Dudley Leroy Bradley (born March 19, 1957, in Baltimore, Maryland) is a retired American professional basketball player 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 seasons for 7 different teams and retired 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."

Since retiring, Bradley has been in the law enforcement industry, becoming a Maryland Transportation Authority police officer.[3]
