Tyreke's brother blames Calipari
For his jumpshot. He said he took all the confidence away from him.
Forget all that ..he has the summer to work on his jump shot..wade ,lebron and now rose have became better shooters since they've been in the league..
he should be thankng coach cal for making him a better all around player and top notch pro..evans draft stock went up when cal moved him to point guard...
cal tweeked with cousins game..he put cousins into the post where he dominated as a freshman..
in high school cousins hung out on the perimeter trying to be another magic johnson..and thats not his game......
I didn't know Reggie was his brother. He probably had such a good jumper growing up is because he was afraid to drive agains or bang down low with his brother playing in the drive way. After seeing what Reggie did to Kaman, i'd be shooting 15 footers all day.
I used to think it was that Reggie Evans as well, but it is a different Reggie Evans.
If he starts hitting shots and with that front court Kings will be scary
Lolz @ Team Tyreke using high school footage as motivation. Everybody can shoot when they have the greenlight.
Anyway, excuses excuses. Kobe couldn't shoot in his rookie season either. Guess what he did...he practiced harder.
To be fair, there does seem to be a consistent lack of a jump shot in Calipari PGs. Wall, Rose, Evans... I'm sure they'll get recover when people wise up to their driving game, but the point remains.
^ Disagree with that post. Think about it. What are the strengths of Rose, Evans and Wall? Driving into the paint and using their speed and athleticism to score and make plays. Those guys were such superior athletes all through high school that they never were really forced to work much on their jump shot. Their physical abilities allowed them to get by. Now that they are at the NBA level, things don't come as easily and you will see them have to continue to develop their jump shot.
Thats what I was saying dude? That right now they are surprising people with their driving skills but once defences start adjusting they'll develop their jumper.
Doesn't change the fact that Calipari PGs have a poor J coming into the L.
Lol. Just about every college coach PGs jumpers need work when they come in the NBA. Hell ust about every player
