Last season Avery mentioned in an interview that he grew up supporting Seattle, so more than likely he has patterned his style of play after Gary Payton. Fingers crossed Avery comes back 100% healthy soon, I really miss watching him play.

A quote I never get tired of repeating is the one where he was asked on a local radio station last year about when he started to see himself as a defensive player.

He responded:  "I've been locking people down since the first grade."

I had previously used Jordan, Alvin Robertson and Gary Payton to describe Bradley
Avery is most similar to Jordan to me defensively. They have a very similar wiry frame and both take the same stance on defense. Did Michael lock down the whole game like Avery does?
in no way a comparison but jordan COULD lock down someone amazing, BUT he couldn't use all his energy on defense where bradley can do defense first and whatever offense comes is a plus
corner threes and thanks marquis for the back door cut lessons!
