Tyreke Evans Rolls an Ankle… or Two

Just days after Sammy Dalembert goes down with an adductor strain, the reigning ROY sprains his ankle… or was that both ankles? From the Sac Bee: “The latest King to limp off the court was their best player, Tyreke Evans. He turned his left ankle in the fourth quarter and limped off with 7:09 left in the game. [...] Evans watched the rest of the game with ice wrapped around his ankle. Evans left Thomas & Mack with two gimpy ankles. ‘I turned this one on a fast break on (Lakers guard) Steve Blake, and I twisted it,’ Evans said, pointing to his right ankle. ‘On the next one, I came down on (Lakers center) Theo Ratliff and twisted it. The left one hurts more.’”

    Is it me or is each generation of baller getting softer? I don’t remember all these injuries in the 80′s – 90′s. The worst you heard about was someone having back spasms or something was actually broken. Is it the shoes?

    @1:47 comment(I refuse to call another man PapaBear lol): Twisted ankles are no joke, regardless of the generation. But I think with the type of media coverage we have in this generation it’s easier to know everything about professional ball players
