D. Smith: Turkoglu, get selfish.....do something

Quote:
He has to be better

Hedo Turkoglu, that is.

That was exactly the kind of game he had to take over and he didnít and unless they start getting more and getting it more often from him, thereís no way they do anything other than muddle through.

Now, you know I never think one gameís entirely on one guy but, címon man, do something.

Go off for 30. Get a bit selfish. Take 20 shots.

Do something.

DVS, you're including his years of riding the pine in sacramento. he's only really emerged the last three years he spent in orlando, with his most improved award coming a couple of years back when he finally emerged as a premiere player in the league.
His numbers have declined since then, and his play as drastically.
Watch the games. He needs to step up when they need him, and that's been few and far between this year.

Sure his numbers are up but Hedo does need to step a little more. Yesterday night we only had Bosh and Hedo as our main scoreers but Hedo still couldn't get a lot of points. I was sorta dissapointed but I am willing to wait a little while for him to come around

The bison is Bosh, the lone warrior, with no team mates providing help. Turk is at home counting his cash.

Actually isn't the bison Triano and the wolves are the raps players? Bosh is the lone wolf at the bottom not wanting to burn any bridges in his quest for glory.

triano does not believe in the point forward.

I think its pretty obvious through the first 20 games that Triano has no idea how to use the players on this team other than Bosh.

JJ is a good 2 way pg and banks is a scrub. There is no way that these 2, especially banks should run the offense ahead of Hedo, unless thats how Triano wants it.

Jay has done a piss poor job setting the pecking order and establishing roles for his players.

Offensive options A) Bosh B) Everyone else.
Run Offense A) Jose B) Jack C) Banks D) Everyone else

Its a free for all out there with no roles set.

I dont' buy that... before the nagging injuries started to pile up and the team's confidence went for a dive they were the best offensive team in the league and that wasn't a 5 game sample either. I still think most of the issues are confidence, lack of hunger/energy and poor motivation on the part of the staff.

+1

I think that he has been horrible at defining roles for players like Turkoglu, Beli, Wright and even Jack. I shutter at the thaught of what he'll do when Evans returns. Will he then play Amir less? I think he needs to define roles and on top of that, his playbook is miniscule.

Great thread.

Anyway - I love the sweet passes - I love the cold-blooded instincts. But it's time to make the team around him better. I think his body is still pretty beat up, so I still have patience. But at some point soon, he's going to have to be more of a central character.
