Tyreke Evans Aims to Silence Critics
Tyreke Evans showed up at the Sacramento Kings’ practice gym at 4 a.m. one day last month to work on his shooting. Kings officials weren’t surprised. Evans has spent much of the offseason in the gym – part of his plan to regain the form he showed his first season in the NBA when he was named Rookie of the Year.
“I’ve been receiving a lot of criticism about not being healthy and not playing like I did my rookie year,” Evans said. “I just want to come back this year and show people I’m still here and that I haven’t lost a step.”
Evans knows he faces an uncertain future, and has devoted himself this summer to improving his game.
