The only way John Wall doesn’t make dozens of All-Star games is if he suffers a career-threatening injury. And oh yeah by the way, this time last year Avery Bradley was rated ahead of Wall in recruiting rankings.
I’m desperately trying to talk myself into Bradley, I really am, but Bradley being rated ahead of Wall in high school doesn’t really help. Why not? Because right now Bradley is on an operating table somewhere while Wall is busy writing his 2029 Hall of Fame Induction speech. Well, either that or interviewing bodyguards to protect himself from Gilbert Arenas. Either way, I don’t expect any instant dividends from Bradley. As much as I try to sell myself on his potential and athleticism, there are reasons why Bradley’s production at Texas was flimsier than Shaun Livingston’s biceps.
