Tyreke Evans? Really?

I just don't understand how he's playing lights out... I read a lot of comments about how him and Jennings are the studs in this draft... I just don't see it... Can anyone convince me that he's beasting right now?

WHat?

he had four straight 20pts+ games, shot with nice % , Kings winning, and looks like he is triple double waiting to happen..still big contender for R.O.Y

Well with Martin out he has

Well with Martin out he has averaged 22pg over his last 5 games and the Kings have won 4 straight of which i feel he has been the catalyst for. He has been very consistent in his game.

In that 5 game span he has also averaged 5rpg and 5apg something only Iguodala, Roy, D-Will and James has done.

Pretty good company right?

how about watch his games..

how about watch his games.. he usually has around 15 plus at halftime every game and comes back in the fourth and closes the game off
he and westphal are the main reasons that the so called worst team in the league has a winning record

He's doing all of this

He's doing all of this without the star player Kevin Martin.

which make it even better since the defenses can focus on him and not have to worry about martin

lalaila

shooting 38% is not a good percentage over that span #1 (which was only 4 games BTW)... 2- he's taking alot of shots and getting to the line with his play... I just feel like those are things that will happen for any player with that kind of freedom... IDK if I would say he's doing great (more like decent)... Or going to do well in this league... I'm just really suspect on him...

dude, suspect? If he wasn't

dude, suspect? If he wasn't doing well why are you the only one who disagrees? everyone is just baffled because Jennings just scored 55. the truth is they're both great players and the ROY race is absolutely (for now) exclusively between the two of them. and honestly who did jennings score 55 against? the Warriors? come on. Tyreke put up 32 and 7 against the jazz AKA Deron Williams. While i have much respect for jennings as that's just damn impressive, it's much easier to score on the warriors than basically any other team in the league.

tyreke evans had like 20 at

tyreke evans had like 20 at half against them and didnt really play the rest of the game cuz the kings were up by like 13!!!! he would of had like 40! lol< sarcasm
(what if kobe played the 4th quarter against the raptors that one year) its only jennings fault he didint score in the first half cuz he played.. its different if he sat it out

it doesnt matter who he got

it doesnt matter who he got 55 against hes still playing against nba players..and that game evans also gave up 29..right now it isnt really a race jennings is wayy ahead of everyone else with evans being second. if 55 was so easy then jennings wouldnt have been the first player to do it this season..how many have score 55 or more against the warriors in the past coulple of year anyway

at this point the only way

at this point the only way Tyreke gets ROY is if they make the 8th seed. btw udoka played deron in the 4th were Deron got his numbers
Anyway look at ur argument ur judging a rookie on his first few games.. of his career

and it makes no sense to say

and it makes no sense to say if someone woul dhave played more they would have had more sinceno one knows if the player would have stayed hot or even took the same amount of shots that they took earlier..i put that up there with people who try to make a player seem better because of there 48min average

look at the team stats for

look at the team stats for last nights game. sure he had 55, but the most anyone else could muster was 19. jennings only had 5 assists. the only issue i have with jennings game is that so far he hasn't shown what he was drafted for, which was to be an incredible passing point guard. to me, so far he's just looked selfish. i know he has the ability, and i'm completely in agreement that at this point he's hands down in the lead.

ya understood, i'm just

ya understood, i'm just saying the warriors hardly have a respectable defense and if there was any team to score 55 on, they'd have to be pretty high on my list.

the funny thing is the game

the funny thing is the game was still close. no one's trying to downplay it's just ive heard enough of it.. how many people have said they've always like brandon and jumped on his bandwagon and think theyve proved it by writing posts on it

That 32 and 7 stat...

He also shot damn near 40 shots that game... For a rookie that's alot... I'm just saying someone with the ball in their hands that much and shooting 30+ shots a game BETTER be averaging 16 PPG... That's why I'm saying I'm suspect on him... He's not shooting a DECENT percentage either... I just feel like if his shot attempts were down to reasonable numbers, he wouldn't be a factor... Some people just see the ending numbers and that's it... BJ shot 61% yesterday BTW...
