Although he was unable to make Wednesday’s session due to a delayed flight, he more than made up for it on Thursday by taking extra time to shoot around and mingle with the campers. In the end, that’s what it’s all about for Bradley. He believes that the time he gives to this camp and others is well worth it because not only do the kids learn the game, they also get an opportunity to just hang out, learn life lessons, and see that their dreams can come true.
“This is my fifth camp of the year and I’ve been to every single one,” said Bradley. “Yes, it is time consuming, but I love doing it. I feel like I’m supposed to be doing this. When I was younger, I wasn’t fortunate enough to go to an NBA player’s camp.”
Last year Bradley posted career highs with 14.9 points and 3.8 rebounds per game for the Celtics. This offseason, the four-year NBA veteran inked a four-year contract extension with the Celtics worth an reported $32 million.
