Was your approach any different with Drummond because his free throw issues were so public and obvious to people — whereas other guys may be working on improvements that are more subtle? Idan Ravin: There were so many more things. That wasn’t something we even had a conversation about. It was, ‘you’re going to lose 30 pounds. We’re going to get better. We’re going to become more serious. We’re going to get more focused.’
Idan Ravin on Andre Drummond: And I’ve said this before: what I saw him do this summer, and what he did with me, he’s at 15 percent capacity what he’s doing with his team. He could be absolutely extraordinary. Extraordinary. But it’s hard to believe that when you see 6-11 and 285 pounds. You see that in a certain way. But what I saw this summer…magical.
Bleacher Report: There’s been a lot of talk lately of the one-and-done rule being altered. You were one of the first to jump from high school. Do you see the eligibility rules being changed again? Kevin Garnett: No, I don’t see the rule changing. And if I do see the rule changing, the rule is going to be changed not for the betterment of college [players]. I think they would try to get the kids to stay a little longer. I think kids leaving early out of high school hurts the college game. You can do it in tennis; you can do it any other sport, leave early, but basketball [is] the most impactful game, the most recognizable game—so I understand the control or the ability to try and control it. Players are going to find ways to get through it, loop[hole] it.
