Tyreke Evans, Late Dunk Of The Year Candidate

7 Apr

What do you get when you mix running full speed, no contact on the way to the basket, a healed ankle and a smaller defender making one of the worst decisions in his career? You get Tyreke Evans postering Gary Neal making him look like, well, a poster. Ya like a poster works.

This dunk was nasty. Once again Gary Neal has exercised poor judgement on which plays to take a charge and which ones to pretend he lost his man in transition.

Usually you don’t see dunk of the year candidates this late in the season, but Tyreke made a strong case last night against Blake Griffins Mozgov poster and JR Smiths ride em’ cowboy dunk on guess who, Gary Neal. Gary is a good shooter and excellent role player, but he has to remember this isn’t Europe and everything is on tape. And you don’t want more tape of stuff like that or like this on Youtube.

J.R Smith, just can’t get enough (of himself)

NBA ballers are young, rich and got the money to spend. The league is full of these young Scrooge McDucks. With that said, what better way to let loose from the NBA grind and play some NBA 2k11. Wait what? Players have all the money in the world they would never play a basketball video game. Well that’s unless you’re JR Smith.

JR Smith – Hope I can get some love on @2KSports one of these dayz! Hate having to edit my self! #Gamer! – Via Twitter

At first glance at this tweet it’s funny to visualize the redundancy of a player spending his down time in the cyberspace of his own job. That’s like me playing a game of eating donuts beside my bed and lying to my brother so I can avoid picking him up from school and strand him in a bad neighborhood.

At second glance however it is much more comical to envision JR in his living room being raging at his rating in a video game. He even takes it a step further and goes into the game to change his characters stats so he can play as himself and drop 50 points, he’s probably also set up the game to make him a starter at all star weekend. I don’t blame him actually he probably just wanted to remember what it was like to be a starter again. That’s like me going into my donut eating game replacing them with ribs and then making myself an only child.
