Toronto Raptors forward Reggie Evans has strong opinions on gender issues. Posted by Ben Golliver Beneath Toronto Raptors power forward Reggie Evans's burly and bearded exterior hides an enlightened scholar on gender issues. Asked how the Raptors are coping now that former teammate and all star Chris Bosh left to team up with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in Miami, Evans told Holly MacKenzie of The Score that he does not dwell on the past because moping is not part of the male existence.
"Only girls sit around and mope. I’m speaking from a man’s perspective. Like if they come on the floor be moping and stuff, that’s what girls do. I’d look at them like a girl, doing what girls do, sitting around moping because of what happened yesterday, or last week that happened. Like my two girls, I have two girls, when I told them no, what they do? Put their heads down and mope. You know what I’m saying."
It is believed Evans acquired such a detailed understanding of the male and female mentalities through decades of careful observation and the occasional surgical procedure, like this famous one he performed on Los Angeles Clippers center Chris Kaman. All jokes aside, Evans's attitude is on point, if a bit crude in delivery. The Raptors are clearly searching for a new identity in Bosh's absence and a forward-thinking approach, rather than the bitterness and pettiness spewed by GM Bryan Colangelo this fall, is the right way to go.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuu..

. this is a huge blow for the Raps. The Regend is our heart and soul man. We still have Amir Johnson to do the dirty work, but after that :/

Looks like Joey Dorsey's gonna have to step up. The good news is now Ed Davis will get some PT once he's back, and I guess the Raptors can really focus on securing that first overall pick instead of all this overachieving.
