Tyreke Evans (2009-2010)
I know what you’re thinking… It’s VERY weird to see the name Tyreke Evans on a list featuring some of the greatest players in NBA history. I agree, it’s VERY weird. But believe it or not, Tyreke belongs on this list. And if you’re still in shock, this will surely make your head spin… Evans beat out Steph Curry to win the Rookie of the Year Award. He finished with a very impressive stat line: 20.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.5 steals. Evans has been mediocre (at best) throughout his NBA career, but you can’t ignore his brilliant rookie season.
