Hedo+Ball = Good Game

Hedo Turkoglu played the best game of his short Raptor career thus far, and he still isn't backing off of letting it be known that the more he has the ball in his hands, the better he will be and so will the Raptors as a result. So here's the thing. I know he's hardly lived up to his big contract and expectations so far, but I have to say: anytime he's had the ball in his hands, good things have happened. Sure, he's been shooting bricks before tonight's game in NY, but regardless, he's a great playmaker and he's lived up to that.

His one word answer to Jack Armstrong's question of why he was able to be so effective tonight and have such a great game is going to become an instant classic: "ball". He just stared at Jack Armstrong with swag and confidence and didn't care about how awkward the moment was.

This is one of the few times I've seen Turkoglu be really aggressive and look for his shot, and I like it. How rare is it to see him dunk, and dunk ferociously nonetheless? Did he dunk 3 times in all of last season in Orlando? He's completely selfless, he truly loves team ball, which is why he wants the ball in his hands more often so he can create. And he's selfish in the right way; what I mean by this is that he wants the ball in his hands and he' s not backing off that claim whether he's playing good or bad. And for better or worse, I like that. You could see his swag and cockiness after the game, still putting it out there for everyone even in the locker room post-game interview that he played so well because..he had the ball in his hands.

His talents go to waste if he's just being used as a spot-up shooter. He's facing a lot of heat lately from fans, and they're not unwarranted, but I'm definitely rooting for him, and I think when the playoffs come that's when he'll really show his worth.
