Avery has always drawn attention on the court. Between his flashy playstyle and flashy personality, it's hard to not notice him. The lion dazzled during high school with his high-flying playstyle. Sure, he had a bad habit of fouling opponents, but in his own words, he made up for it every time. It's hard to argue - he was far away the best player in his city's high school circuit, and carried his team deep into the provincial championships on many occasions.
The lion grew up in Ottawa, Ontario. Avery was the youngest member of a large family, which led to him always overcompensating to stand out. Basketball quickly became his favourite way to do this - he was able to blend raw athleticism with flashy tricks to impress all of his older siblings.
Once his mane started growing in earnest, he took full advantage of it - styling and colouring it on the monthly. After a few months of this during his senior year of high school, his hair salon of choice, She Said Bangs, asked him to act as a model for photo shoots. He even had the chance to attend a hair stylists' conference in Cleveland as a demonstration model for She Said Bangs. There he met many others into style and fashion, and even got to show off his basketball skills for the other stylists and models.
Avery was accepted into his hometown school, the University of Eastern Ontario for the 2021 school year. He attended one month of summer practice sessions with the team, and was generally annoyed by both the rigidity of the UEO Colonels' practice schedule and the idea of having to attend classes on top of it come september. In his mind, he was bound for professional basketball anyways, and he didn't see any reason to spend years slaving away in classes when he could just go right to the FBA and start getting more intense training. He promptly dropped out before the school year even started, submitted his name for the 2021 draft, and hasn't looked back since.
