Cousy was trying to establish a driving school (Driver's education) in Worcester, Massachusetts and did not want to move into a left field consisting of three small towns of Moline (Moline, Illinois), Rock Island (Rock Island, Illinois) and Davenport (Davenport, Iowa). As compensation for having to give up his driving school, Cousy demanded a salary of $10,000 from Blackhawks owner Bob Kerner. When Kerner only offered him $6,000, Cousy refused to report. The latter was then picked up by the Chicago Stags, but when they folded, league Commissioner Maurice Podoloff declared three Stags available for a dispersal draft: Stags scoring champion Max Zaslofsky, Andy Phillip and Cousy. Walter A. Brown, owner of the Boston Celtics, was one of the three club bosses invited. He later made it clear that he was hoping for Zaslofsky, would have tolerated Phillip, and did not want Cousy. When the Celtics drew Cousy, Brown confessed: "I could have fallen to the floor." Hence, Cousy became a Celtic, with Brown reluctantly giving him a $9,000 salary. Evans faced almost no opposition in his next four campaigns, reflecting the growing influence of Moline (Moline, Illinois) and Rock Island in what had once been a very rural district. In 1994, however, Evans only won by nine points over an unknown Republican who spent almost no money. This emboldened the Republicans for 1996, when Evans faced Mark Baker, an anchor at WGEM-TV in Quincy (Quincy, Illinois) (the third-largest city in the district). Even though Bill Clinton carried the district by a healthy 30,000 votes, Evans defeated Baker by only five percentage points. A 1998 rematch was even closer, with Evans only winning by 6,000 votes. A third run by Baker in 2000 saw Evans win by almost 10 points. Redistricting after the 2000 census made Evans much safer. Decatur (Decatur, Illinois) and part of Springfield (Springfield, Illinois) were added while some more rural areas were taken out. The redistricting process, guided by House Speaker (Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives) and 14th District Congressman Dennis Hastert and 3rd District Congressman Bill Lipinski, solidified the holdings of many Illinois incumbents. Evans was re-elected in 2002 and 2004 by margins similar to those he scored in the 1980s and early 1990s.
