Having AD/JaV and even Boogie protecting the rim for you will be awesome for him.

Smart defender . Hopefully KCP can learn a thing or 2 from him because he’s capable but I think having AD behind them can make them a little more aggressive .

I am not sold on AB, but he is a good fit especially if we run a line up of Lebron, Green, AD and Cousins.

I think we will see a lot of situational lineups. AB in for defense, Cook in for offense, Caruso and Rondo leading more of the second team and early fourth quarter play.

Some ZLowe takes:

Quote:
TheLakersReview
‏@TheLakersReview

On Avery Bradley:

“Avery Bradley needs to kind of find his path in the league again, because he’s never been the defensive stopper I don’t think that people make him out to be – he’s good, he’s fine – but he’s too small to be like elite elite...

and when he was scoring a lot of points, he was just doing it on too many pull-up twenty footers and those have got to be three’s now … he’s a good shooter and I think he’ll do where there.”



And AB conference call:

Quote:
Matthew Moreno
@MMoreno1015

Avery Bradley says he "hopes" to remain with the Lakers for multiple years, after bouncing around recently. "I feel like this is going to give me some stability."

Avery Bradley on #Lakers' depth at the guard position: "As of right now, I'm just focused on getting out there and being able to compete."

Avery Bradley said he anticipates his role with the #Lakers being similar to his second year with the Celtics.
Play defense, make open shots, etc.

Avery Bradley shares a close friendship with Rajon Rondo, but there wasn't much recruiting done.
Nonetheless, Bradley said Rondo was a factor in joining the Lakers, even if he doesn't know it.

Avery Bradley: "To me, LeBron is the best player in the world, and Anthony Davis is the best player at his position."

Avery Bradley is "100%" looking forward to playing the Clippers. "That will be a game that's circled on the calendar for myself."


I can't wait!!!

...and we don't have to take them because they can't shoot either. They're all excellent foul shooters too so they can be in late to close out games.

Aside of the health and play of our stars, Bradley may be the key to winning a championship. I really believe he is that important.

36.3% last season which was the lowest of his career. Every other season he's been above 40%.

0.5/5.0 10.0% on 40% freq on 3s.
Hahaha. Wow. that's bad.

His pullup 3s were actually better in that time:
1.0/1.5 66.7% on 12.0% freq on 3s.

Yea, perhaps it was talking about his wait drop from start of the clippers season till now. He was coming off a groin injury, so one would assume he would put on some pounds.

Kyle Goon: Avery Bradley says he thinks that he got the Boston version of himself during the back end of last season. He thinks he can recapture that this year with the Lakers in what he views as the “perfect situation” and role for him. – via Twitter kylegoon


I hope so

I gotta say getting Bradley was a GREAT move, he’s a good player when he’s engaged, now that he’s 100% healthy he’s gonna be a Impact player for us.

Great Clip, err video, I never really paid much attention to this guy, but I think he and Green should start..

Lakers Defense should be much better next year!

I know he has had some tough years defensively after his early success. He is only 28 though. No reason to believe he can't regain his form.

Is his 2nd year an option or guaranteed? If he does have a great year his salary is a steal.

We haven't been in the playoffs in 7 years due to many cats and not enough dogs.

I like his bark, hopefully he plays with a bite to back it up as I am tired of losing.
