Colangelo deals Kapono in bid to add toughness

Three-point specialist on his way to Philadelphia in exchange for rugged forward Evans


He's a career 46.8-per-cent shooter from the floor and converts free throws at just a 52.5-per-cent rate, indicative of his overall offensive skills. But the Raptors have plenty of players who like to shoot the ball, but have been chronically short of players who like to go get it when they miss.

Evans can help fix that, as he averaged 4.6 rebounds in just 14 minutes a game last season.

"Reggie Evans will certainly add an element of toughness to our team," Colangelo said yesterday in announcing the deal. "He has very good rebounding and defensive instincts - addressing two areas where we have underperformed."

Evans's willingness to do the dirty work was demonstrated in the 2006 playoffs when he was with the Denver Nuggets. He was fined $10,000 (U.S.) by the NBA for grabbing the testicles of Los Angeles Clippers centre Chris Kaman while battling for position.

I mean we all know he got his hand caught in the cookie jar, but really? That's something that i'd expect in a blog, but not the globe and mail.

Hopefully Evans won't follow in the footsteps of Kapono and underachieve.

I'm more amazed at the fact that we agree upon something, but yes that paragraph is ridiculously out of place and I absolutely love it. God love creative writing.

Maybe the next time Kobe's lighting us up, he could grab his testicles and have Kobe retaliate and get ejected from the game. It'd be a win win situation.

The Colangelo-Bosh one was funnier though.
