Analysis

Bradley’s up and down freshman year was a mirror of his Texas team’s season. At his best, he looks like a potential superstar, and at his worst, another confused freshman. On offense, Bradley has shown great skill, but needs to be more assertive. He is a good ballhandler, showing good point guard skill. Also, his jumper has improved over the course of the season, though he may need to adjust his release point to get the shot off at then next level. It’s on defense where Bradley really shines, having the potential to be a game-changer. He covers well both on and off the ball and does a decent job closing on shooters. He needs to work on getting through screens quicker and he may have trouble guarding bigger guards.
