Its not a surprise that Christensen has better numbers than Drury — he's played twice as many games
and has played with the teams supposed best offensive player.
But he has what 6.5 times as many points?
And again while I see what your trying to say about not looking to drury for offense,
to my point, this is not a team that is an offensive dynamo. We have plenty of guys who are fantastic defensive players. What we lack is consistent scoring. And while EC may be inconsistent, at least he has been consistent for stretches this year, where Drury hasn't even had a stretch of anything. So one more time, if we were a high flying offensive team and our TEAM defense was severely lacking, then I might be able to understand this mantra.
But this is not the case
and I don't know why people continue to pretend it is. Drury has no role with this teams current make up.
