Avery is 74 but probably the league's best perimeter defender.
I'm just going to copy this from Reddit:
Avery Bradley now ranks 1st in points allowed, 1st in opponent field goal percentage, and 1st in percentage of total points scored when he's on the floor.
Bradley's individual numbers pad his resume. Among those with at least 300 plays defended this season, Bradley ranks first in the league allowing a minuscule 0.669 points per play, according to Synergy Sports data (Milwaukee's Larry Sanders is second at 0.704). What's more, opponents shoot a league-low 29.7 percent against Bradley (Sanders is next closest at 32 percent) and score a mere 30.9 percent of total possessions (yes, also tops in the league, with Chicago's Taj Gibson his nearest competition at 33.2 percent).
I personally loved Avery Bradley before he got hurt last year, and really look forward to watching him play this year when it gets closer to playoff time. However, his 9/2/2 averages do not really warrant a boast. I tried to make this same point, that sometimes a player's greatness does not show up on the stat sheet, when I asked for Ibaka to be raised. I agree with you 100%, but ONLY IF THESE THEORIES ARE APPLIED FAIRLY!!!! We all know Ibaka alters so many more shots than he actually blocks, but yet people want to raise David West to an 84-85 just because he averages 3 or 4 more points a game while actually blocking less shots. I think Avery Bradley is the modern version of Greg Anthony, but going off of what we have used so far, he does not deserve a boast. If we decide to change this then I think he deserves about a 78, but until then I do not think he deserves a boast.
I think 74 is about right for him. He's too one dimensional, he can't really score, or shoot, or rebound, or get assists, he just plays defence, really really good defence but still. If Tony Allen is a 76 then I think Bradley is fine where he is. There is also the question of how much of his good defence comes from the Celtics and their system. Being a good defender is a lot easier when you have Kevin Garnett right behind you.
