Celtics Morning Joe: Is Bradley a wild card for the Celtics next season?

Posted by shawn cassidy on September 16, 2011 at 8:05 AM

 

We didn't get much out of Bradley last year,but is their a real chance we see anything from him in 2012? I'm sure this isn't the first time I have spoken about Bradley during the lockout,but with his recent 20 point game in the lockout league why not talk about him. I think overall Bradley is more valuable on the trade block. With Rondo eating around 40 minutes a night,and with Allen still in green,and West will re-sign here in Boston once the season starts. What room is their for Bradley? I said before he needs to move to shooting guard if he wants to be a Celtic long-term. Bradley has the build,and skill to become a small shooting guard,but I'm not sure he can do it by next season.


 

He's got the defensive chops to play in the NBA,but if he puts his offensive game together then Bradley is ready for some good things. I think the Celtics sadly might need to use  Bradley  as trade bait next year. We need a Center,or big power forward that can fill the void at center. Unless the Celtics can find what they're looking for on the free agent market,or if Troy Murphy can help out,and if others can step in as well. Bradley could be traded. I would love to see Bradley workout,and I would like to see him run and gun with Rondo. I still have a  bad taste in my mouth with the recent Celtics draft picks in the big three era. I hope Bradley doesn't fall on that list.

I think that Bradley and Delonte can back Rondo together, and that Rondo's minutes should be a lot less. The arrangement with Rondo needs to be that he plays less minutes, but plays harder when he's out there. Rondo needs to understand that we don't need him out there for 40 minutes if 20 of those 40 minutes are going to be lethargic and unfocused.

Unfortunately, I feel like we have a coach who gets tough when he shouldn't and is easy going when he shouldn't be. With Rondo, for example, I get the feeling that he goes ballistic over turnovers, when turnovers are to be expected from a risk-taking pointguard, but he's way too tolerant of Rondo's sluggish play. Also, if a young player makes a mistake, Rivers seems to overreact, with the result that we don't seem to be able to develop younger players.

I think he'll be gone by the deadline if their is a trade deadline this year.
