Dudley Leroy Bradley (born March 19, 1957) is a retired American professional basketball player who played in the NBA.

Bradley played collegiately at the University of North Carolina and was selected 13th overall in the 1979 NBA draft by the Indiana Pacers. He played nine NBA seasons for 7 different teams and left the league after the 1988-89 NBA season with averages of 5.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game.

In two separate games in November 1980, as a member of the Pacers, Bradley recorded a notable 9 steals.[1] The season before (1979-80) he set an NBA rookie record for steals in a season with 211 (2.57 per game).[2]

As a college player, Bradley made one of the most memorable plays in University of North Carolina history on Jan. 17, 1979. With the game clock under 10 seconds and the Tar Heels trailing by one point in a road game against rival N.C. State, Bradley stole the ball from Wolfpack guard Clyde Austin and dribbled for an uncontested dunk that gave UNC a 70-69 win. His prowess at forcing turnovers and defending opposing players in college earned Bradley the nickname "The Secretary of Defense."

After his NBA career, Bradley played a season or two in the World Basketball League. He played in that league for the Saskatchewan Storm in 1990-91.[3] He also worked as a coach in the Continental Basketball Association and the World Basketball League.[4] In 1994, he was named head coach of the Brevard College Tornados men's basketball team, a position he held until 1999.[5]

In September 2003, Bradley became a Maryland Transportation Authority police officer.[5]
