Before the season began how many of you would have predicted that Avery Bradley would have cracked the top 10 of the Madness tournament not once but twice this season? Forget that this was a breakout season for him, all that matters is that he made this list. All kidding aside, AB’s ascension has been remarkable especially since he’s only 21 years old and can get better. As well all wish him well from his double shoulder surgery recovery (I still say he should have had bionic arms implanted like Jax from Mortal Kombat), here’s another play against OKC that had Celtics fans hanging posters of Kevin Durant on their walls. And Durant just happened to also be in the picture.
Seed #7 – Avery Bradley Posterizes Kevin Durant: Just before the all-star break, Kevin Garnett vowed that the BS style of play was over. This game at OKC was not the launching point as they got soundly destroyed. But the Thunder weren’t the only ones making noise. Avery Bradley completely owns Kevin Durant on this dunk, introducing himself to the rest of the NBA.
Seed #26 – Rondo’s rock-a-bye-baby Pass to Pierce @ CHA: When you play games against the team with the worst winning percentage in NBA history, sometimes things can get a bit boring. At least for players that are prodigies in certain aspects of the game. For Rondo, this rock-a-bye-baby pass to Paul Pierce is a perfect example of that. It’s also a perfect example of how fun he is to watch.
