Who You Callin’ Dirty?

(Boulder-CO) It is being reported today by the Rocky Mountain News that two players, Toronto's Rasho Nesterovic and Seattle's Andre Brown, are calling Reggie “The Joker” Evans dirty. Such allegations bring me to propose the question: Do YOU think Reggie is a dirty player or just a hard-working, misunderstood role player who is just so happy to be in the game that his motor runs hot?

I will say this though… Chris Kaman…

Reggie Evans... A dirty player??!! Yeah right... he doesn't even get enough minutes to think about being a dirty player. Reg is all about the hustle. He sacrifices his body for the better of his team, and on occasion, he fouls somebody while going for the ball. That's the game of basketball!! Can we really take the word of some no namer up in Seattle (I am a life long SuperSonics fan and I have no friggin clue who Andre Brown is) or a european player? European players need to get used to the physical game that is played in the NBA and realize you can't just flop on every play and get the call. Reggie Evans a dirty player... please. Every team in the NBA would be lucky to have a guy with the hustle that reggie gives for every second of his 15 minutes of playing time per game. I am glad the Nugs have Reggie and hope they hold on to him for the future. Great hustle, great on the boards, but dirty, I just don't see it.

He is really good at taking charges, which I hate (the whole dynamic that creating charges spawns)... He does that thing where he slides in front of guys as they're leaving the ground to get calls (a la Bowen, Manu, etc.) fairly often. I think he's just taking advantage of a flawed system basically... The league rewards guys for 'hustling' to take charges and possibly endanger their (and the other player's) health by giving them the calls more often than not. That's the real problem -- they really need to start giving techs for obvious flops and not call charges if the guy is already leaving the ground (unless he's wildly out of control).

He's definitely a great hustling guy, but so is Manu, and I hate that d-bag. He does questionable things, but they certainly don't seem malicious like the crap that grim-ass Bruce Bowen does. My vote is no, but he does stuff that I don't like. And yeah... Kaman would probably disagree.
