Tyreke Evans is one of the best young guards in the National Basketball Association.

Evans burst onto the scene last year with the Sacramento Kings after being drafted fourth overall in the 2009 entry draft.  

In his first year in the NBA, Evans averaged 20.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 5.8 apg and 1.5 steals per game.  Tyreke made the NBA All-Rookie First Team and was voted the NBA Rookie of the Year beating out the favorite, Stephen Curry.

This year though, has been a slightly different story.  Tyreke Evans has still been a saving grace for the Kings but, has put up considerably less productive numbers.  It has come to light recently that Evans has been dealing with plantar fasciitis that has been bothering him for quite some time.

Evans has recently explained that there are two options for him.  The first, is for Tyreke to play through the pain until the season is over.  The second, that Evans could have surgery, sooner than later and would miss several months, possibly the rest of the season.

This article will take a look at the five reasons why Tyreke Evans should shut it down for the year, and five reasons that he shouldn't shut it down for the season.  Without further ado, let us begin.
