This is a really fair argument. Age isn't a factor. Both guys are legit perimeter stoppers. Both guys are jump shot limited. Both guys can and have been disguised as PGs a little bit, which is a nod to their ballhandling even though neither is a PG by any stretch. Both are coming off of injuries.
The differences. Shumpert is bigger, which makes him a more viable defender against some of the league's more valuable offensive players. Sure they're both coming off significant injuries, but I'd rather roll the dice with a guy coming off a shoulder rather than a knee given what their particular skill sets are. And in spite of neither being a strength, I'd say Bradley masquerades as a PG when need be a little better, and is probably a tad better shot maker.
sew many opinions. anyways, i'm pretty much on the same boat as everyone. both have ups and downs... but in the end they are really the same player. but as a celtic fan, i will always have a soft spot for avery.
