Avery Bradley: ‘I Don’t Care About Getting Embarrassed…Kyrie Irving, None Of Those Guys Scare Me.’

Avery Bradley has become one of the League’s best defenders, and was recognized for his lockdown D last season when he made the First Team NBA All-Defensive Team.

Bradley’s attitude may be just important as his skills as the guard has a no fear mentality. During an appearance at the Hall of Fame, Bradley gave insight into the way he approaches the game.

From Tom Westerholm and MassLive:

“I love the challenge,” Bradley said on Friday, making an appearance at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. “I love going up against the best players. I don’t care who it is. I don’t care about getting embarrassed. I don’t care. Kyrie Irving, none of those guys scare me. I know some players in the NBA probably get butterflies before the game, but not me. I’m licking my lips. I come excited. They need to prepare for me at the end of the day. That’s how I think.”
