Tyreke Evans is quickly approaching the “too good for this channel” threshold. I may be dissing Marc Gasol here, but Evans is probably the best player on the Grizzlies right now, and his scoring average is only going up. It was easy to justify making a highlights of a former ROTY winner when he was averaging 10 points per game. 20 is a lot tougher.
So if he drops 40 next game and I don’t make highlights, don’t be surprised. It will be because I will have decided to retire him once again from active entry in my highlights archivium.
Not yet, though. There’s still time for his three-point shooting to regress and with it, his averages. I’m not sold that that fling he has will keep working for the whole season, but we’re already almost halfway through the damn thing already so I guess I don’t know what I’m talking about.
