I know this isn’t going to sit well with his teammates and for the life of me I can’t figure it out because there doesn’t seem to be much history there so seeing Hedo Turkoglu in the midst of the Warriors celebration for Nelliie’s 1,332nd coaching victory was just another bad decision.
Normally, I’d be all right with a guy offering congratulations to an opponent who’d reached some milestone, it’s good sportsmanship, there are friendships in the game and it doesn’t usually matter all that much.
But with Chris Bosh almost inconsolable – and I don’t remember maybe ever seeing him that emotional after a game – and the season almost in the toilet, for Turk to be in the middle of a bunch of jubilant Warriors was just wrong.
Say congrats later, wait until you’ve gone over things with your own guys, don’t immediately walk to the other bench and the party.
I don’t know if any of Turk’s teammates saw that; if they did, I know for a fact they’d be hugely ticked.
