The Incredibly Unique Jeremy Evans

​ Here’s a player that’s unlikely to attract very much attention this summer: Jeremy Evans. After five seasons deep in the Utah Jazz bench unit—is there a role in the NBA further from the media spotlight?—Evans and his Dunk Contest title are hitting the free agent market.  This would be the first time that Evans has had to move since becoming a professional basketball...

Andrew Wiggins goes baseline for another powerful dunk against Jazz

Andrew Wiggins put on a dunkfest against the Utah Jazz, posterizing Rudy Gobert here and here. He put down a powerful third dunk with Jeremy Evans in the picture: Evans, being a former dunk champion, appreciated that, I’m sure. Too bad, the Wolves were smashed by the Jazz throughout the game, 104-84. *** Andrew Wiggins pic from Getty Images. Video from Basketball Highlights HD.

NBA All-Star Weekend: Can Zach LaVine Save the Dunk Contest?

Let’s be honest, the NBA Dunk Contest has been pretty sad over the last eight or nine years. Many years ago the event was once the highlight of the weekend, and now it’s the last thing that people want to see. In the 80′s, 90′s, and early 2000′s the superstars competed in the dunk contest. Lately it has been filled with unnoticeable names and players who barely even contribute...

How the Utah Jazz fared in NBARank

The #NBARank is a fun “one committee’s opinion” piece that starts a conversation. Sure, they’ll be wrong on some projections, overvaluing some and undervaluing others. They undervalued six or seven players on the Suns team last year, because who knew new coach Jeff Hornacek was going to lead almost all of them to career-best years? So now that’s I’ve got the emphasis...

Jeremy Evans posterizes kid with slam dunk in Instagram video

There are few things that I enjoy more than posterizing slam dunks and recently, Utah Jazz forward Jeremy Evans decided to lay down the poster on teenager. Evans was hanging out after the Jr. Jazz Camp and played a quick game of two-on-one with a couple of the campers who stayed after. Watch as Jeremy gets past the girl guarding him with a nasty crossover and elevate to throw down...

Watch: Jazz’ Jeremy Evans Posterizes Random Kid

For future reference, unless you’re a 7-foot tall athletic shot blocker, DO NOT try and block a Jeremy Evans dunk attempt. The Utah Jazz forward and former Slam Dunk Champion was playing around with two innocent kids in the gym, but the game got ugly when Evans baptized the post defender by dunking right on his head. This was an unfair matchup from the start, but Evans showed...

Utah Jazz: Highlights from the Season

As the door slowly closes on this frustrating Utah Jazz season, I had to sit and think to myself of what the silver lining could be. Some might argue that the best thing to take away from this season is the draft pick at the end of the day. Some might say they’ve been encouraged by “development.” Those things aside, let’s think about highlights – specific moments from this...

The Frustration of Being a Utah Jazz Fan

  The frustration comes from being a fan of a team that actually has integrity. At this point in the season and with only 10 games remaining it’s quite obvious that the playoffs are gone (that has been apparent for weeks) yet unlike Philadelphia who mailed in the season at the trade deadline the Jazz continue to fight and claw trying to win games. That’s why I love the jazz...
