NBA players outraged by Avery Bradley's All-Defensive snub
The 2016-17 All-Defensive teams were announced Monday, and as with any award, observers were quick to point out deserving players who were left off the list.
After being named to the All-Defensive second team in 2012-13 and the first team last year, Bradley set a goal to win Defensive Player of the Year. But, despite his pesky perimeter D and contributions to the league's 12th-ranked defense, the 26-year-old wasn't named as a finalist for that accolade, nor did he earn an All-Defensive nod.
Many NBA players, who've played with and against Bradley, took to Twitter to express condemnation of the snub.
