Ball Don't Lie

When there’s no more room in Hell, Reggie Evans is the dude Deron Williams wants on his side

Lastly, an important question we've all been wondering. If there was a zombie takeover of Brooklyn, and you had to choose one teammate — current or ex — to fight them off, who are you taking?

Oh, no question. Reggie Evans. He's tough. He's crazy. He'd have my back in any situation. You don't want someone who's going to run away and leave you when those zombies are coming at you. Reggie, he'd be there 'til the end. I know he'd be fighting every last one with me.

— Deron Williams, making an awful lot of sense in an interview with Peter Schrager of Wait, the best way to fight zombies is to squeeze their nards and/or play dead when they get near you, right?

This leads to an interesting question — which NBA player would you most like to have fighting alongside you in a post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland? The answer, to me, is clearly Minnesota Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic, the present-day NBA's most perfect combination of brawn and destructive force, who's been looking a bit more spry since cutting some weight this offseason, too, which would make him a more nimble fighter. That said, there are no wrong answers (save, obviously, for Eddy Curry), so let's hear yours in the comments.
