Unlike Martin, who voiced his displeasure and bitterness with the Clippers last week, Evans is fond of his time in L.A.
 
“It feels good to be back in this atmosphere. It always feels good to be back at Staples Center playing against my other team. It should be fun,” Evans said.
 
The aspect of playing for the Clippers that Evans misses most, besides the L.A. weather, is his teammates and the bond they had on and off the court. In particular, he said, his relationships with Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and Nick Young. He couldn’t have more of a contrasting opinion than Martin, the 13-year veteran now with the Knicks, who last week said: “I don’t care what they do, to be honest with you. I hope they lose every game.”
 
Upon hearing what Martin said, Evans gave a look of disbelief and laughed.
 
“Oh, wow! Oh, wow! (Laughs) I just hope they lose against us. To be honest with you, I still cheer for them. There was no bad blood. It was just an unfortunate  situation where they wanted to go a different direction. … I don’t hold any grudges or anything. My mama, we still be talking about them. My mom still be watching them (and saying), 'Look at my boys,' and stuff".  Evans said.

For the record, I am forever grateful to Reggie for his effect on Lopez in practices ever since he got here, getting a lot of the softness out of him. I am also grateful to him for his efforts in games where he understood what he is capable of doing and played within his ability. What happened to that Reggie is beyond me. Since mid-December, he has been a frequent disaster. PJ has donned him "emotional leader" of the team, and he is accountable for none of the awful decisions he makes.

 

Even when he isn't doing anything obviously stupid, just his being on the floor turns the game into a 4-on-5 (frequently 3-on-5 when Wallace is also on the floor, though some of that has to do with PJ's misuse of him), and teams can double off of him to ruin our spacing.

 

Chances are I would not dislike him as much if he played fifteen minutes a game on average. But the reality is that Humphries should be getting minutes over him, since he can rebound and not be a total black hole on offense. Also, Evans' getting minutes stands in the way of Mirza's development, and that seriously angers me.

 

And who could forget Reggie running his mouth before the Miami game to get LeBron and company fired up, before proceeding to contribute nothing to the game and dodging the media afterwards. That night summed up my dislike of him in a nutshell.

I've lost count how many times he turned it over because he tried to steal a rebound.... from his own teammate

 

3 seconds violations, stone hands, lane clogging that effects Brook's post game.... but at least he's a really good free throw shooter

^ Yeah, that's pure Reggie-ness.... I still miss him tho'. Even K-Mart wasn't getting that much crucial offensive boards.
