VIDEO: Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, Donovan Smith On The Basketball Court

July 2nd, 2018

Perhaps many current Buccaneers don’t know or remember how former Tampa Bay kicker Connor Barth screwed up his career.

Or maybe they don’t realize that seemingly every offseason at least one NFL player tosses away millions of dollars because of a basketball injury.

Too many guys are willing to gamble big time in the name of fun — and sometimes charity. Joe gets that they’re young and feeling untouchable by fate, but it’s still a foolish move to play in a pickup basketball game — especially one being filmed and the video can land in the computer of your employer. (You can’t even fabricate an excuse if you wrench an ankle or tore up a knee in that scenario.

Anyway, in May, Mike Evans hosted a charity basketball game near his Texas hometown and he, Jameis Winston and Donovan Smith can be seen below participating in the full-court game.

Jameis is seen right away handling the ball and looking for contact. First, he gets stripped, then commits a charging foul, before driving hard to the hoop and converting something that looked like a layup. There’s more, too.

Thankfully, nobody got hurt.

  4. Dewey Selmon Says:

    I don’t want Winston guarding me, f’n crotch grabber

  5. AlteredEgo Says:

    Hugh Green ,a monster LB, basically ended his career riding as passenger in a car accident…

  6. 813bucboi Says:

    we know how folks are feeling about Winston at this point……

    screw the poll for Winston….

    its time for a confidence poll on dirk……he’s had more than enough time to create a plan around fitz… its time to rally the troops and get to work…..

    how many folks are confident that dirk can rally the troops and save his job……or does he even want this job anymore…….


  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    From Wilmington NC…..home of Connor Barth……what a shame.

    It is a dangerous thing to do……and injuries happen.

    …just had a curious notion ,or perhaps a brief escape ….Man U net worth as of a moth ago
    Soccer is on a great run.

    The 20 most valuable soccer teams in the world are worth an average of $1.69 billion, up 14% over the past year and 74% since 2013. The surge in values has been underpinned by revenue growth. The top 20 teams raked in an average of $428 million in revenue during the 2016-2017 season, 40% more than five years ago.

    This is our 15th annual list of the World’s Most Valuable Soccer Teams, and for the second consecutive year, Manchester United takes the top spot, worth $4.12 billion, up from $3.69 billion last year. Manchester United generated the most revenue ($737 million) during the 2016-2017 season and nearly 50% more operating income ($254 million) than any other soccer team


    Basketball: sprained ankle, twisted knee waiting to happen….

  10. Stanglassman Says:

    Charity event for Hurricane relief for Galveston, Tx is a noble cause. I think the bonding with teammates and raising of funds outweigh the low risk.

    Any word on why Winston fired his agent?

  11. Knucknbuc Says:

    You can also sprain your ankle walking 2. Should we make these guys buy hoverboards so they can not take any necessary risks?

  12. The Graham Tram Says:

    So you want tougher practices but less basketball?

  13. DB55 Says:

    Is he allowed to breathe or would some prefer he stop that too?

  14. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Winston is not known for good judgement, or following rules….whether or not he is permitted to do such activities. Don’t Count on Winston. Ever.

  15. Pryda... sec147 Says:

    That’s pretty cool lots of dunks and 3’s not much defense no problem with this go Jameis and Bucs

  16. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    If you get hurt in a charity basketball game, more than likely you will get hurt walking to the car. Connor Barth is a kicker, not a real football player. These guys play a dangerous game, a little basketball won’t kill them. Besides, they pretty much all played in high school.

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    From what I am reading, he wishes to retain agents with more Football experience. In particular ones who are better suited to negotiate his next contract.
    He also probably wants to move on from the current group to start with a clean slate…..

  18. jmarkbuc Says:


    What do the Bucs generate in revenue?

    $200m in Tv revenue has been bandied about, I think it’s closer to 250m.

    Either way, no wonder the Glazers aren’t worried about fan attendance. Especially with the exchange rate pounds to dollars

    Things get to bad around here and it will be The London Buccaneers

  19. Miguel Grande Says:

    Reminds me of my friend, Pistol Pete Maravich.

    Greatest baller of all time, pick up basketball game, heart explodes.


  20. D-Rome Says:

    They need to stick to playing HORSE and that’s it.

  21. JameisNOT Says:

    I had to stop reading when “at first he was stripped”, well duh….it is Jameis Winston

  22. Chris Cotten Says:

    The music was TURRIBLE

  23. Jeffbuc Says:

    Couldnt watch that music was horrendous. Why not just hear the players and squeaky shoes. Great lyrics though. Man im from Texas go check my plates. If you fill up my plate you know I’m gonna eat.

  24. JameisNOT Says:

    That music did make me “black out”.

  25. Tony LA Says:

    Trade for another QB to compete with Fitz
    New regime next year
    Tear down and rebuild

    What would you rather have?
    Fitz as the starter and then blowing up the franchise?
    Or a real chance at winning THIS year?

  26. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Pistol Pete died from a missing left cornary artery. His right artery had compensated for the loss by swelling, but finally gave way in a pick up game. Just a minute prior he had declared that he “felt great”….

  27. Jaywill Says:

    Its for charity. Its there choice. Its not a bad decision when its for a good cause

  28. Jaywill Says:

    People really going to complain about a charity event. Fans are stupid.

  29. Marc Says:
