Evan Turner Compares Himself To Jesus In Return To Phildelphia

Evan Turner

It seems Evan Turner‘s return to Philadelphia was similar to Beatles first coming over to America, with girls “fainting” and Turner getting his “hand kissed by people” before the game. But when the game started, the boo’s rang down, prompting Turner to align his plight with that of Jesus Christ. Read More »

Video: Evan Turner’s Game-Tying Three-Pointer Sends Celtics & Wizards To OT

Evan Turner

What a crazy game in Washington last night. We had a full-court shot that didn’t count, two overtimes, and an emotional post-game interview by John Wall who dedicated the hard-fought victory to the hard-fought battle six-year-old Miyah Telemaque-Nelson lost against cancer (we’re still getting choked up about that). Adding to the madcap night was Evan Turner‘s game-tying three-pointer with under a second left in regulation to force the first overtime. Read More »

Evan Turner Says Kyle Korver “Can’t Guard To Save His Life”

Kyle Korver, Evan Turner

The bucket was as big as a bath tub for Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver last night during Atlanta’s 109-105 win over the Celtics at Philips Arena. But the C’s were prepared for the onslaught, assigning Evan Turner to mark Korver. Except, as Turner said after the game, he felt the Atlanta three-point ace got an unfair advantage from the refs. Turner even denigrated Korver’s defense by saying, “he has no business being in the game on the defensive end.” Read More »

GIF: Steve Blake Crossover Smokes Evan Turner

Steve Blake, Evan Turner

Perhaps it’s because we used to watch him tear up the ACC for Maryland, but we’re never surprised when Steve Blake shows off skills that belie his neighbor next door exterior. Neither, for that matter, is former teammate Kobe Bryant. Blake showed off his handle and his quickness by abusing Evan Turner on a crossover last night before draining a three-pointer in Portland’s 94-88 win at the Garden. Read More »

Evan Turner Ejected For Throwing Ball At Ref (Video)

Evan Turner, James Johnson

Evan Turner was running point guard for the Celtics last night during their preseason game against the Raptors. He was doing pretty well, too, shooting the ball efficiently (5-of-9), and getting his teammates involved (six dimes). Except, it was a pass to the referee that got him tossed from the game near the end of the third quarter. Read More »

Reviewing The Sam Hinkie Era In Philadelphia

Sam Hinkie

It seems as though Sam Hinkie is almost done stripping down the team he took over after the 2012-13 NBA season. With Thaddeus Young officially traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the only player remaining on the Philadelphia 76ers roster, who was also on the roster when Hinkie took over, is — you guessed it — Jason Richardson. With Thad gone, it’s now official to say this is a Sixers team, with the exception of J-Rich, completely built by Hinkie, and it’s not a very good one, at least not yet. Read More »

25 College Stars Who Were Busts In The NBA

Jimmer Fredette

NCAA seasons come and go before many of us can even comprehend that they happened. In around 40 games stars rise and fall, March serving as a showcase for what we think is the best that college basketball has to offer.

Unfortunately, America’s most exciting tournament isn’t always an indicator of future success. Whether it’s quality of competition, holes in their game, or problems that haven’t manifested themselves yet, many college basketball luminaries have seen their success come to an abrupt halt after stepping off campus. For some, their 15 seconds of fame in the One Shining Moment montage will be the pinnacle of their hoops careers. Read More »
