Avery Bradley’s All-Defensive Team Snub Pissed Off Several NBA Players

Avery Bradley often is considered one of the best on-ball defenders in the NBA, but the Boston Celtics guard was not recognized for his defensive efforts in the 2016-17 season.

The NBA revealed its All-Defensive teams Monday, and Bradley was a glaring omission. Several players around the league were puzzled by the snub, as they aired out their confusion on Twitter.

Bradley probably should have been featured on one of the teams, but he was up against stiff competition. Chris Paul and Patrick Beverley earned the honors for guards on the first team, while Tony Allen and Danny Green notched spots on the second.

As for the rest of the squads, Kawhi Leonard, Draymond Green and Rudy Gobert rounded out the first-team unit, while Giannis Antetokounmpo, Andre Roberson and Anthony Davis earned second-team bids.
