Touche... But that's why he goes to the rim. He attempts 59% of his shots < 3 feet.
He is also shooting his 2nd highest 3 pt % in his career. That's why 17% of his shot are coming from there.

[quote]Evans is shooting like sub 30% on every shot except for layup and dunks. He should not be anywhere close to a position that has "shooting" in it's name [/quote]
Evans isn't even shooting sub 30% on 3s this season much less all jump shots....

[quote] the offense still runs through him when he's on the floor. Is that what we really want out of a guy we go out and acquire?[/quote]
He co-existed pretty well on a team that included Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. I'd say those two are far more "offensive centric" than anyone on the Pe...

Honestly, I think it is because LSU uses smaller linebackers that do specific things. It seems like LSU got a jump on most of the SEC defenses by foreseeing the fast paced spread out offense. They mostly recruit guys to play LB that are 200-215ish coming out of high school which is pretty much the s...

With Curry, Harden, Gasol, Lowry, and even Davis.

Add the former MVPs LeBron and Durant.
I may even be missing some guys.
I think Curry is the MVP right now, but there is a lot of season le...

To me it kinda depends on if West and/or CP3 win a Championship somewhere else. Otherwise... No one.

Cutting Colston saves about $12 Mil over the next 2 seasons, but still involves a $5.4 cap hit in 2015. He's gone unless he really takes a pay cut.
Hawthorne would save $7 Mill over the next 2 years but would involve a $3 Million cap hit in...

Depends on where they pick and what they do in free agency of course.
I'd really like to see what they do with the interior line. There is no way they can pay their guards $20.6 Mil and not address the center position. As we all know the Saints are in "win now" mode with the limited time Brees h...
