Doc Rivers Thinks Celtics Will Have Best Guard Core in NBA When Avery Bradley Returns From Injury (Video)


Avery Bradley won't be ready to play until December at the earliest, but the Celtics may have one of — if not the — best core of guards once he does.

The Celtics plan to have Rajon Rondo and Courtney Lee as the 1-2 combo going into the season until Bradley is healthy enough to take the court. Rondo averaged a double-double last year with 11.9 points and 11.7 assists per game, while Lee averaged 11.4 points per game for the Rockets.

Bradley is recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered last season that caused him to miss playoff time.

Check out the video above to hear coach Doc Rivers talk about his team this upcoming year.
