Tough call. If Shumpert wasn't coming off his injury though I'd take him because he can do what Bradley does but is much bigger for SG.

Bradley seems to have a higher basketball IQ while I think Shumpert has more raw talent.

Bradley is the better defender, Shump has a better IQ. I think Shumpert has a better upside.

Shumperts size may give him the edge here. But Bradley is probably the best pressure defender right now in the NBA

Default Re: Avery Bradley vs Iman Shumpert

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.

Really tough call. I like both of them.

6'2 180 pounds vs 6'5 220 pounds is all you guys need to know. Iman guards PG's just fine but he can also easily match up with SG's and probably the occasional 3.

Shump, because he's big enough to guard some 3's in this league. I like both of them a lot though.
