Miami Heat rumors have Reggie Evans dissing LeBron James and the championship that the Heat won during a lockout season. According to a report on Wednesday (Jan. 30), Evans is unimpressed with what the Heat did last season. He also seems unaware of the 16-game winning streak that James has going against the Nets' franchise.
When talking about the title, Evans stated that, "It doesn't prove nothing. That was a lockout season." He would later elaborate by stating, "Our team is defending the Miami Heat. If our team has to defend one person, LeBron isn't going to score nothing. LeBron is no different from Joe Johnson or Andray Blatche. No different."
Those are pretty bold statements coming from a role player who isn't counted on to do much more than rebounding for the Brooklyn Nets. In fact, many people reacting to the comments online weren't even sure who Evans even is. That might speak volumes about the validity of his comments and he might have just created the perfect bulletin board material to give the Heat some added momentum.
The Heat and Nets face off in a very intriguing game Wednesday night on ESPN. It's the perfect chance for Evans to show that he can stop James from driving to the basket with authority. At the same time, it might be safe to assume that James is going to come out with even more energy. If he actually even cares about the comments.
These Miami Heat rumors may be forgotten in a few days, especially if Brooklyn has a hard time defending the home court. Reggie Evans comments about LeBron James and the second championship banner in Miami won't mean anything if he cannot back them up.
