Indiana Pacers Rumors
You’ve got a new team this year. Are you looking forward to playing in Indiana this season? Tyreke Evans: “I’m definitely looking forward to this season. I went out there for two weeks, just to get to know the trainers and the coaching staff. Worked out with some of the guys there, some of the young guys. … I was there for two weeks working out with them. Coach is excited about the work I was doing and excited to have me. I’m looking forward to it. I think it’s going to be a good year for us.”
Did the Sixers reach out to you in free agency at all? Tyreke Evans: “No, I did not hear from the Sixers in free agency. I know that during the trade deadline, they wanted me. But they were probably looking for something else in free agency. I don’t really know what they were doing over there but I definitely didn’t hear from them.”
How did Myles Turner, a 6-foot-11 professional basketball player in his early 20s end up looking “pudgy” by his own critique despite all of the exercise he did? Well, this diet, as he described to ESPN: “Cutting Popeyes fried chicken, Waffle House and Whataburger out of his diet and no longer devouring eight slices of pizza in one meal, Turner hired a personal chef; he has sculpted his body from 14 percent body fat down to nearly half that. In mid-June, Turner posted before-and-after pictures of his body, and new six-pack, on Twitter that went viral.” Yes. An entire pizza in one sitting.
“I took a look at myself in the mirror last season, and I was pudgy,” Turner told ESPN after sweating his way through an hour-plus vinyasa flow hot yoga session in Las Vegas last month. “I was getting tired a lot faster, and a lot of that had to do with eating fast food, eating pizza the nights before games.
