Just keep at it Evan...you have to adjust to the pace of the game and realize that 90% of NBA basketball is offense, there isn't much defense played throughout the league.

A #2 pick not even starting? Better luck next season when you've learned how to play in the NBA.

16 points and seven rebounds coming off the bench against LeQuit! I'll take it.

Yeah, he led the team in points. Compare his game shooting 7-10 with 16 points to the #1 pick in John wall...shot 6-19 with 14 points. Turner will be fine, it may actually be good for him to come off the bench for a little while.
