The second reason Curry impressed me is what he did to Avery Bradley. It can’t be overstated how great an on-ball defender Bradley is. He has achieved near-legendary status in Beantown already, in parts of 2 injury-riddled seasons. And since Rondo went down, he has stepped into the breach and helped this Celtics team go on an amazing run. Curry destroyed him. I’m not joking.

Bradley leads C’s Sunday workout
