"I feel a lot better," Bradley said. "I’m just so excited, I’m getting closer to practice. I see my teammates, they can’t wait to have me back. I just have to keep getting stronger, that’s my main thing. Every single day I come in, I see the trainers and have them test me out to see how strong I am. I’m just trying to get better ever single day."
It will be a good shot in the arm, and I miss the hard defense.
Having shunned the increasing Bradley chatter in recent weeks as interest has grown in his potential return, Celtics coach Doc Rivers offered a little mock amusement when informed of Bradley's informal update before Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.
"Is that right? Wow, that’s great to hear. I’m very happy to hear the news, I appreciate you telling me," Rivers said. "Honestly, I didn’t know that because I don’t check. Eddie will tell us when it’s time, I don’t focus on that stuff with guys being out. I have to focus on the guys wearing the uniform."
Doc loves to act like he doesn't know what's going on. He did the same with Rondo's streak. How is Doc out of the loop? Doesn't Doc see Bradley? Wouldn't he engage in conversation with Bradley? I just don't care for the dumb act. I agree he needs to focus on the guys that suit up, but wouldn't he just hear it the news before the media?
