This prediction involves two major items coming to fruition.
First, Rajon Rondo must return, play well and not be traded. Perhaps none of that is bold enough a prediction for you. Well, secondly, the Rondo-Avery Bradley pairing doesn't work out.
There have been questions surrounding this duo for some time. Because they have both experienced lengthy injuries, we don't have an answer yet. Both are short but solid defensively. Neither is a particularly strong shooter, especially from long range. I'm unsure if that style of play can win in the NBA.
Therefore, MarShon Brooks will be slowly eased into a larger and larger role. As he continues to prove himself to new head coach Brad Stevens, Brooks will earn confidence. Eventually, Brooks will overtake Bradley for the starting gig.
Brooks is bigger than Bradley and a better offensive player. Alongside Rondo, both those characteristics may be more successful.
This prediction could also come true if Bradley suffers an injury, which, given his recent history, wouldn't be that big of a surprise.
