The 2008-2009 NBA Rookie of the Year had a frustrating sophomore year due to injuries, but it appears the long summer vacation has Sacramento Kings’ Tyreke Evans back in top form.
Last night, the Kings opened their abbreviated pre-season schedule with a horrible loss to the exciting Golden State Warriors.
Tyreke scored 17 points while dishing 7 assists, pulling 4 rebounds, and picking off 2 steals. The game announcers agree that he’s one of the strongest, fastest, and best ball handling guards in the league and they cringe at how special he could become if he could shoot a jump shot consistently.
In true Tyreke fashion, he sliced to the basket with relative ease as most of his points came at the rim.
Unfortunately, the Kings will again be one of the worse teams in the league. They do have a few better players and they are a little older, but they’ll still lose a lot more games then they’ll win.
I still don’t understand why the Sixers didn’t draft DeMarcus Cousins last year. He’ll be another one biding his time in Sacramento waiting for his contract to expire, just like Tyreke.
