In response to R9R's comment:
Avery will get better. His shot struggles because he's use to being wide open the last few years and now he's a focus on the offense, while still being our defensive leader.
I bet you its night & day when Rondo returns. Avery's percentages will go way up
He's a nice young man with one NBA skill, full-court ball pressure.
Other than that he's more a liability, and that makes his one talent an expensive luxury.
There's no hope that he will ever make the right move at the right time with the right timing and the right technique. It's just not there. Why management has persisted in this PG training is beyond me.
You saw it tonight - 4/14 with some backbreaking misses. Horrible floor game - some of the stupidest, most ill-conceived and executed passes you will see made all year, and that includes the NCAA and maybe even your local gym. Even his assist to Green for the dunk was late, slow, and nearly uncatchable. And when the team absolutely needed a PG on the floor, he was on the bench.
And as a defender he was eaten up by the rookie Wolters - 14 pts, 50% shooting, 6 assists, and 1 TO - while posting 8 points on 14 shots (29.5%), no FTAs, 2 assists, and 4TOs.
And not being extended will erode his confidence even more. I feel bad for the guy, but, very simply, he does not have the basketball sense to run a team.
