Professional career 
At the 2010 NBA Draft he was selected as the 19th pick by the Boston Celtics. He signed his rookie deal with the Celtics on July 2, 2010. On January 14, 2011, the Celtics assigned Bradley to the Maine Red Claws of the NBA D-League and on the same day made his debut game for the team, playing 21 minutes and scoring 11 points. Following a spinal cord injury suffered by Marquis Daniels during a game against the Orlando Magic on February 6, 2011, Bradley was called up to the Boston Celtics' roster again, and joined the team for the game against the Charlotte Bobcats on February 7, 2011.
During the 2011–12 NBA season, he enjoyed much more playing time, and was promoted to a starting role following an injury to Ray Allen. Bradley's scoring output significantly increased during the season, including a career high 28 points against the Atlanta Hawks on April 20, 2012. He also received praise for his tremendous hustle and defense, including memorable blocks on Dwyane Wade and Russell Westbrook, among others. However, Bradley suffered a dislocated shoulder during the 2012 NBA Playoffs. This injury, which led to season-ending surgery, was a significant setback to the Celtics, who lost in seven games to the Miami Heat in the Conference Finals.
With Bradley still sidelined for the beginning of the 2012–13 NBA season, the aging Celtics struggled with the duo of Courtney Lee and Jason Terry receiving the majority of minutes at shooting guard. On January 2, 2013, Bradley returned back to action against the Memphis Grizzlies, regaining his spot as the starting shooting guard, and providing a significant boost to the team, evident by their winning six out of Bradley's first seven games back.  However, the season was ultimately a disappointment for both Bradley and the Celtics. Although he led the league in fewest points per play allowed on defense, at 0.697, he struggled offensively, shooting just 40.2% and managing 15 or more points just five times in 50 regular season games.  The Celtics lost any realistic chance of contention when point guard Rajon Rondo went down with a torn ACL in January,  leaving them without their most dynamic player. After falling behind three games to none against the New York Knicks in the first round of the playoffs, Boston mounted a furious comeback, winning two games and narrowly losing Game 6. Bradley, whose play in the series had mirrored the ineffectiveness of the team, provided an inspired effort at the end of the game, making all four of his shots and stealing the ball three times in the last ten minutes. The Celtics entered the offseason with an eye toward the future and Bradley a vital part of their plans to rebuild a contender.
