At age 22, Avery Bradley is the youngest of this group and is currently in his third year in the league. Since Rajon Rondo went down with a season-ending ACL tear, Bradley has taken over the point and proven himself worthy of a starting spot in Boston.
In particular, Bradley had a solid game on Feb. 25 against Utah, totaling 18 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 39 minutes to help lead the Celtics to a 110-107 win.
As ESPN Boston detailed, Bradley has stepped up “to a key role as the team’s first-string quarterback” and has displayed an “infectious defensive intensity.” Bradley is a huge reason for the Celtics’ recent success, and he will surely remain a force to reckon with in Boston.
