Brooklyn Nets 'enforcer' Reggie Evans said his comments were blown out of proportion.
Evans, who was held scoreless in his matchup with LeBron James, said he didn't intend to downplay the Heat's championship in a lockout shortened season nor slighting the reigning NBA MVP.
"Well, I didn't say it didn't prove anything. Those were not my exact words," Evans said on SiriusXM radio's "Off the Dribble" show Thursday. "I just said they won a championship in a lockout season. That's what I said. So I never downplayed it or nothing, I just said they won a championship. That was really about it. I guess people just took it out of proportion."
Evans added it's just not in his DNA to express his views on Twitter or even with the press, insisting that he's a on-your-face kind of guy.
"One thing about me is like when I'm gonna talk about you, I'm pretty much gonna say it in your face. I'm not gonna go in the media and say it to the media," added Evans.
Evans, who recorded 24 points and 9 rebounds in that blowout victory, backed out from talking more about Williams' comments.
"I'm not going to sit here and give Reggie Evans a lot of press, because that is what is going to happen for the next couple days," James told ESPN Wednesday.
