Make no mistake about it… Tyreke is not going to Memphis to further his education. His goal is to be one and done. But for anyone that is expecting the next coming of Derrick Rose, understand now that Tyreke is not even close to the athlete or point guard of the electric D. Rose. In fact, if it wasn’t for this year’s Senior class being a down year, Tyreke wouldn’t have garnered all the accolades that came his way. He is a tremendous scorer and a superb talent, but Tyreke has a long way to go before he can even contemplate a jump to the pro-level.
His brother Reggie, has somewhat of a different view as to the type of player Memphis is getting, "CDR and Derrick put together a hell of a tandem, but I think 'Reke is both of them in one," Reggie Evans said. "He's Derrick handling the ball, and he's CDR with his scoring ability. All he needs is a little help around him. They could make another run at it."
Not quite, but we’ll see…
