The NBA chose to play in the rematch at the Disney campus in Orlando, and players need to isolate themselves to play. For family reasons, Bradley chose not to participate in the rematch. Since then, there has been no news about Bradley.
Bradley is the only main player among the championship teams to retire. His retirement has a big impact on both ends of the Lakers' offense and defense. During this period, Lakers player Danny Green also said that his teammates tried to contact Bradley, but found that they could not.
It seems that Bradley is deliberately alienating the Lakers teammates. But he said that in the past two months or so, he has been cheering for the Lakers at his home in Texas. He said: "I watched every game of the Lakers and I am still a member of the Lakers. I have worked for the championship throughout my career. I know that I am very close to the championship, and I am one of them. Part of it. Even if I was not there, it was still a wonderful feeling."
Bradley also revealed that he has contacted Lakers general manager Pelinka. Pelinka emphasized that Bradley is also an important part of the Lakers' success this season. In fact, as early as July, Pelinka said that if the Lakers win the championship, they will definitely give Bradley a championship ring.
In the regular season, Bradley played an important role in the Lakers. As the team's starting guard, Bradley averaged 8.6 points per game and 36.4% from three-pointers. With a strong defensive ability, Bradley sits firmly in the starting position of the Lakers. Due to Bradley's retirement, Pope replaced his vacancy well.
