The Los Angeles Lakers’ Anthony Davis talks on guard Avery Bradley’s, who was twice named to the NBA’s All-Defensive Team, ability to guard the ball:
“I’ve seen Avery play defense from afar, but to see it every day the way he gets after it and competes. It’s pretty special. He can really guard the ball, to the point where Coach [Vogel] said, ‘If he’s on the ball, just pass it.’ He’s very special on the defensive end. … If I’m guarding the ball, I know that I have guys behind me who can block shots. … It gives everybody the ability to be Avery Bradley in some sense,” Davis said, per NBA.com.
This past season, Bradley averaged 9.9 points, 2.8 boards and 2.4 assists per contest.
