Evan Turner's Rookie Game Snub Is Outrageous and Shows What is Wrong With The NBA
@Plasticman....I'm hoping you nickname is for Kevin Durant...
Anyways I said in my own post that even NBA.com and their rookie ladder agree because they have been hard on Turner all year putting players averaging like 5 points on the Ladder because of one ten point game despite Turner scoring 16 in his debut and has been averaging a steady 8 or 7 points since then.
When I pasted it i thought it would be italicized
But anyways I sequed into that paste if you read closer.
@OhCanada I'm glad to hear not only do you understand but agree. But moreover When Iggy went out not only did Turner not get any real extra minutes, he didn't start either. Collins kept him on the bench and instead started Nocioni...?....Look at Nocioni now as Turner has gotten more comfortable Nocioni has basically disapeared.
Doug Collins falls in love with vets too much, like last night against the Magic Turner only played 12 minutes...?...How can you only give him 12 minutes when he is the perfect player to matchup with somebody like Reddick who played near 30. It is not that Turner has been inconsinstent it has been that his playing time has been inconsistent, had Collins been somebody who would of been fired if the team wasn't winning.
Just look at the Pacers, who were in the hunt for the 7th or 8th seed, Obrian got fired because he didn't give any playing time to the young plaers. Thats something like a big deal, especially if you're the second pick.
