Andrei Kirilenko as a rookie was WAY WAY WAY better than Evans. He got 26
minutes a night and scored 10 points a game. You are foolish for comparing the
two. The only thing they have in common is they are both 6'9, really skinny and
very athletic. Thats about it.Attitude, energy, athleticism... lots
of guys have those. Do the names Andre Owens and Roger Powell ring a bell?
(Look them up if they don't) Evans is probably a little bit better than them,
but I don't expect much more.
I like Evans and his attitude, he makes the players excited on the floor and
bench when in. He gives tremendous athleticism and energy. I was not sure when
O Connor drafted him, but I am willing to accept Kevin did good in the draft. I
feel it is a no brainer that he gets the contract. We lost Matthews already and
that has proven costly and hate to think the same could happen to Jeremy
SUPER FLY EVANS!! I know he can fly, but we have not had a chance to see his
outside jumper much, can he shoot? I like Evans and hard work always pays off.
Looking forward to his bright future. I dont think Evans will ever be a dominant
4 or 5 in the league, but I think he can be a very good 3. When AK came into the
league he could not shoot well, but he was a jumper and a slasher, passed the
ball well, defended and rebounded well. I think if Evans can do that he will
have a long NBA career. If Evans can develope an outside jump shot, than he
could be a diamond in the rough! Another second round special!
Is Sloan getting soft in his old age? I can't remember the Jazz talking about
rookies like this. Forget sending Evans to the D-League for more
mintes, how about you send him to Chuck O' Rama for a few weeks? The way he was
getting pushed around last night wasn't fun to watch :( But we all really like
this kid and apparently he's working his tail off
