Tyreke Evans’ ascent from a top high school prospect to SLAM Diary Keeper to go-to-guy on the Memphis Tigers, one of the nations top teams, is sure to be only the beginning. When he’s a big-time star in the NBA, just remember where you saw it first. — Adam Fleischer

    i think everybody knows my opinion on ol’ Evans, glad he’s doing well @ Memphis.

    Get this kid to the L already. And technically i “saw it first” on the cover of Dime, but i probably just wanst looking close enough.

    that was a HUGE risk having Reke on the cover that early

    Yeah Reke.

    Everyone talks about how Memphis doesn’t play anyone, but yet they made it to the championship last year, and are 26-3 this year.

    dennis they had derrick rose CDR, joey dorsey…thats 3 NBA players. sorry buddy, this is a different team

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBQEmmgDl9I Boing Dynasty

    Does CDR actually play?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Justin Walsh

    no, but he was the best scorer on that Memphis team. He was also more consistent than Derrick in college. This team is different. And frankly I don’t get excited when I see him drop 20 something on teams like Marist.

    i see slam mag has removed pick n roll.i really liked tht but i see tht there making way for articls on young players,much like articles they had with REKE.hell if it pays off its a risk they took well

  • justin
