Avery Bradley Hits One of the Most Absurd Shots You'll Ever See

Grant HughesNational NBA Featured ColumnistDecember 4, 2013

Avery Bradley tossed in a seemingly impossible shot against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, catching the ball on a hop and flipping it over the backboard from behind the bucket.

He wasn't showboating, either. With the shot clock winding down, Bradley had no choice but to corral Jared Sullinger's air ball and heave it up off the bounce.

Come to think of it, this all seems awfully familiar.

I guess there's a long history of behind-the-backboard buckets in Boston. It's not often that we compare Bradley to Larry Bird, so the current Celtics guard should probably enjoy his historical highlight company.
