Quantcast

Nobody can top the Phoenix Suns medical personnel in quirkiness department, that's for sure, but apparently our own coaches and trainers are decent challengers. Camerato's piece on Bradley's rehab process explains why there was a football flying on the sidelines during the warm-ups for 76ers game on Saturday1:
It was something we do to help my arm strength,” Bradley explained to CSNNE.com. “We try to make it fun at the same time. At first I wasn’t sure about it. I was like, ‘B.Doo (Celtics strength and conditioning coach Bryan Doo), this doesn’t make sense.’ Once I started doing it, him throwing the ball hard and me extending, I have to do the same thing with a basketball and I have to see if I’m able to do it or not. It definitely helps. This is our second time doing it. Since it helps me out, we will probably continue doing it.
If that's not enough, Bradley has also been doing boxing. The pad training routine helps him get stronger.

There are two other things I like about this story: First is that Bradley has been following the instructions strictly even though he hates doing all the conditioning drills because, in his words, "you feel like you’re in shape and it’s like, ‘Man, I do not feel like doing this every single day.’" One common concern was that he would rush himself after such a serious injury, but it seems like he has dealt with the urge to become impatient. Second, he has been dunking and has successfully held onto the rim once. That can only be good news as anyone who has suffered from a shoulder injury would agree with.

Let's continue to get excited for his expected return date of mid-January (or maybe even earlier) while watching the Celtics' successful journey on their path to clicking as a team.


1 If it were a Hawks game, one could say we were trying to put pressure on Josh Smith by making him remember the cheerful flag football practice this past summer.
