Those are all blatant negatives. What are his positives, other than some of the fans get a kick out of his antics?
I went overboard in my original post because I regard him as a gigantic negative. Apologies for that. Now instead of insulting a poster, why not post his positives.
Because I've posted what I view as his positives about a billion times in the 547546845 Avery threads we have each season. It's not an argument worth rehashing, IMO.
Again...I don't dispute your "central point." I agree with it, in fact. I'm not trying to argue with you about his value, or change your opinion of him as a player. The ONLY reason I said anything at all was because of the factual inaccuracies in your first post. If that was hyperbole that I didn't pick up on, and I offended you with the "look ignorant" bit, I apologize.
I don't go looking for Avery arguments, since I know how polarizing he is. It's like talking politics. So, again, sorry. I'm done now.
It's just pain.
