Avery Bradley has joined the rest of the Celtics in putting up jump shots and working on conditioning in preparation for the upcoming season, which for him, is still slated to begin mid-December at the earliest. You can tell he is itching to get back on the court (ESPNboston):
“I feel a lot better,” said Bradley. “I didn’t think I’d be feeling as good as I do right now. Especially because I had [the right] shoulder done a little later. Right now I feel good. I started conditioning today, started lifting with the strength coach today, so I feel great. I feel like we’re moving forward, like we’re supposed to.” …
“You don’t want any setbacks, so I try to stay away from contact,” he said. “I don’t do anything I’m not supposed to be doing, like dunking the ball, even thought I want to sometimes because I feel so good. I try not to have any setbacks and so far I don’t have any. I’m on the right path.”
Good news to see that Bradley is both recovering and maintained his ‘never say die’ attitude. Also good to see he is showing some personal restraint in not dunking. The Celtics will be looking to get AB back, as he provides perimeter defense which will come in handy when defending that pesky pick-and-roll which has caused some problem in the first two meaningless games of the season.
