Bradley to start practicing in 7-10 days, playing by New Year
« on: December 05, 2012, 06:42:06 PM »
Was watching comcast. Sherrod said Bradley will be back practicing next week, go to the d-league to get into game shape, then will be back on the active roster by the New Year. My guess is January 2nd against Memphis at home after a 4 game road trip.

Can't wait!

  I'm really leery of sending rotation level players down to the D league for a few games. I don't think there's a ton of benefit and I'm somewhat concerned that opponents will play overly aggressive against top level players in order to showcase themselves.

agreed -- this isn't baseball.  Let Bradley get game action in practice and limited minutes in real games to get himself acclimated
Pick 2 Draft 2014: Cleveland Cavs:
Starters:
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Martin, Luol Deng, Serge Ibaka, Nikola Vucevic.
Bench: Andray Blatche, Tyreke Evans, Corey Brewer, Kosta Koufos, Rodney Stuckey, Anthony Morrow, Reggie Evans

I don't think practice is a substitute for actual game action against players who don't wish you well.

Good news for sure. I hope he comes out as aggressive as he was last year and doesn't think about his shoulders.

Cynical me thinks it's a business decision. Avery can sell some tickets in Maine.

I really cant wait until we get Bradley's defensive intensity back...

part of this teams problem is not giving 100% on every play defensively...Bradley is a guy who will come out and hustle for every single play.

whether his offense returns to last years form or not we'll see...but as long as his defense is there his hustle should inspire the whole team to play better

I am not sure I consider this great news.  It seems to me it is taking longer than expected.  I am certainly glad to hear the end is in sight but he has been out a long time.

I see no problem with him playing a few games in the D-League.

thought it would be about 2 weeks sooner. Probally could be , if push came to shove. But, I think they want him back to full strenght as possible before taking his lumps from the thugs like Wade and World Crime ( I mean Peace)  ;D
