Games identify games, they say. That statement couldn’t be truer before Week 3’s Monday Night Football game. Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver and star Mike Evans arrived at the game wearing a LeBron James high school jersey, which is sure to elicit some kind of reaction from avid social media users.

In addition to his signature moss green jersey, Evans wore designer sunglasses and a thick chain with an even thicker pendant hanging from it. Before what was sure to be one of the Buccaneers’ most difficult games of the season, Evans – one of the leaders of this team and arguably their WR1 – looked very calm, cool and collected.
Mike Evans looks to continue his monster performance against the Chicago Bears in Week 2, in which he caught six passes for 171 yards and one touchdown. The performance drew praise from his former Buccaneers teammate and GOAT Tom Brady. Then he gracefully entered the stadium on Monday to salute another GOAT, which was about as good a start as anyone could ask for.
While the Bears aren’t quite on the same level as the Super Bowl LLVI finalist Eagles, the underdog Buccaneers will need Evans to be on a similar level if they hope to continue their strong start and pull off an upset. s level.
Of course, if Evans’ attire is any indication of his desire to play like he did today — see: LeBron James comes back from 3-1 deficit in NBA Finals — then Buccaneers fans can expect their veteran Stars deliver great performances.
