But obedience is the cornerstone of Andersen's system. Andersen calls this season's Cougars the best passing team he has ever seen, which Taylor believes stems from the unselfishness many of the players learned as missionaries. And BYU's field goal shooting is, at The Cougars are absolutely committed to getting points out of their front line, where 6'9" Jim Usevitch who returned last season from a New Zealand mission joins Smith and Chatman. But once a defense realizes that the ball is going into the paint, BYU has the guards—Taylor, Toolson, sprinter Marty Haws and the pesky Nathan Call—to step up and shoot the three-pointer.
BYU ran away with its game in Laramie The win in the Pit so flummoxed Lobos reserve Stan Whisenant that he reached out from his seat on the bench to knock the ball away from Taylor as the Cougar dribbled by.

It was a sign of things to come. For much of his career, Bradley was inconsistent in scoring and rebounding, but he always excelled at blocking shots.

But he shot a dismal He suffered a season-ending injury in February of that year, dislocating his kneecap in a collision with Portland 's Harvey Grant. Bradley returned to full strength in his second season, playing in all 82 games for the 76ers. His scoring actually declined a bit 9.
He racked up rejections, setting a franchise record for most blocks in a single season. Bradley gave Philly fans a glimpse of his potential in a contest against the Los Angeles Clippers in November, posting career highs of 28 points and 22 rebounds in a victory. He also tied a career high with 9 blocked shots, and was credited with 9 additional "intimidations" as the Clippers were held to their lowest-ever point total against the 76ers.
However, despite these highlights, Bradley continued to baffle and frustrate Philadelphia with his inconsistent play. He played the final 67 games of the year with the Nets, and tantalized Nets fans with some strong play in the second half of the season. Bradley lifted his game to new levels in March He posted a career-high 32 points and added 15 rebounds against Dallas early in the month,  and set another career high a week later with 10 blocked shots against the Phoenix Suns. In April, Bradley posted back-to-back triple-doubles against Boston and Toronto ; in the process, he became the first player in NBA history to record consecutive games of double-figure blocked shots twice in a single season.
The Nets began the —97 season under new management: John Calipari was named head coach in the off-season, and John Nash replaced Willis Reed as general manager. Reed had been a big believer in Bradley, but Calipari and Nash weren't nearly as excited about the 7-foot-6 enigma. In an effort to save some cash against the salary cap, the Nets traded their big center and his big contract to the Dallas Mavericks in a blockbuster mid-season deal that involved nine players.

Bradley embraced yet another "fresh start" with a new franchise. With increased playing time in Dallas, Bradley posted some of the best numbers of his career. In a game against the Clippers, he tied his career high by scoring 32 points — the most ever by a center in the history of the Mavericks franchise. He also added a season-high 16 rebounds in that same contest. He finished the year with averages of But most importantly, Bradley provided strong defense in the paint that Dallas had been lacking before his arrival.
In fact, Bradley finished the year as the top shot-blocker in the entire league, averaging 3. It was the first time any Mavericks player had ever led the NBA in any statistical category.
And yet, Bradley continued to be plagued by maddening inconsistency that defined his entire professional career. During the —98 season, Dallas coach Jim Cleamons experimented by bringing Bradley off the bench in several games instead of his usual role as starter. In one particular game, it paid off in a major way: Bradley totaled 22 points, 22 rebounds, and a career-high 13 blocked shots in an April contest against the Trail Blazers.
Bradley became the fifth NBA player to record at least 20 points, 20 rebounds, and 10 blocks in a single game, and the first to do so off the bench. Bradley finished the year with a team-record blocked shots; his average of 3. Bradley played 7 more seasons in the league, remaining with the Mavericks until his retirement in Over that span, his playing time slowly declined, mainly due to some injuries and constant juggling of the team's lineups and rotations by coach Don Nelson.
In particular, Bradley's offensive role became very limited, but he remained an imposing defensive presence. In fact, in the —01 season, he broke his own team record by blocking shots for Dallas — the highest total in the NBA that year. The Mavericks emerged as a perennial playoff contender, mostly due to the rise of star players such as Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash , but Bradley's defense made a significant contribution. He finished his career with averages of 8. Bradley has competed internationally for Germany; he and Dallas teammate Dirk Nowitzki were members of the German national basketball team that finished in fourth place at the EuroBasket in Turkey.
In order to participate in this tournament, Bradley made use of his birth in Germany to obtain German citizenship. After his retirement as a player, Bradley became involved with West Ridge Academy , a coeducational private school for at-risk youths in West Jordan, Utah.
