That whole discussion started from the statement that "Bradley is limited offensively". It's not controversial, it's factual. He has shown no consistent offensive game other than the short three pointer and cutting without the ball. That's limited.
What's controversial about saying Avery isn't a great offensive player?
Might be because they're implying that he's not just not great but inept.
Yeah what's controversial is saying something like all he can do is cut to the basket and that anyone can do that
I'm not saying that won't be a successful without ever developing more tools, but I don't see how something so self-evident can be controversial. Unless of course you think Bradley is the greatest thing since sliced bread, in which case discussion is pretty much pointless.
First, the facts are that he shoots at a good percentage from 3pt range and from the floor in general. That includes all of his shots, not just corner threes and backdoor layups. What he gets from our offense is what he gets from our offense. You can't say that he is limited when it may very well be that our offense is what limits him.
Second, your definition of limited would probably apply to over half of the guards in the league, particularly those on good teams with All-Stars who dominate the ball like Pierce and Rondo do. We can critique Avery's ability to create his own shot off the dribble, but how many times a game does he actually get a chance to dribble when he plays with Pierce and Rondo?
Third - everyone who thought AB was going to produce this kind of a change in our team believed so because of his defense, but also I would point out that the stats from last year indicated we were a superior offensive team with AB on the floor as well. Whether this is a function of the defensive improvement (something Doc and Rondo say often) or this is a function of AB's offensive contributions, or a little of both, no one really knows. However, you cannot discount that the team is better both offensively and defensively with him on the floor, and he deserves credit for that.
