|Reggie Evans: "LeBron Is No Different To Joe Johnson Or Andray Blatche"|
This should make tonight's Brooklyn v Miami game at Barclays a little more interesting. Nets forward Reggie Evans today told media he was unimpressed with Miami's title win last season because it came in a lockout year, and then went on to say that LeBron James was no different a player to teammates Joe Johnson and Andray Blatche when it came to how the Nets would defend the reigning MVP.
"It doesn't prove nothing. That was a lockout season," Evans told the New York Daily News on Wednesday when asked if beating the defending champs would prove something to the rest of the NBA.
"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," Evans told the Daily News. "People need help (on defense). Some people don't need help. Everybody has to be double-teamed, it doesn't matter who you are. You just have to stop LeBron in transition.
"He's quick in transition. If you look at Joe Johnson -- Joe Johnson has two or three people trying to stop him. Whoever is guarding him."
For the record, Brooklyn coach P.J. Carlisemo does not agree with Evans, he says that LeBron is "unguardable."
