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



 
Tebowmania
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.

"The only real possibility for there to be a Tebow in the NBA is "
only if somehowhits game winnign shots in the forth quarter 22 times out of the 66 game schedule this year. otherwise, nobody is a story like tebow. I also think in basketball terms, fredette is abtter shooter, than tebow is a football passer. so scratch my first comment. the answer is NOBODY
