The evolution of Tyreke Evans' game can be traced back to Indiana. That's where Kings coach Keith Smart, as a college player, met Indiana University legends Isiah Thomas and Quinn Buckner, two of the best point guards to come through the program. They introduced Smart to the idea of mapping out the floor. Rather than just drive to the rim with no plan, they told Smart he should know where to deliver the ball at all times based on where defenders rotated from. "When you make a move in one area, you're going to cause a response," Smart said.
