Reggie Evans: Bargnani Is ‘My All-Star’

Reggie Evans had a nice talk with The Score’s Holly MacKenzie about a slew of topics Here are some highlights of what the burly big had to say about Andrea Bargnani:

On the criticism Bargnani receives and whether it’s going to take some time before he gets used to being that franchise player and how he talks to him and reminds him of his talent:

Reggie Evans: “That’s all part of life. That’s all a part of the media being critical or not being critical. One thing you have to understand, media has a job to do. They’ve got to stay, the media’s got to stay hot. They’ve gotta bring a hot topic because if they don’t, they’ve got somebody to replace them. The media’s only doing their job that they’re supposed to do. The only thing he can do is use that at media. To me personally, ‘You’re an All-Star, dawg,’ that’s just what it is. Me personally, I can care less what media say or fans say, I know what I see every day in practice, in the locker room, on the bus, just whatever. I know what I see and I know what he brings to the table. Personally, he’s my franchise player. I’m happy to say it. He’s my All-Star player. I want him to make the All-Star. I need him to make the All-Star. That way I can sit back and watch a Raptor. That feels good. Every year I pretty much had an All-Star on my team, every single year but Philadelphia. I came back here and had Chris. It feels good and why not have the enjoyment of somebody representing your team and be like, hey, even thought he made the All-Star, to know, ,’Hey, I had some input on that,’ No matter if I made a pass, or he passed me the ball, we did a defensive assignment. We helped. We helped out for that individual to get into the All-Star, so it’d be feeling good.”

    Meh. I’d vote for Kleiza instead. Dude gets it done.

  • TeBron

    I’d vote for Evans over Bargnani…

  • Flight

    Sounds like Evans has a little man crush on Bargs.

    But more importantly big ups to the SCORE canada. Only sports channel up here that doesn’t play hockey highlights 95% percent of the freaking time.

    Is he sure his ‘all star’ isnt grant hill? Or kaman? ….. … Btw, its ‘i couldnt care less’, not ‘i could care less’. Just the george carlin in me.

    do not raise your hand if you are going to be watching Raps games this year, its slightly embarrassing.

    class….consumate teammate….unfortuantely that team sucks…

  • andreanglais

    Classy individual…Regie Evans? Funny guy, yes. consumate (sic) competitor? sure. But classy? Thats not what Kaman said…

  • Ghost

    Hey Flight, those hockey networks are the only networks carrying Raptor games…not the score. Give credit where it’s due.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Hey look I’m Tarzan Cooper!!!

  • Adam Sandler

    and me is Adam Sandler!!! LOL

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @andreanglais…..hahahahahahahha wow i forgot about that one….that was certaintly a PAUSE


    Don’t pick on Bargnani or Reggie will grab your nutsac.

  • Fat Lever

    The passing shot on the sixers is hilarious, even to me a sixer fan. And the best ever handle for a fantasy sports league I’ve seen relates to Kaman. The dudes name was Chris Kaman Your Eye. That still kills me.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    LOL at Tarzan and Adam.

  • doyouwantmore

    How long was Dirk in the league before people started noticing that he could play? That’s an honest question and I don’t feel like looking it up.

  • http://Www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Wrong! Kleiza will be an allstar before Andrea imo. Anyone who followed Kleiza’s stint in Greece and the Euroleague will notice the killer instinct and boost in confidence he got from that outing. Even added a deadly lowpost jumphook to his arsenal. In a league full of übertalented players, that increased confidence can be pivotal for a guy like Kleiza who is already very skilled on offense.

    I live in Canada and i am a semi fan of the raptors(cause who is a real fan anyways) and I said that Andrea was a bust the first two years but the last two he has busted out and without ball hog CB4 Andrea will easily be a 20point scorer and I can see him being an allstar. The stuff about being a franchise player though, no way they will probablly get a good top 5 pick next year

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    710 wasnt me. and hey! now some random dude has my email, awesome! love this site. and yes kleiza will be a beast this season. always thought he brought more than jr smith.

    tarzan cooper – expect beautiful p0 rn in the email box soon??…. : /


    BTW . . . +1 to everyone giving LK props. He’s gonna be the closer for that team. Take it to Vegas.

  • Oli

    @doyouwantmore: dirk averaged around 17 ppg in his second season and made his first all-star team in 2002. had he played in the east, he would definitely have been an all-star in 2001 (east bigs that year: antonio davis, anthony mason and of course mount mutombo. theo ratliff and zo were injured)

    Reggie Evans – vote for Bargs or I’ll grab your balls.

  • mister8

    @Oli…just watched that all-star game last week, for the I.A and Starburry tagteam (fun watch), was a bit surprised that davis and mason were all-stars, kinda forgot.

    Nice gesture by Reggie… but Bargs needs some testosterone and swagger before he’ll ever get going that strong.
