Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley addressed the Lakers-Celtics comparison and shared his thoughts about playing alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

One of the most exciting things to see in Lakers this season is the versatility of Bradley. In the past few seasons, Bradley has proven that he can score and the same time stop opponents with his tremendous defensive efforts. And now that he has found a new home in LA, the former Celtic looks to make the most out of the opportunity of playing side-by-side with two of the best players in the NBA.

In a recent interview with Fanatics View while inside the locker room, Bradley revealed his goals for this season with the Lakers. According to the versatile guard, the plan is to reach his full potential in all aspects of the game but the most important things is to be included in this season’s NBA first team all-defense.

“Reach my full potential in every area first and foremost and get myself an opportunity and make first team all-defense. That’s the most important thing to me,” Bradley revealed.

When asked about how it has been so far playing with James and Davis, Bradley stated that he is blessed to be given the opportunity to learn from two of the best players in the league. He even noted that he’s trying to “pick up everything” James and Davis has been teaching him.

“It’s crazy. I never thought I’ll have the opportunity to play with either of them,” Bradley said about playing with James and Davis.

“It’s been a blessing, I’ve been tryin’ to pick up everything and you know just take advantage of this opportunity because it’s not everyday you get a chance to play with two of the top 5 players in the game,” Bradley continued.

Bradley was also part of the once phenomenal Celtics team led by Kyrie Irving few season ago. Now that he’s with the greatest rivals of the C’s, the 28-year-old Laker didn’t want to make a comparison between the two rival teams. Based on his perspective, the Celtics team he once played for used to have a great chance of winning the NBA title the same way the Lakers do this season.

“My Celtic team is stacked (too). We had a lot of Hall of Famers. I don’t even need to compare,” Bradley noted.

Meanwhile, after Lakers defeated San Antonio Spurs 103-96 on Sunday night, Bradley has reportedly incurred a leg injury. Fortunately, latest X-rays came back negative and his status is considered day-to-day.
