2010 Draft "do-over" ranks Avery Bradley 6th

USA TODAY Sports

If the league could re-do the 2010 draft, here's one writers opinion of how it would go.

I like these articles that use what we know now to re-stack the draft from years ago.  This one was about the 2010 draft that featured John Wall going number one overall.  According to Smith, if it was done over again Paul George would be the top pick just in front of Wall and Cousins.  Then there's Larry Sanders, Greg Monroe and our very own Avery Bradley.

6. Avery Bradley, SG, Texas (No. 19 by Boston) Undersized as a shooting guard at the NBA level, Bradley saw his stock dip on Draft night. It was a foolish assessment by many, because Bradley has evolved into one an absolute lock-down defender at his position and one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. It will be interesting to see if he continues to improve under coach Brad Stevens the way he did under coach Doc Rivers.

Perhaps just as telling are the names ranked behind Bradley.  Guys like Derrick Favors, Gordon Haywood, and Eric Bledsoe (one of the top trade chips of the summer) all rank behind Bradley.  As does the actual number two pick from that year Evan Turner.

So getting the 6th best player in the draft at the 19th spot isn't too shabby.
