    Default Hedo's Celebration With Nelson & Golden State

    Hmmm ... didn't see the game yesterday, but Doug reported this afterwards.

    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.

    There is no video. Apparently Doug Smith was the only one who saw this cuz they definitely didn't capture this on TV.

    Hedo was the 2nd guy to go over to Bosh after the game, getting to Bosh right after Jack. I don't know what Doug Smith is talking about. It seems no matter what Hedo does someone is going to hate it. He has a right to be annoyed at everyone in Toronto outside of the organization. He has been made the scapegoat for this season, and everything that goes wrong somehow ends up being Hedo's fault.

    I dunno about the Reggie thing. But prayer is legit - it is the most holy day in the Christian Calendar.

    Hedo had no business doing anything other than going over to Bosh. I just hope he can make us all forget any of this happened and come out strong in the playoffs.

    The camera guys/media coverage prolly didn't "air" live coverage of it cuz they knew there would be immediate and irreparable damage done by that. Just a theory. Raps fans would absolutely massacre Hedon't. This has pushed me over the edge-I've gone from being disappointed and somewhat disgusted by his play/behavior to outright hating the guy.

    GET HIS LAME, I'M THE BIGGEST FLOP IN THE HISTORY OF THE NBA ASS THE F**K OUTTA HERE NOW!!!

    I doubt that anyone in the production truck was worried about what the fans would think

    No way. Book it: He will continue to play his auto (robotic) mode for rest of season/post season then leave here without looking his back.

    If you read into his attitudes-mimics in last couple of games, Hoping him come strong and expect him to play his A game in playoffs must be - as a one word- a Joke. You must be blind not to see broke relation btw him and team&coach.

    It was predictable disaster year for him. A team that doesn't fit his style, terrible coach, terrible sport media, terrible fan base, pressure of "fat" contract combined with tired, out of shape Hedo. The result was so obvious from long ago.

    I'm sure this nightmare will last soon (hope not more than 4 months) and Hedo-Raptors story will join the other black pages of NBA history.

    I remember this episode of Seinfeld where George was down on his luck and depressed. It seemed like anything he did or said ended up going wrong in someway and he was a failure as a result. While talking about it all with his friend Jerry he had this moment of clarity, everything he had thought to do or and say in his life by instinct was absolutely wrong and so he swore he would do the opposite of everything he naturally though or said. Suddenly he was a big winner. Found a job working with the Yankees fixing his unemployment problem, moved out of his parents house and got a girl. This my friends, is what Hedo Turkglu must do. He needs to use the George Costanza opposites principle. Whatever Hedo thinks he should so, he needs to do the opposite. Ditto for speaking. Just think about it for a second... Instead of celebrating with the Warriors like a moron douche bag he would have been consoling his teammates. Instead of not playing defense or rebounding or trying for that matter he could be impacting games in a way where the pathetic Warriors wouldn't have a chance at winning in the first place. Instead of partying after calling in sick he would have not called in sick or had been home resting. Let's take it a step further. Instead of deciding to sign with the Raptors he would have done the opposite, signed with the Blazers. Everybody can win with this... If only he had begun in July.

    "Terrible fan base"??? Are you joking? Have ya ever watched any of the home games? Have ya ever been to one of the games at the ACC?? My guess is absolutely not... Not so sure about the "terrible sport media" comment either...

    Vellasco sounds like an undercover Stephen A. Smith

    Ma be Toronto Raptors should apply George Costanzas' opposites principle itself too. After 15 years with NONE (how many times you tried re-building process 7? 10?) may be you should do opposite of what you did or what you think huh.

    No i haven't been in Toronto even once nor ACC. I also haven't been in Moon too.

    Sorry if i broke your feelings. I actually don't like to make sick generalizations. It's my fault. To be fair ill change my claim: Your fan base seems like a soup from mixture of sugar, salt and mostly pepper (yeck) and you are calling it multiculturalism.

    To continue with Apollo's Seinfeld reference.. when George enters a meeting with the sole purpose to deliver a zinger to a former co-worker, the co-worker comments on George's overeating of shrimp, "Hey George, the ocean called, it's runnin out of shrimp". To this George delivers his prepared line, "Oh ya Riley, the jerk store called, they're runnin out of you!" Vellasco, you are Riley. In case you weren't able to follow the proceedings of the joke I've outlined for you, (as your spelling and grammar implies that you have the mind of a six year old) I am simply saying that you are a jerk.

    Not at all surprising, since he did just tie the record for wins by a coach. I also enjoy how everyone is yelling at Turk for not going over to Bosh. Did anyone notice that no one went straight over to Bosh? Hedo was actually the 2nd person to get to Bosh when he was lying on the ground, arriving only a second of Jack did.

    All season long everyone has done nothing but blow things out of proportion. From the Bosh leaving rumors, to Hedo's interview, and now this. The only thing that was actually a big deal this year was Hedo partying after to sick to participate in a game or practice or whatever it was.
