When it comes to his feelings about his former employer, Avery Bradley is a little more Jae Crowder than Isaiah Thomas. Bradley was one of many casualties of the Celtics’ offseason, as Boston traded him to the Detroit Pistons in a deal involving Marcus Morris. Many fans were sad to see Bradley go — the shooting guard was one of the team’s most dependable and well-liked players who had spent his entire career with the C’s. When asked about the surprising trade in a recent interview with TNT’s David Aldridge, Bradley admitted he’s still trying to process the move. “Yeah, part of me still is,” Bradley told Aldridge, via NBA.com. “But I’m just taking it day by day, game by game. I’m just going out there trying to compete, playing the way that I know how to play, and not thinking about it. “At the end of the day, this is a business. I understand that. The Celtics made some decisions that they needed to make to better their organization, so I respect that.” But does Bradley, like his former teammate Thomas, question why Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge blew up a team that reached the Eastern Conference Finals last season?
