Our Sports Tonight crew discusses the Celtics draft, and whether or not it was a success.
And they're they are numbers zero is Avery Bradley. Number 55 is Eric Williams right made a -- yeah it looks just -- got a a 68 forward from Notre Dame. Big east player of the year both of these guys were introduced today in Waltham. They were excited by the atmosphere of the tradition the batters all that stuff one of them. Bradley said you know what I'm gonna try to learn as much as I can as quickly thank you. With the coaches staff in injustice hope program run. I know that they're going to be behind me and I'm going to work hard to come in every day aluminum learn from the older guys especially Rondo. How to play the point guard position. While back that show holly meter here in the Dick's Sporting Goods Hall of Fame now this guy Bradley. What's the number one rated high school player it is in America last year over job loss job at all with the number one pick in the draft Bradley was nineteen. How do you feel about -- you're excited about the upside are you thinking. What's wrong with this guy that he slept all night. I'm not -- Chose -- optimistic yeah -- you know -- -- doesn't -- -- -- I don't play well I like this pick Michael because you know what today it sounds like rush hour on the lights needs to improve his shooting as a pretty good mid grade midrange game right now good on the ball defender Doc Rivers says it can come and and defend any point guard your energy get out what this -- of off the bench. What could go -- all I don't know maybe eight surgically repaired neck. Dad dad doesn't make you go to good actually -- excited about the second topic for a couple of reasons one. Again it's got a good job in the second round either draft and those guys. Slightly off hole trading for them we traded Leon Powe and -- for big baby. Drafted Ryan Gomes that's one in the second reason I'm excited about this. Because these guys into these productive players tend to slip through the cracks. Because they're undersized and and they're very productive and they can play in the league but I elicits. -- Honda Center Antonio Spurs are the best team in the business. You look at perhaps. They drafted twentieth -- -- that is what I. I -- Dave Henderson. Up the celtics' path and as soon as they pass from John. That -- would probably what four minutes of 57 seconds left on the clock. They just not the clock didn't have to. Hope don't you get a little bit nervous that within Antonio Spurs who draft like maybe they're damn -- Georgia last year vein. -- got the Celtics have to. About you know -- I was -- on James Anderson as you are. -- I need to shoot and they need somebody to score the ball to pick sort of look Eric noted that scored the other Kerrigan yes supposed to watch box score all the what's the upset the big kid. I'm not worried about this Michael I think they addressed the good -- they need a backup point guard they got one in Avery Bradley's lines and Nichols in okay they have back to guard. I think so that they do a lot then but doesn't mean they can't get those guys down the stretch.
