I think at the beginning of my career, it might have touched me a little bit or something. But now I’m about to start my 11th season, and I know how it goes. You can’t control that, and as I said before, I was focused on Eurobasket anyway.

Without panicking, Evan let the storm pass, and seems satisfied to start a second campaign in NY. Impossible to say the same for the New York fans, many of whom rail against his announced return to the five of the team !
