Turkoglu changes mind on mask

Quote:
Hedo Turkoglu has had a change of heart.
Oh, he still hates his Zorro-type mask with a passion and is concerned with the impact it will have on his game this afternoon and for however long he wears it.
But after further talks with team doctors and management, not to mention calls from equally concerned friends, Turkoglu has relented to wear the mask and protect the small fracture of his face just below the right eye.
“In the end I have to be smarter, too,” Turkoglu said. “Not think about the short term, think about the long term. If any case, I get hit again without the mask, it will cost me a lot of time to heal it. I will also leave the team, so I really don’t want that. I tried (Saturday) for the first time with the mask practising and... We’ll see. It’s going to be fun tomorrow.”
Turkoglu says that with a smile because it’s not going to be fun at all. It’s going to be annoying and cumbersome and uncomfortable and limiting.
But at the end of the day, it’s the safe play and if you’re going to err in a situation like this one, it’s always better to err on the side of caution.



Calderon to play against the Kings


Quote:
Anyone who has seen Jose Calderon in action on the basketball court, knows he is adept at sign language.
So as he walked out of practice Saturday and caught the eyes of a couple of reporters, the thumbs up signal from him was as telling as any five-minute interview.
Calderon, after sitting out one game with a sprained ankle, will be back in action Sunday against the Sacramento Kings.
"Unless there is a flare-up (Sunday) from something he did Saturday, then he will play," head coach Jay Triano said.
That gives Triano three key pieces back in the lineup that he didn't have Wednesday. Both Hedo Turkoglu, out two games with a small break in the orbital bone beneath his right eye and DeMar DeRozan who missed five games with a sprained ankle, will play as well.
Both DeRozan and Turkoglu will return to the starting five


Talking for Chris


Quote:
Early yesterday, Bosh was getting calls from friends asking him about a story that had him committing to the U.S. national team for the world championship this summer in Turkey.
The difference is this article had USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo stating Bosh had committed to the program.
"He's in," Colangelo is quoted in the story that appeared on Fanhouse. "I feel very good about it. He's got his free agency situation, but he understands we'll want him at (a July minicamp in Las Vegas) even though he won't have to participate. If you show respect to somebody, respect comes back to you."
Apparently Colangelo, the father of Raptors president and GM Bryan Colangelo, came to this conclusion after a recent visit to Toronto where he spent time with Bosh.
Bosh was taken aback by the statements in the article.
"I don't know where that came from really," he said Saturday after practice.
"Well, maybe some words got mixed up, but I haven't fully committed.
"I've got a whole bunch of stuff going on this summer. I feel I have to deal with that first and then we'll talk about (playing for the U.S.) after that is done."
That stuff Bosh refers to is determining his NBA future, whether that's with the Raptors or some other NBA club






Reluctant Hedo Turkoglu saves some face


Quote:
"It's going to be fun," Turkoglu said after he practised wearing the two-strap contraption Saturday afternoon. "I'm excited about it, too. I can't wait to see and I'm going to watch the film after to see how I looked."
Turkoglu was at first reluctant to wear the mask to protect an injury he suffered a week ago after running into the elbow of Indiana Pacers forward Mike Dunleavy.
Team officials were equally adamant that he wear one – doctors might not have cleared him to play without it – and it looked like confrontation was on the horizon. But after discussion with his friends and family, Turkoglu relented.
"I talked to a couple of other doctors, a couple of other friends and they really kind of told me the same stuff that these guys told me," he said "It's not that I didn't believe (Raptors doctors), but (friends) called me because they heard I wasn't going to wear the mask and they said, `Don't be stupid.'"
Part of the reason for the change of heart was the worry that another hit would have meant a far longer recuperation process. No one knows for certain what could have happened but Turkoglu decided better safe than sorry.
"I really appreciate their concern and all that. ... In the end I have to be smarter, too, and not think about the short-term, think about the long-term," he said.
"If ... I get hit again without the mask, it would cost me a long time to get healed and I'd leave the team short and I really don't want that."










Kings-Raptors Preview


Quote:

1. The Raptors, who have won back-to-back games against the Kings, have never won three straight against Sacramento.
2. The Raptors have won six straight (and 12 of their last 13) games at home, while shooting just under 50 percent (49.8) from the field over the 13-game stretch.
3. Toronto has scored 100 or more points in a franchise-best 15 straight games, more than doubling the previous franchise-high for consecutive games with 100 points (seven games: March 5-16, 2008).
4. Andrea Bargnani is the only player in the NBA this season with more than 60 three-pointers (78) and 60 blocks (69).




Ailene Voisin: Former King Turkoglu catching on with Raptors


Quote:
Normally, Hedo Turkoglu is about as combative as a carton of milk. Until the past several months, his only brush with controversy occurred almost a decade ago, when as an NBA neophyte, he publicly threatened to take Doug Christie's starting job.
We all remember how that went. Christie laughed. A sheepish Turkoglu apologized. And Christie not only clung to the job, he went on to enjoy his best seasons as the Kings' primary playmaker.

Love the JC. I have to give kudos to Kris Kristofferson though. Not much to choose from of his version on Ytube - but this one's pretty good.

Its funny how you guys rank them, yet you'd cut off your right arm to hook up with either of them.

I'll meet you in the middle, Jeff. In my opinion, she looks more like 31 than 26. However, I'd give her more than a 7/10.

HAHA

That's probably true, dude. In terms of physical appearances, I'm not super picky when it comes to dating women. I'm ranking these girls ,but I'm not saying that I'm better than any of them. I can't speak for the other guys, but I doubt many of them honestly believe deep down that they are somehow better people than these girls, just because the girl isn't a 10. Maybe a few do...who knows?

Anyways, I'm no gift to women. I acknowledge that.

Sure. 8 or maybe a 7.5. Jeff, think about it. I'm in my late 20s, so a 31 year old isn't that much older than me. If I saw her on the street, I'd say "hmm...there's a hot girl who is about my age."

31 is not old, dude. lol In fact, I occasionally see a 40+ year old that I'd really like to nail.

Does that clarify things?

If she looks like she's in her 30's @ 26yrs old....what will she look like when she is in her 30's...40?
