Tyreke Evans got Tebowned

Tyreke Evans is a huge Steelers fan. So while his team was losing to the Magic this weekend, his favorite team was being eliminated by the best/worst quarterback in the history of everything. And 'Reke? Well, 'Reke isn't so much a fan of Tim Tebow now. From Cowbell Kingdom

It got me thinking. Is there anything like Tebow in the NBA? His fourth quarter dynamics make you think of Kobe Bryant, but Bryant is actually, well, nearly flawless at what he does, versus Tebow, who upon throwing for 316 yards last weekend changed the minds of a lot of people by throwing for over... well, 100 yards. He's polarizing, as is LeBron James, but then, James is largely the anti-Tebow. He's despised by a vast majority of the country, he's exceptionally talented and his abilities have never been questioned in terms of whether he belongs at the pro level, and he fails repeatedly in the fourth quarter, as he did Tuesday night. 

The only real possibility for there to be a Tebow in the NBA is Jimmer Fredette. Fredette is polarizing, a former player of the year in college, a really good kid by all accounts, and had questions about whether he could play at this level. Fredette has not taken the league by storm, but if he does turn a corner, look out.

In the meantime, we agree with 'Reke's closing assessment.

I dislike the whole Tebow craze because, honestly, I hate having religion being mixed up in something I normally enjoy. Football. Any sport really, or politics, or work, etc.. Having a religion is alot like having a penis; Yeah, alot of people have them and they can be alot of fun, but is it really necessary to whip them out all the time in public, waving them in people's faces?

Really, Tebow starts to pray as SD lines up for the game winning field goal.This is what I call fake religiosity in sports.He wants to thank his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the Chargers missing the field goal. The longer your home schooled the lower you IQ goes down.

who has a higher degree of faith than most
Why do people always come back to the faith?  Why can't it ever be left out of a Tebow conversation?  Does he have faith?  Yeah, but it's IMPOSSIBLE to call it higher than most.  Everyone has faith in something, even if that faith is rooted in negativity.  Any belief structure is built on faith.  It doesn't have to just be religion.  Donald Trump has faith that his businesses will continue to succeed despite his many Chapter 11s.  Is Tebow's faith higher?  No.  Why?  Because it's impossible to quantify.  So, please, shut the hell up about it.

As a footnote, I must add that his comments stink of sour grapes.

Tyreke is another in the long list of haters that cannot fathom that one such as Tebow, who has a higher degree of faith than most, can overcome whatever challenges arise regardless of the critics and naysayers assessments of his ability or lack there of. That being said, who cares what a chump like Tyreke thinks?

Why is Tim Tebow so threatening to so many people?  Because humans do not like change.  The fish-wrap hacks and the talking heads cannot stand this guy because he makes them uncomfortable.  NFL quarterbacks are supposed to look and act like all those guys just good enough to get you beat: Philip Rivers, Matt Cassell and Kyle Orton, Jason Campbell and Carlson Palmer... do I need to go on and on?  Those are just the AFC West guys.  The league's full of 'em.  The Broncos season will likely end Saturday, but TT will not go away.  Despite what we may say, we don't like to change, especially when it comes to our thinking...

If the broncos do make it to the SB<  Tim Tebow won't be worst QB to lead a team for a shot. It will always be Trent Dilfer and Rex Grossman.

Trent can thank his defense and the KO return for his dismal QB performance for a SB win with the run up and the entire regular season.

Matt Moore is this a serious article?  That is the most pointless video I have ever watched.  And Jimmer is the NBA's version of Tebow?  How do you still have a job?
