Garnett’s tough love for Bradley appears to have sunk in. On Friday, Bradley said he not only doesn’t fear practice any more, he doesn’t fear any of the league’s top guards. He said he’s ready for whatever challenge the league throws at him. Those challenges might include Stephen Curry’s unbelievable range, Kyrie Irving’s handle or Damian Lillard’s offensive versatility. They also might include acquiring a keepsake from one of his most influential mentors. “This year, I was telling my teammates when we were playing in Minnesota, I was like, ‘I don’t think KG’s gonna give me a jersey,'” Bradley said. “My teammates were like, ‘Man, what? He doesn’t talk to nobody but you. He’s gonna give you a jersey.’ I asked one of the ball boys and he was like, ‘He just turned down Jeff Green. He’s not giving one to anybody.’ So I asked, and KG wrote me a letter like, ‘I love you. This jersey is for you, keep working hard.’ He wrote me a letter, and now I have his jersey up at my house.”
Chris Forsberg: Avery Bradley on Boston’s offseason moves: “I’m excited. I feel like they added some great pieces. Al Horford is a very good player, a great team player. I was actually with Jeff Teague this summer in Vegas at an Adidas event and he was telling me how he’s really going to help our team out a lot. He’s a great locker room guy, a great player. I’m excited to have a chance to play with him, learn things from him. To add him to this culture, I’m excited about it.”

Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley has long been considered one of the league’s best on-ball defenders. It’s a reputation he began building in his early years playing with the trio of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and harassing opponents the entire way up the floor, and it’s one he cultivated enough to earn All-Defense First Team honors this past season. One of his secrets? Bradley said he isn’t afraid of getting embarrassed. “I love the challenge. I love going up against the best players. I don’t care who it is. I don’t care about getting embarrassed. I don’t care. Kyrie Irving, none of those guys scare me. I know some players in the NBA probably get butterflies before the game, but not me. I’m licking my lips. I come excited. They need to prepare for me at the end of the day. That’s how I think,” Bradley said on Friday, making an appearance at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
