rondo looked fine his first year as a 20 year old, but only real Celtics fan can discern that he played about the same way as Bradley is now.

    PGs usually are reliable ball handlers. If Bradley is a reliable ball handler then what does he do that makes him a PG?

    Combo guard? He's not even a great shooter, hasn't even made a 3-pointer yet. If all he does is play great defense then send him to the Patriots so they'll make him a cornerback!

    I watched Rondo play when he was a rookie. And I can say for sure that Rondo DID NOT play like Avery Bradley.

    Avery Bradley is averaging 1.3 ppg and 0.3 assists per game while shooting 31% from the field and 50% from the FT line. Not even half of an assist per game.

    What skills does Bradley have that points to him as being a PG? Not a reliable ball-handler accoring to one poster here. Not a good shooter. Not even a passer. Can't even make him a SG because he's too small to be a SG!

    WAAAAY to premature. He is a rookie. Sometimes theytake a while to develope. I'd wait a year or three before I said that with any certainty.
