The one crucial point that has hardly been touched on in this discussion is Bradley's injury status.
Two bum shoulders at his age. Not one. Two. Anyone who's ever had shoulder surgery and tried to play basketball (let alone at the professional level), will tell you how difficult is it to harness your game. He already wasn't the strongest shooter; he's missed a lot of time (without handling or shooting because of the injury), and he's waaaay too young to already have problematic shoulders.
This will be an issue for Bradley for the rest of his career, mark these words.
Even as a superior perimeter and man defender, he will have to adjust the physicality of his game, and the range of motion in his arms will be slower and limited, no matter what any doctor tells you. Your shoulder is the only joint in your body that does "180 degree" (depending on one's flexibility) ranges of motion; this also makes it one of the more easily compromised joints in the body. Bradley is what? 23, 24? Younger?
Unfortunately, HE WILL NOT LAST, and we may never see him at the level he was playing last season.
With that said, our lack of scoring and post-defenders down low is also an issue on this team, aside from everyone's fixation on "Welll durrrrr, who's gunna guard Wade?
We don't have Bradley now to guard Wade, who's to say and guarantee when he returns, that he will be performing at that level???
If we can get a SOLID scoring and defending big man like Gortat, WHO WILL START
, why on Earth are we questioning a package that features a severely INJURED Avery Bradley, maybe one other player, and a draft pick?
A package of Bradley, Kris Joseph, and either a 1st or 2nd rounder is about what it's taking?
We have to be all over that. Use your heads guys! If the Suns want to get trade raped again by us (Rondo reference), then let them do it!
