The same determination Reggie Evans puts into trying to snatch another rebound, he demonstrates off the court with his children, trying to be the best father he can be. Evans is the kind of father Evans never had. As he puts it, "There's not a week that goes by that I don't think about my dad." Growing up in Pensacola, Fla., Evans hardly knew his father, Reginald, who was incarcerated for selling drugs. Instead, the power forward was raised by his mother, Janie, in an arrangement that is becoming all too common in the United States. According to the latest census data, more than half of all African-American children are being raised in fatherless homes. ESPN.com

How do you think he'll help your game? Reggie Evans: "He's going to be beneficial to me and Deron Williams. It will be incredible for Deron to work with Jason because his knowledge is so vast. I'm most excited about the impact that it's going to have on Deron, because Deron's relationships with the other players is very important to the team's success. The relationship of two point guards of that caliber should help our team, because we'll all be able to feed off of them so much more. I'm very excited to continue to work with Deron under that kind of leadership." ESPN.com

Is the the physical stuff that crossed the line? “Verbal can cross the line and physical can cross the line. Both of them can cross the line because sometime verbal is sometimes as worse as physical. So it’s just all depends on what you say verbally. If you get to saying some of the stuff he was saying, I’m kinda used to that on the streets. If your homeboy on the streets is saying that, it’s cool. But if it’s somebody that’s not your homeboy, it’s a good chance something can go down. So from a coaching standpoint, if you didn’t recruit me like that, and I go to arena and you start coaching me like that, I’m going to have to take it somewhere else. You expect to go into a good environment and learn from a guy for four years, five years, however long you’re there. And some players want to be coaches, and that’s nothing you want to learn from.” New York Daily News

The turning point for Reggie Evans occurred when he held his tongue and stepped out of character, avoiding conflict after a teammate told interim coach P.J. Carlesimo that the forward needed to be benched because he was an offensive liability. Evans, typically outspoken, said he left it alone at that moment instead of lashing back, using the insult as motivation before progressing into the most positively surprising season for the Nets. “I got frustrated one day when one of my teammates told my coach to take me out the game. I bit my tongue. I didn’t say nothing to (my teammate),” Evans said. “But me, knowing me, I usually attack and say something. I bit my tongue. I said, ‘OK.’ I said, ‘All right, start being aggressive.’ So I took it in a positive way, instead of just doing my normal self, like ‘What you say? What you say?’” New York Daily News

The Nets power forward, appearing on SiriusXM’s “Off The Dribble,” said he didn’t knock the fact the Heat claimed last season’s title at the end of a lockout shortened season before Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Heat. “I didn’t say it didn’t prove anything,” Evans said. “Those were not my exact words. I said they won a championship in a lockout season. That’s what I said. That was really about it. “I never said they did not prove anything. I just said they won a championship in a lockout season. That was it. I guess people just took it out of proportion, that’s all.” New York Post
