So, point being, if Avery wasn't the only one, and alleged headcases and nonheadcases alike struggle somewhat to adjust, maybe your criticism is a little unfair and you should be a little more understanding and just take his comments at face value.
I think it was Torts that came around to Dru, he finally put him on the PP and guess what, he produced like his old numbers, what a revelation !

Did I make anything up? He took half a season to understand the coach. A 30 yr old veteran who is not asked to produce points every night, do, ya know, what he does for a living.

Again, the guys very entertaining and believe in team, the problem is he doesnt like to march to everyone else's drum. He has to do it HIS way....but he only does that for the team !
