Every time I watch a Clipper game and Reggie Evans makes a play, not always a good play maybe a rebound the fans go crazy and when he scores the players on the bench stand up and cheer. I have seen him have some really good games, but why he's like how a ton of Laker fans on here love Troy Murphy even though there less than average and maybe as good as an average player.

because he's the typical hustle player that does all the little things to help his team, and usually those players are the fan favourites. he got the same reactions here in Toronto too. he's a very funny and likable guy

As a player, he's the epitome of hustle and energy. Fans love that. He does all the dirty work on the floor - defense, rebounding, goes all out for loose balls, etc. He's a terribly annoying guy to play against because he will always "out-effort" you, but he's a guy you love to have on your team and a guy fans love to root for.

As a person, he's just a hilariously goofy dude with an awesome personality so he connects with the fans like no one else can.

Bottom line, he's the ****ing man.

Back-to-back-to-back Toronto fans like him.. I guess he's just a likable guy if he's on your team, but not when you're going against him.

btw Laker fans don't like Murphy.. But they (we?) did like Luke. Every time he was inserted into the game the crowd would cheer him on.

Ya in your "we?" I am a Laker fan for life I bleed purple and gold, but I remember more towards the beginning and middle of the season everybody had Troy Murphy sigs. I like Reggie Evens too he is fun to like and he is the only Clipper I like because I hate the Clippers and am annoyed by everybody that just started being Clipper fans this year. I also think that Jordan Hill on the Lakers is just like that and a double double machine, but not everybody loves him, but if the Lakers resign him I think everybody will love him. Right now most people like him not love him.

Nah, those Murphy posts & sigs were a joke. :laugh2: Everyone would talk so great about him just to be sarcastic (and funny), this is why nobody "praises" him anymore. It was all just a joke.

As far as Evans goes.. I'm not a fan. I'm sure I would like him if he were on the Lakers though but we already have our own dirty work players.

One of my favorite players, the guy fit in Philly like a glove. Ed Stefanski should be shot for trading Reggie for Jason Kablowno.

I'll never forget his performance in this game. He was such a pest and we beat down Detroit. The whole arena chanting his name was incredible.

Not a lot of dudes who grab balls just to win a season game, it's him and KG, pretty elite class right there.

An underrated element are the 2 syllables needed to chant his name aloud. Its real easy to shout RE - GGIE , RE - GGIE . If his name were Rojelio he wouldnt get as many chants.

I guess you must also be wondering why Mike James is the GOAT :p

Best hustle player in the game and 2nd best rebounding PF behind Kevin Love IMHO.

He just has an incredible knack for drawing fouls, getting huge boards, and making plays on defense.

If you watch him enough, it's OBVIOUS why fans love him.

I actually did really like Reggie when he was with the Sixers. He always creeped me out with his on court body language, but you can tell he loves his role.

He's the enforcer... i LIKED him before. Now he starts to annoy me because he is becoming a flopper... When he got pushed by gasol last night he started flopping around like a fish and the ref just looked at him probably thinking "you aint fooling me, you just did a hard pick on mayo and now you cant hold your ground" lols

I think a lot of people like Reggie Evans because he hustles and works hard. Makes me think of going out and working at my job to make a living. He reminds us all that it's a honor to be an NBA player, not a birth right.

Scalabrine is the same in Chicago. We all like to see him play because he doesn't take the opportunity to play for granted.
