No. 22 Tyreke Evans
Say hello to the ‘09-10 Rookie of the Year who, in this writer’s eyes, should’ve been playing in Istanbul this summer.
To throw the numbers out there, we’re looking at a point guard who is 6-6, 220 pounds with nearly a 7-0 wingspan. He’s got the size and strength to both play and defend the 1, 2 and 3 if needed with no problem. While he doesn’t have the bounce, it could be argued that he is the LeBron James of point guards in terms of his physical stature.
Last year, Reke did most of his damage one on one. In fact, over a third of his buckets (33.6 percent) came off of isolation situations where he put in work. His high school team would always run a 1-4 flat to let him do his thing and the dribble drive system at Memphis catered his skill set as well. It could be said that he’s a bit ball dominant at times but when you have a player who can create his own shot like that, you don’t have a choice but to let him do that.
