Bradley proud of Durant's third consecutive scoring title


BOSTON -- Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant captured his third NBA regular season scoring title on Thursday night.
Halfway across the country, Celtics Avery Bradley was proud.
Bradley, like Durant, played college basketball at the University of Texas. Even though they were not on the same team, Bradley has close ties with former Longhorns in the league.
Us being from the same college, the same family, seeing anybody in the NBA, I feel like we are all a brotherhood, Bradley told It just makes you want to be like him. All you can do is respect him and work as hard as him. Watching him work hard over the summers, all you can do is respect that.
Durant averaged 28.0 points this season. Bradley, a defensive-savvy guard, has increased his scoring from 1.7 points per game last season as a seldom-played rookie to 7.6 this year. He has assumed the starting shooting guard position as of late, averaging over 12 points in the first unit.
Bradley is inspired by Durants offensive prowess, though he doesnt try to impersonate it.
Kevin Durant is Kevin Durant, he said. I feel like its just a gift that he was given, hes able to score. Im happy for him. The scoring title. Im pretty sure hes happy. Hes been playing good basketball all year. Kevin does some amazing stuff.
