    Captain: Dennis Rodman started out a string pole like Evans but bulked up over the years. They both had/have more quickness than the PFs you mentioned and they have pogo stick leaping ability, which the others don't. Also, Evans has played so much in the post in his life he is comfortable near the basket. Well, we will see what happens when Jeremy weighs 230 like Andrei and can finish like Andrei often can't at the rim. Not to slam Andrei, he's been my favorite Jazz player for many years (along with Deron a little more recently).

    The only problem with Evans playing PF is he is only 196. If he was to post up with Pau Gasol, Tim Duncan, Dirk, and even Kenyon Martin he would get destroyed. His natural position is SF he just needs to develop some ouside shooting. Big Al should be playing PF because he is simply not a good enough defender and rebounder to play center. Favors is a great defender who in my opinion could be a great center. I like Hayward at SG but he needs to develop his defense.

    Basketballogy: your way with Favors at C and AJ at PF would be good too...AJ says he likes PF more, anyway. Favors and AJ are both a little light to play center in my opinion, but Favors is apparently gifted enough to play either PF or C well. Hayward at SG is good too, he could actually play either SG or SF, whereas CJ is probably only suited for SG...one way to get both in lineup at times. Still see Evans playing PF and would love to see him much more next to Fesenko. Fesenko and him would gobble up most rebounds and Evans could put in Fesenko's put back misses.

    Jeremy Evans looks like such a great kid. I saw him play for the Flash last night, and Evans doesn't look like he belongs down there; he is so much more athletic than everyone else his size.

    The Flash have an energy player, Tony Gaffney, who really clicked with Evans. When they were on the floor together, when they got used to it, they were really something else.


    As for Evan's time with the Jazz, I like the idea of Evans at small forward, and frankly, Hayward at shooting guard, AJ at power forward and Favors at center. That puts AJ in the Jazz's primary scoring position, and Favors rebounding and defending, and gives the Jazz a very energetic, big line up.

    With Milsap, I like the Fesenko idea too.

    The NBA and NBADL need to change their rules for assigning players. In fact, both leagues are in sore need of better management period.

    About time team sent Jeremy down to the Flash to get some game action. Wondering though about them doing it for just 2 days, since they can only send him down twice in a year...right?
    Also, I am wondering about many of bloggers saying Jeremy belongs at SF because he is so lean. He is a low-post threat, excellent rebounder who is developing a good mid-range jumper. I seem him playing next to Fesenko, backing up Milsap playing next to Fesenko, with AJ and Favors starting. Jeremy is a PF like Dennis Rodman, just more of an all-around player than Dennis was.
