convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

Default Grange: The Evans Factor

Ah well, at least Bosh is happy with the move.

Chris Bosh says he won’t be signing a contract extension this summer with the Toronto Raptors, but he has one more reason to stay with the club that drafted him in 2003 now that it has added Reggie Evans in a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers. If Bosh is traded in the off-season or signs elsewhere as a free agent next year, it means he’ll have to play against the rugged defender again.

“I hate playing against that guy, to be honest with you,” Bosh said of Evans, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound bruiser who has a knack for getting under opponents’ skin. The Raptors acquired him last week for guard/forward Jason Kapono. “I’m glad he’s on my team. He’s very strong, a smart player and very physical and he’s dirty – or he can be – and, honestly, that’s what you need to be a good team, you need guy like that.”

Bosh was sad to see Kapono go – “He’s a great teammate and a I had a great time with him” – but recognizes that the rebounding and toughness Evans brings is something the Raptors were missing.

“He’s on the boards all the time,” Bosh said. “He can score, but he’s not looking to score every time, he seems to be a good team player and go in there do his job. You need that. ”

a bit unclassy to straight-up call him a dirty player, but i assume that's not exactly how he meant it... probably could have said 'scrappy' or just left it at 'physical'. maybe i'm yoo picky... at least he seems happy with the move.

Bosh and Bargnani are not of your toughest front court duos in the NBA. I hope Reggie Evans plays dirty and pushes them in around in practice. Maybe, Just Maybe, Bosh and Bargnani push back?

"but hes not looking to score every time, he seems to be a good team player and go in there do his job. You need that.

That what we need, players who know their roles, and follow their roles in games. Just frustating to see Hump being Hump and Kapono trying to dribble.

I like that idea.
Probably the reason why Bosh is bulking up this summer.

When you purposefully grab another guy's balls during a game... you're dirty.. there are no two ways about it.

A few years ago in the playoffs against the Clips - he grabbed Kaman's nuts from behind, and squeezed. He didn't even get a whistle for that. I don't think he got fined afterwards either. But - yeah - he's dirty. I don't think he would mind anyone saying it straight up.

When evans played for the Nuggets he filled the role that the Birdman is filling this year, very few points but owned the boards and kinda was a prickly dude.

Hopefully Reggie Evan can be an Oakley figure in the locker room. Not afraid to call players out, and not giving a shit about getting physical in games.
