Avery Bradley throw Rondo under bus?
« on: January 22, 2013, 10:23:19 PM »
I could rant about the problems of this team, but don't have the energy (much like....well I said i wont rant)!

Anyway, read into this what you will but Avery Bradleys twitter account, he says:

"Nobody will score 40 on me unless they take 40 shots"

https://twitter.com/Avery_Bradley

Obvious yet subtle shot at Rondo imo, and probably Doc.

Thought this was interesting.

Well i mean...

What's the point of having a 6'2 180 pound "lockdown defender" if you don't trot him out against a team's 6'3 191 pound phenom point guard? 

Bradley is a one dimensional role player.  Shouldn't he have been defending Irving all game?

Rondo must have demanded the assignment.

I only saw the last few minutes of the game.  So who had KI for most of the game?  Had to be AB right?

It doesn't really matter though.  KI just couldn't miss during the last few minutes of the game.  We couldn't stop his penetration and he wasn't missing.

Yeah that sounds like a shot at Rondo for sure.

I thought it was odd he wasn't playing him but figured they didn't want to work him too hard assupposedly isn't healthy and playing with messed up ribs against irving would certainly be a resipe to re injure.

In any case Irving looked pretty good even when he was matched up against Bradley. Bradley got called for a couple fouls on the few possessions he played him and got scored on a bunch.

He just deleted it.  That can't be good news.

The media's going to jump all over this.  Just what the team needs right now.   ::)

What a dumb move, I thought he was the kind of player that I wouldn't have to worry about with this crap.

He then tweeted "no shots at anyone, just confidence", but who knows.  Doesn't sound like something Bradley would do.

You just can't help it. Avery is far from one dimensional player. The system holds him back like it does with Terry, and Green.

Sorry Rondo. But Avery is the future of this team.

I don't think it was a shot at Rondo, Irving didnt even get 40 did he? I think its a shot at the refs because he couldn't guard him due to the whistle. It's just a you're lucky I wasn't able to guard you..type of aimed at Kyrie. It seems like that at least.
