Reggie Evans Backtracks Trash Talk of LeBron James and the Miami Heat

by February 01, 2013

After his mouth got the Brooklyn Nets destroyed by the Miami Heat, Reggie Evans tried to back away from the comments he made about LeBron James and the defending champion Miami Heat. Nice try, Reg. Per the NY Post: “The Nets power forward, appearing on SiriusXM’s ‘Off The Dribble,’ said he didn’t knock the fact the Heat claimed last season’s title at the end of a lockout shortened season before Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Heat. ‘I didn’t say it didn’t prove anything,’ Evans said. ‘Those were not my exact words. I said they won a championship in a lockout season. That’s what I said. That was really about it. I never said they did not prove anything. I just said they won a championship in a lockout season. That was it. I guess people just took it out of proportion, that’s all.’ Evans also said, ‘One thing about me, when I’m going to talk about you, I’m going to pretty much say it to your face. I’m not going to go in the media and say it through the media. It was kind of hilarious to me, because I think it was just blown out of proportion.’ […] ‘You can’t just come out and say something like that to a champion,” James said. “No one knows what it takes unless you’ve done it. You can’t sit here and judge and talk about a team winning a championship unless you’ve done it. He hasn’t done it.'”
