2013: Formidable Kings! Tyreke must stay!



Tyreke Evans is a rare and incredible talent still working on finding his complete NBA game at the age of 22.It's very tough to develop in the NBA, especially when playing on a losing team. That' so tough on the confidence. After winning Rookie of the Year he has had an injury riddled season, two coaches, a continually shifting roster, and a position change. That's a foundation for a young player? Aside from his incredible talent and versatility, Tyreke is a humble and hardworking person, and a we before me teammate. Changing a lifetime position in the midst of a season is no small challenge. However, as Coach Carrill pointed out, Tyreke can learn many things to improve his overall game during this tenure as a small forward. However, he creates incredible match up problems for the opposition when he is at the point guard position. In addition, he gives the Kings a defensive possibility enjoyed by very few teams, one being the Chicago Bulls of Jordan's era. That team five players between 6'6'' tall and 6' 10" tall who could switch virtually all pick and rolls. Finally, the 1-2-2 is not the only possible offensive alignment. At times a 2-1-2 set would allow Cousins to roam high/low post and have two guards(Tyreke, IT) who could advance/attack.
Mr. Petrie has worked with a pathetic budget and other known constraints and created a new team with enormous potential. Evans,Thompson, Cousins, Thornton, Thomas, Fredette, Hayes, and now Williams provide an enthusiastic, cohesive, and learning foundation. Whiteside, Honeycutt have potential as well. Given another high draft pick, and an actual off season and preseason to work together, this team---with Tyreke...will be formidable.
