I have already written twice about how Celtics players who were seriously injured last year were on their path to an impressive return. I might have cursed Green after the piece I wrote following his preseason performance, yet my take on Wilcox was apparently spot on. I've hence decided to roll the dice on Bradley as well, inspired by Jessica Camerato's article on him.
Bradley, just like Green did, apparently has used his time off to gain some new perspective on basketball, on the way he plays and sees the court.
Unable to do many physical activities with his upper body, Bradley focused on the mental approach to the game. He studied film -- a lot of game film -- after watching Rondo do the same over the years. Soon he began seeing the court differently, comparing the realization to solving a Magic Eye puzzle. By shifting the way he watched the action, he opened his eyes to a completely different point of view.
This is great to hear, and there is more foundation for hope in Bradle...
