Kings rookie guard Tyreke Evans was, as they say, all that. More impressive than he was during the preseason, which was impressive indeed. His numbers were great -- 17, 7, 3, 2 steals, 1 block, 1 turnovers in 32 minutes. His demeanor and cool even better. He passes to space fearlessly and intelligently; he sees passes and angles his teammates don't yet see. He plays hard. He rises to challenges. He is tough. He is level-headed. His touch at the rim is next level. Body control out of this world. There was an unmistakable feeling to tonight's game that within say, two years, the buzz before the Kings come to town will rival just about any other team in the league, simply because of Evans' presence. Rolling your eyes at this praise? Go check out Nate McMillan's comments below. He compared Evans to Magic Johnson. And was dead serious.
