For those that don’t watch a good amount of basketball, Evans is a solid player.
Sounds like it was for some pretty hard stuff. Hopefully he can clean-up.
2 years is steep. Why not treat it like drug court and try to help the guy get his s*** together.
Maybe the have and someone can set the record straight
Dude obviously has some stuff going on, hope he gets it straightened out.
Agree that it seems steep, but it’s collectively bargained, so the players had some say in that. Worth noting that 1) cocaine cause a LOT of problems for the NBA in the 80’s, and 2) no suspensions for pot until the THIRD failed test, which costs 5 games.
Is this the same thing that happened to OJ Mayo
Yep. Birdman as well.
He likes the booger sugar
Amazing how a guy can function as a high level NBA player while on all that.
Seems like an expensive mistake.
Ever seen the 30 for 30 about Chris Herren?
The Cowboys were winning Super Bowls so it can be done.
Stay off the weeeeeeeee...oh. He’s on the hard stuff. Yikes.
dude was standing on a street corner in the rain in his NBA warm up, 30 minutes before tip, waiting for his dealer to arrive. That is a whole new level of problem. Not saying Tyreke doesn't have some issues he needs to straighten out, but Herren's story is just wild.
Definitely different situations. Herren only lasted a couple years in the NBA and didn't do much while there but went on to play another 5 years overseas while still on heroin. Tyreke has been way more successful but most likely isn't a full on heroin junkie. I just had to mention Chris Herren because his story is something everybody should hear. Inspiring to see somebody get to such a low point in their life, manage to pull out of it, and go on to use their story to help others. A lot of people don't survive living the kind of life he was living let alone get themselves together enough to start a foundation that saves lives.
totally agree. I was meaning to agree with you, everyone should hear that Herren story if they haven't. It is very powerful in a lot of ways
LSD does not belong on that list.
He hid it pretty well. He wasn't great with the Pacers by any means last season. But he was generally OK; pretty inconsistent but there are plenty of players around the league who fit that description.
I do wonder if word was out about him around the league and that's why there was limited interest in him at the trade deadline in 17-18 when he was playing really well for a bad Memphis team and then limited interest in him again in free agency last summer when Indy got him on the relative cheap.
I think I heard Birdman was playing while on heroin. That's impressive.
Or heard anything about he Villanova team that beat Georgetown for the title in the 90s?
