Turk spurns Blazers for Raps, the Mrs. decides..

In HOT BUTTON TOPIC, INTERNATIONAL NEWS, NBA, PHILOSOPHY OF SPORT, SPORTS on July 4, 2009 at UTC.44.31.

Free agent forward Hedo Turkoglu was in Portland since Thursday reportedly getting a feel for the city & team that he was thinking of signing with. The Blazers offered him a 5 year contact worth about $50 million, although reports surfaced that Toronto was a late player for the 6’10” small forward.

Turkoglu helped the Orlando Magic get to the NBA Finals this passt season, and was one of the hottest sought after free agents this off-season. Ric Bucher reported that, “Turkoglu’s as a happily married man would take into account his wife’s desire to move to Toronto, as opposed to Portland.” Well, it loooks like she may have played a more decisive role than people in Portland know!

Now, perhaps teams will try & woo the whole family instead of just the player. Technically, when a team signs a player they inherit the whole family.  So it might behoove GM’s to look into flattering the “significant other” as well and not just the player!

She may not play the game like her husband, although her decision making ability being the “House Manager” affords her carte blanche in decisive relocation packages, and refusal or acceptance respectively!

Orlando fans are sad to see Turk depart, but they get to see more of him since he’ll be playing for rival Raptors just across thenorthern border.

  1. Why would he want to go to a sorry ass team in the Raptors. They have Bosh and a bunch of nobodys! I’d go to Portland to join Roy and Aldridge if I were him! Check out our site http://doin-work.com
