Yesterday, Avery Bradley attended an event to promote childhood fitness and healthy eating at the Roxbury YMCA. While speaking to the media, Bradley mention Paul Pierce's potential return to the Celtics. Via Mass Live's Jay King, Bradley said:
I'm pretty sure everyone would (want Pierce to return to the Boston Celtics). Paul's an amazing guy and even more amazing player. I would love for him to be a part of the Celtics again.
I don't really know what's going to happen, but I'm pretty sure every team in the NBA would love to have Paul Pierce on their team. I just wish the best for him. I don't know what he's going to do. I haven't texted him or anything. I usually text all the older guys that I played with and tell them either good luck before the playoffs or good job, things like that. I haven't texted him yet. But I'm pretty sure he'll send me a text. He usually does every single year.
Regarding the future of the franchise, Bradley referenced something he said last summer:
Bradley on team: "I'm excited. A lot of people laughed at me last year at this time when I said we were going to make the playoffs."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 18, 2015
It's true, Bradley predicted all along that the 2014-15 Celtics could be a playoff team--and we made fun of him for it.
