Can Avery Bradley play lead guard?
It’s been an up-and-down season for the young Celtics guard, who looked ready to break out earlier this season in the absence of Rajon Rondo. Boston’s defense has greatly improved since Bradley’s return, the team moving from the middle of the pack in defensive rating to 6th at season’s end. Bradley is absolutely a factor on D, but the rest of his game has fallen off the rails recently. He shot just 36 percent from the field in 16 March games. He only slightly improved in April. There’s a lot of pressure on this 22-year-old kid.
