This is the final entry in the 30Q series.


"He carried that ball like Linus carried his blanket on Charlie Brown."

The story could be legend -- a young Tyreke Evans, surrounded by much older brothers, molded into a Basketball Machine. The right arm taped behind his back to develop the left. 1,500 jumpers a day. A modified version of Twister to develop his footwork. Every decision made by executive board, each move considered fully. The most pragmatic Ascendance the lig has ever seen.

"He carried that ball like Linus carried his blanket on Charlie Brown."

In the end, when the nets drop October 28, when Tyreke Evans begins his march toward stardom, it comes down to a dude with a basketball, four teammates, five opponents. When the ball goes up, Evans had no protection on the court, no deliberation between the lines.

It comes down to Tyreke, and whether he can construct out of his trained and bestowed tools something great.

It comes down to Tyreke, and whether he can implement his own vision.

It comes down to Tyreke, and whether he can dominate.

It comes down to Tyreke.
