    Oh he forgot it was Bradley's defense that caused Nelson's injury,and forced him out of the game. The game turned,after Nelson went out,and Orlando couldn't score.

    That maybe true with Orlando, but you cant forget that Moore has 16 points and 10 in the fourth. He was the spark that caused this win.

    Pierce actually playing in the 2nd half was the spark. Garnett playing on offense was a 2nd half spark. Wilcox playing,instead of stinksa was a spark.

    WHAT IT MEANS
    It's hard to put this one into words. An atrocious first half wiped out pretty much all the goodwill that Boston had generated with its defensive dominance in Monday's win over the Magic. But just when you were wondering if we'd see the rookies doing second-half mop-up duty, it was rookie Moore keying the comeback.

     I like what Bradley and Moore brings to the Celtics, they will have good games and bad games, but they will both get better. Sure Bradley wasn't as good this time around, but moore was like 1 for 15 before this game. Keep giving them minutes and it will pay off.  The main thing is,what is our record with Bradley and Moore playing most of the minutes?

       Nobody hates AB personally.   He just symbolizes DA's ineptitude for drafting (as well as picking free agents).   He does what many of us could do;  play full court, then get out the way on offense.   5 turnovers to 1 assist against Magic.   Remember, this is The Celtics!   Most of you are acting like we're the Bucks and any warm body will do.   To be a Celtic, to be a winner in basketball, you have to know how to play baskeball.   DA  gives the Cs nothing in the draft.   When he does he gives a severely limited player who may not even be in the league in 2yrs.   A point guard body who can't pg or shoot.   This is why the Cs have no chance @ winning it all.   The Boston4 never get help of youthful talent (over past FIVE years).  DA is all talk.   No ability.   He just tries to bail himself out by talking about trading PP.   He needs to trade himself.

    Bradley has no role. He can't put the ball in the hoop and you can't have him and Rondo on the floor at the same time. Rondo plays 30+ minutes a game. The Celtics are inept offensively and Moore is a better fit with Dooling with the 2nd unit and playing with Rondo. Rondo and Bradley at the same time would be a laughable offensive unit. Moore knows how to play basketball and doesn't look totally and utterly lost on offense like Bradley. He did well in college and played in big games in college.

    your analysis is funny. Give Bradley 15-18 minutes a game on a regular basis and see where he is at age 24.
    Celts arent going anywhere this year or next anyways.
    Developed properly, Bradley could be a real asset down the road. Dont you see any of the potential? Stop looking at the box score or the missed shots. Look at a guy that easily gets open, easily gets his shot off. Can play the passing lane, his feet are as quick if not quicker than Rondo. Great hands. 
    People mention Tony Allen, but I dont see that comp. He reminds me of Westbrook (who was also horrible offensively his first year)

       rkarp, you and I don't see the same player.   I don't see AB easily getting open or getting his shot off.   He doesn't play the passing lane.   The D he plays is staying w/ his man.   Westbrook!   Really man.   Come on.   Westbrook like many rookies might have had some growing pains, but, he wasn't horrible.   When AB is on the court it's like a 4 on 4 rec league, where he just goes in the corner and sits.   Where he can't even get back it time if the other team fast breaks.  (OK.   against the Magic he cut to the basket a couple times for a layup.   Yea, I'm just on pins and needle waiting for that great offense to lead the Cs to another banner).   DA drafted him for his athletic ability.   But, this is the NBA.   You got to know how to play basketball.

    In Response to Re: Where are The Bradley Lovers? : I never said Bradley and Moore can't have a place on the team. What I said was Bradley is not an NBA player. NBA players are capable on offense and defense. Maybe next year Bradley will improve and become an NBA player. But this year, NOT!

    There is always room for a defensive specialist in this league...Bradly pays better defense, Moore plays better offense...Depending on the opponents...

    No, I don't see the good stuff that people are seeing in Bradley also.  My thought is that once people start to question a high draft pick player on his capability after a year in the NBA, chances are the player is not going to be successful.  It is not always true, but the odds are overwhelmingly against the player just from pure historical statistics.  We all want our very valueble first round pick to succeed but not many of them do and for me, Bradley has looked a lot worse than many other 1st round that have failed.  This is before the other bad stuff that we already know about him; height disadvantage at SG, not great PG skill, basically playing out of position at PG, suspect shooting ability, and due to his size defensively he should be guarding only opposing PG.  Tony Allen at least can guard upto SF, so for defensive specialist, Bradley is also limited.

    Re: Where are The Bradley Lovers?

    Moore is a much better fit for our team than Bradley. Bradley is redundant, small like Rondo without the passing. He might become a decent bench player but he's hardly a genius pick. Moore's instant offense is big for this team.

    Re: Where are The Bradley Lovers?

    These last two games have been against a team that have been exposed as a fraud.  I want to see Moore and Bradley do thier thing against the Heat, Bulls, etc. where there pg isnt a fraud.  Orlando is garbage and a trainwreck waiting to happen.  We still haven't beaten a legit team.  Im still mixed because winning will only delay the inevitable.  BLOW IT UP and get a high draft pick.

    Re: Where are The Bradley Lovers?

    BTS....Moore stunk up the joint up until last night.  Just like AB stunk it up previously before the first Orlando game.  Im going to reserve judgment until all of this is done against the elite teams.  Orlando is a flawed team that we exposed.  

    I like what I have seen so far, but this is still not a championship team and being a 6 or 7th seed is only going to keep us from getting a good pick and delay the rebuilding process.

      I agree, they both have a long way to go, want to see them produce against the better competition, but it's been fun to watch their moments of success.  

     I think they are an important part to the culture of this year's team.  The vets are feeding off their innocence and genuine desire to help their team and make it in the league.  They feel fortunate to be around the older guys and learn.  Seems like they all are willing to run through a brick wall for each other.  I'm liking it and if they beat Indiana tonight on the back end of a two game set, we're looking at a team on the rise.

    Yes, we are watching different games. I will repeat my preseason rant. Give the guy 30 games of at least 15 minutes a game. Westbrook comp. similar size, speed, defensive ability, jumping ability. Westbrook was just as awful offensively, but rapidly improved as he was getting 32 min's per game

    I've watched every single game Bradley has ever played in Celtics uniform sans preseason He's not NBA read. He's is a shorter version of Tony Allen with an evern worse offensive skillset. People say that because it's true. Turning the ball over constanly when they aren't even asking you to run the offense...you just have to get by half court and hand the ball to KG or Pierce is laughable. He has zero point guards skills and a worse J than Rondo. So he's a pretty good defense small player that can't be a shooting guard and point guard. That's great.

    Bradley is a good defender, offensively is another story. Pierce had 8 assists today, Bradley had 3. I thought he was running point!

    You aren't a good Celtic fan,if you don't understand the concept of point forward. Larry Bird was a great point forward.
