Avery is back at practice today for the first time since having double shoulder surgery.

I'm not trying to be a downer as it may come off that way but I feel people may be putting a little too much weight on Bradley's shoulders..no pun intended. I see a lot of people talking as if Bradley is going to turn our season around by himself. The kid just came off DOUBLE shoulder surgery and its going to take him quite some time to return to form.

I expect him to struggle for awhile, hope he proves me wrong.

I see Bradley being the difference maker in these 4 losses. Making us 16-7 and a top 3 team in the East (exactly as projected) instead of a 12-11 8th seed straggler.

Exactly, that is what people sometimes forgot with Green is that he didn't play for a year and it takes time to get back into it. Hopefully Bradley hasn't rushed back and is completely healthy.

Hurry up, AB...for crying out loud :).

This team needs a spark...hopefully, he and Rondo can team up to do this once again:

What Bradley does is gives KG some help by slowing down poeple in the back court. If they wast 10 to 15 seconds getting into the offense thats less work for KG.

 And then Rondo can do is torro defense and try to get steals from behind. You can throw AB on the fastest and most dangerous guard on the floor to mess up the other teams offense.

Its not huge, but it will make a difference in the tight games.

Bradley struggling offensively(which he may with so much tie off like green did) is not my concern..

as long as he can play lock down Defense like he did last year
