Tyreke Evans: fantastic basketball player, deserving Rookie of the Year, hope of the Sacramento Kings … offseason media trap.
First, Evans pulled a classic “I’m-too-young-to-handle-this-much-money-and-fame” move with his speeding fiasco, when he was caught on video weaving through traffic at speeds as high as 130 miles per hour. Evans’ explanation after the fact? He said he didn’t think he was driving that fast. That strains the bounds of plausability.
Now, Evans has been caught on video again. Granted, this is far less serious and the inability to swing a golf club without looking idiotic isn’t required of truly excellent basketball players (see Barkley, Charles). But, still, I challenge you to watch this video and not laugh out loud. Evans makes Barkley’s swing look majestic.
