Originally written January 31, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans wanted LeBron James and the Heats attention last night and he got it.  Evans who was asked before the game against the Heat about LeBron, went on to say that the championship the Heat won meant nothing, because it came during a lockout.   Evans and the Nets then went on to get blown out by the Heat and James let it be known saying the Heat “did our number on him.” Evans is now backtracking on his statements, and according to ESPN New York, says his comments “were misinterpreted.” “Well, I didn’t say it didn’t prove anything. Those were not my exact words,” Evans said during an interview on SiriusXM radio’s “Off the Dribble” show. “I just said they won a championship in a lockout season. That’s what I said. So I never downplayed it or nothing, I just said they won a championship. That was really about it. I guess people  just took it out of proportion.” Evans then went on to say if he had something to say about Bron, he’d say it to his face.  ”One thing about me is like when I’m gonna talk about you, I’m pretty much gonna say it in your face. I’m not gonna go in the media and say it to the media. It was kind of hilarious to me because I think it was blown out of proportion because that’s not my DNA. I don’t throw jabs through Twitter or social media. I don’t do that type of work. It’s cool. I’m not dwelling over it. I just think it was taken way out of proportion and stuff like that.” Evan got LeBron’s attention and then reacted moistly to it, by not sticking around for questions after the blowout.  Say it with your chest Reggie.
