I'm going with Shumpert. He's got the size and size is king. I'm unbiased. because I don't care about the Knicks and I hate the Celtics and wouldn't give any Celtic any kind of credit even if they deserved it.....oh wait. Just ignore that last part.

Wow people saying Shumpert has better IQ. I saw him blow layups, I saw him flying without sense all over the court, and then I saw Bradley cutting without the ball and playing off his teammates, in the flow of offense (which is rare nowdays). I think Bradley is the smarter player, has better work ethic, and jeez, he's on a legit organisation getting experience, while Shumpert wasting his young days learning from likes of Earl Smith and Anthonies.

I say it's Bradley, fairly easy.

Games as a starter last year:

Quote:
Bradley: 38 games

10.8 pts / 1.7 ast / 2.7 reb / 1 stl / .4 blk / 1.6 to / 2.3 fouls in 31.3 min

on 47.7 fg% / 38.5 3pt% / 76.8 ft%

Quote:
Shumpert: 36 games

9.4 pts / 3 ast / 3.3 reb / 1.7 stl / .1 blk / 2.2 to / 3.2 fouls in 31.7 min

on 39 fg% / 31.5 3pt% / 81.1 ft%

I think the only thing that Shumpert has a clear advantage in is his size, but Bradley is one of the fastest guys in the league. He beats anyone to the spot on defense. As you can see though, Bradley quadruples Shump's bpg at his smaller size.

Bradley is more efficient offensively, a very good cutter, averages less turnovers, and less fouls while playing as good or better defense.

I'd take Bradley 9 times out of 10, but I really like Shumpert too. There's a reason Bradley was such a highly ranked prospect out of high school.

I don't see enough of the Celtics to know how good Bradley is. But I CAN tell you that Shumpert's basketball IQ is very good. At the beginning of the year, he was playing PG and that's not his position. He settled down once he played SG.

And Shumpert CAN score. Watch him blow by people and put in monster dunks. Incredible.

Bradley easily. I have seen Shumpert fall for the pump fake quite a few times and he also takes a lot of stupid shots compared to Bradley

ESPNU ranked him #1 ahead of Wall, Cousins, Favors etc. This is why I think Bradley has the higher upside

Uh, uh, Mr. Dwayne Wade!

I haven't seen enough of Avery to really comment, but I can't wait till we get Shump back, he's ferocious on the ball. Haven't seen a defender like that on our team in forever.

Wouldn't be worrying much about Shumpert's injury, if you look him up he is doing very well. His return was meant to be January but most reports say he will be back earlier than expected and has been a beast with his recovery. I'd say Shump's ceiling is higher than Bradley's but atm Bradley has a slight edge, but saying that he has also had an additional season to get his game together and adjust to NBA level.

Bradley. But I'll gladly take Shumpert as consolation.
