An All-Star to the rescue of Evan Fournier, at the bottom of the hole!


Evan Fournier is having perhaps the most difficult period of his long career, but he does not intend to give up. He posted a viral message on social media for the past few hours and received support from many players, including an All-Star.

What if the EuroBasket had been a harbinger of what awaited Evan Fournier at the Knicks this season? Propelled into the role of captain of the France team in the absence of Nicolas Batum, the rear of the Blues unfortunately did not live up to this status at the start of the school year, clearly leaving the sporting leadership to a great Rudy Gobert, but also to a decisive Thomas Heurtel in important moments.

And since returning to New York, Fournier hasn’t regained the confidence that made him a solid forward in the NBA. Very badly used by Tom Thibodeau, he chained tasteless performances until being benched for several weeks. The Knicks’ results did not not improved in its absence, quite the contrarybut he does not seem destined to return to the field as long as his coach is in office.

Nikola Vucevic shows his support for Evan Fournier

The good news is that he doesn’t seem to lose hope and he continues to work in his corner, waiting for the end of his sideline or better yet, a trade. The proof, he posted a viral message on social networks on Monday and received the support of all his friends, including Nicolas Batum and Rudy Gobert. But that’s not all, since his former buddy from Orlando Nikola Vucevic also went there with his message:

It’s a marathon. Push to the end.

Nikola Vucevic played for many years with Evan Fournier, and because he speaks perfect French, the two players inevitably got closer… The problem is that the Bulls are at least as much in crisis as the tricolor rear, so fans didn’t appreciate this message of support. Obviously, in Chicago, we would prefer that the pivot focuses on his performance and the results of the team.

And if you too pushed us to win a game? Or ask for an exchange.

Evan Fournier is in crisis in New York, but he is far from being the only one in this case. So is Nikola Vucevic and the Bulls, which made his full-back support quite irritating for all the fans. What if they both found themselves on a new team?
