(Original NBA Photo by Rocky Widner/Getty Images) Flipper, you CAN'T GUARD ME! Flipper is ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED by Tyreke Evans. Clearly, Flipper was out of his element and had no business guarding Evans. ...and yes, I know this is a horrible Photoshop--it includes Magic players. But that's what you get when you have to 'work'.
[Evans is] still overshadowed a bit by Jennings' scintillating start, but that performance looks to be a bit of an outlier based on unsustainable shooting numbers. Evans' play, in contrast, seems to be the real deal. He's a distant second in the hype war, but in this two-horse Rookie of the Year race, I have him ahead by a few lengths at the quarter pole.
