Orlando Magic lack a classic go-to guy, so Hedo Turkoglu has to do

Full story: Orlando Sentinel

In the wake of the Orlando Magic trying to treat a case of separation anxiety between Dwight Howard and his beloved basketball, is this ironic truth: The Magic don't feel they have a player who fits the NBA description of a star go-to guy.

The thing that really stinks for all Magic fans is that you all will have to come back in here and listen to the Celtic fans rant and rave about their team.
You're an idiot, it's not Larry Bird, Bill Russell or Kevin Garnett walking through that door. That 32-0 stat was done with the great Celtic teams of the past. The Celtics barely scraped by the Bulls(thanks to the refs) and the only reason this series is tied is because Orlando did it to themselves. Boston is scared and they know it. I am backing the Magic on this one and you better never come back to these forums when Orlando sends the flopping and dirty Celtics packing for the summer. Moron.

I want nothing more than to see Kevin Garnett walking off the court on Sunday night with his head down and a scowl on his face. Let's go Magic!!

Love these can't be done records...32 and 0 when we were all picking our nose at the same time or some kinda cheap crap like that. Records will be broken sometime and I won't be sorry to see it happen to Boston and their wonderful uplifting fans in game 7. We haven't shot worth a damn and have been in the game. So, here we go...some one has to win, it may as well be us and how bout now. Boston has played their eyes out but we can and have beat them. I'm calling it for the Magic. Believe we can. Go Magic.

As for Hedo never has been worth a crap for any team he played for, and still isn't worth a crap. So many sucky players on this team to even consider them Finals material. Maybe stay with D12 and do a total makeover they can be the Joan Rivers of the NBA.

how can that one and only go to guy be the go to guy when that one and only go to guy *COUGH JJ COUGH* can't even create his own shot? thats a joke

REALLY??? Pierce or ANYONE on the Celtics is calling out someone on the MAGIC for trying to manipulate the refs??? They taught the freakin' class on that crap! They get twice as many foul calls.
How do you trip over your own damn two feet and get a foul called on the other team? Ask Rajon Rondo.
How do you shoot a ball that barely grazes the net and get the 24 second clock reset? Ask Boston.
How do you elbow, choke, mug and otherwise assault the other team and not only not get suspended, but barely get a foul called? Ask Kendrick "Orc" Perkins?
That's has to be aggravating. The above mentioned was painfully obvious, so you do have a legitimate beef.

See this comment from the article is why I can't stand the Sentinel writers. They think they are funny but usually they are just coming across like a_ssholes;

"In the wake of the Orlando Magic trying to treat a case of separation anxiety between Dwight Howard and his beloved basketball, consider this for an ironic truth:"

You are not funny Brian Schmitz and I think most of your stories you steal by reading the forums here after other fans say things. You guys don't seem to have the ability to have any fresh ideas.

Jim, seriously, you said you wouldnt come back. You said Philly would beat Orlando, you said Orlando wouldnt win either of the games in Boston. Enough already. Your 'name change' doesnt fool anyone.

Tre, Jim is a liar. He has lied about a lot of things.

Having said that he keeps coming back and doing this because people like you keep encouraging him by complaining to him about his posts. A troll is satisfied when he has annoyed somebody or gets negative attention. You are fulfilling his mission when you respond to him.

Turk can go from having an overall poor-OK playoff year to great playoff year and very, very, very likely staying on the Magic if the Magic win Game 7. Thats the truth.

You are probably correct Derek. Winning game 7 would do tons toward healing the psyche of Magic fans everywhere, lol.

Any season ticket holder can tell you Hedo Turkoglu has proven in the last 3rd of the season and playoffs that he is not the guy. Hedo can't even make 50% of layups. His shooting is terrible from 3 and 2 point areas. He has high turnovers many of which do not get recorded. He cannot pass the ball. Van Gundy has him control the ball and he is slow and has no plan. Against Philly he could not even get the ball past center court in 8 seconds. When is Van Gundy going to open his eyes and find another plan or does Stan want to prove Shaq is right?
Any chance that you may be an Armenian???

I think it's funny how people use 32-0 when up 3-2 as a reason why the celts have the advantage. LOL. I could see them using this year's bulls series and last years series' but come on now... What does this team have to do with teams from the 80s? They aren't even the same team w/o KG. The only game 7 closeout win i take into consideration is from the bulls series and the magic are so much better than the Bulls on the road.

If people want to use a reason why the celts will win, they should be saying homecourt where perkins and davis will be allowed to sexually assault howard.
