Maurice Evans: Bad Boy?

Travis just wrote me an email that reminded me of something.  Texas wrote: "The poll about Gibson-Tucker was intended as a tongue-in-cheek question, which apparently only 2/3 of our readers understood. Of course Gibson is the PG, but Tucker thinks he is. That
guy kills me. Reminds me of Maurice Evans."

Ah, Maurice Evans. Remember that guy? The infinitely talented and athletic underachiever? Well, he's finally put all his talents together and has found a home in the NBA. I didn't even realize he'd made it in the NBA until I visited Detroit over Thanksgiving and my girlfriend's father, a Pistons season ticket holder, kept calling for "Evans to get in the game." I had no idea who he was talking about until Maurice checked in.

I quickly realized it was THE Maurice Evans and I told my girlfriend's father all about his mediocre Texas career. He told me that Evans is a huge spark off the bench for the Pistons and has really made a solid contribution. To say I'm shocked is an understatement.

Hey, it's better late than never.  Good luck Maurice.
