Hating Lebron is played out. The current man to loath on the Heat is Dwyane Wade. Why? Oh I don’t know.
And yesterday Avery Bradley, the two year defensive stud out of Texas was assigned to guard Wade. With Ray Allen out due to injury, Bradley has been starting in his place playing 36 minutes yesterday.
And after the win over the Heat, Bradley is continuing to build on his defensive reputation. He held Wade to 15 points on 6-17 shooting, including a flat out embarrassing block that left Dwyane on his ass. Of course the block would have been more impressive if the ball didn’t bounce over to the wrinkled skull Shane Battier who hit a corner three.
Hopefully Bradley’s play on Wade was a bit of foreshadowing for whats about to come in the playoffs. Because as much as I love Ray, his defense doesn’t hold a candle to Bradley.
