The interview is a bit congested as it also features New Jersey Nets guard Deron Williams who was in Los Angeles along with Tyreke earlier this week after both were invited to play an early release of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation video game.
SLAM: Tyreke, obviously you have a young team with some nice pieces, what do you think you guys need to do to make that next step and be playing in the postseason?
Tyreke Evans: We got to start off the season strong and finish that way. Yeah, we’re young, but I’m coming into my third year in the NBA and I’m looking forward making a good run and getting into the Playoffs.
SLAM: Does that motivate you, seeing these other guys playing in the postseason?
TE: Definitely, I really want to be in that position, to make the Playoffs. I haven’t made the Playoffs yet, so looking forward to next year to try and make that push.
