Exclamation Hedo's wife has never even been to Toronto

Quote:
I have information that is going to come as a bit of a surprise to Trail Blazers fans, and I don't know how else to put this so I'm just going to come right out with it.

It's this: Hedo Turkoglu's wife is not even living in Canada.

It's true. The $53 million free-agent who jilted Portland for Toronto last summer because his wife reportedly preferred a metropolitan city over the Northwest is living in Orlando with the couple's 1-year old daughter.
Quote:
"Don't know who made that story about my wife," Turkoglu said. "She would love it here. Or anywhere. The last second Toronto came in and it felt like a good fit -- East Coast style. I thought I fit good. My wife never said she didn't like to be in Portland."

Turns out Mrs. Turkoglu should be booing ESPN, which issued that report. Or perhaps Turkoglu's agent didn't want to offend Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard for dumping Portland in the 11th hour and threw Mrs. Turkoglu under the bus as an excuse. Or maybe someone there just got it flat wrong.

Quote:
As Portland was mopping up the Raptors with a very crisp offensive effort it felt a lot like the Blazers just might have a chance.

The Blazers are mostly healthy, and headed into a week with four days of rest. They're getting comfortable together. Coach Nate McMillan is figuring out what he wants out of each unit. Roy and Co. look like a group that is peaking.

Turkoglu?

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

"The introduction booing I expect," Turkoglu said, "but the whole game?"

He smiled when he said that.

You figure Mrs. Turkoglu wishes things could have been different too. She makes a lousy scapegoat. Portland's a wonderful place, with great people, and she should visit here sometime. But if you're looking to invite her, try reaching her in Florida, not Canada.

"She's never even been to Canada once," Hedo said, "you could check her papers and my little baby's papers if you want."

I was thinking about this yesterday. It was obviously a story used as cover, if not just the usual ESPN incompetence. I was thinking the real reason could have been about Portland not being overly enthusiastic about him playing for Turkey in the summer, and Maybe BC being openly enthusiastic about Hedo playing for his country.

And now I wonder why I think of such a thing - just to make myself crazy? But it could very well have played into the situation.

Yeah, and if we were still struggling we'd get threads asking, "would we be better if we'd signed Hedo?"

Whatever

Maybe he and his wife are on the outs, which is why she's never been to Toronto and why he's sucked a big one here in Toronto.

Maybe Hedo wanted an extra $3 million and used his wife as an excuse for the change of heart rather than admitting it was all about the money.

So, you really believe he made his wife a scapegoat for an extra 3Mil over 5yrs to play in Canada where he has to pay higher taxes?

Come on.

definitely possible.
theres a lot of players out there that don't play well when their minds arent in it... and Hedo could be one of those guys.
He's missing his wife, upset over the fact that he isnt around his 1 year old daughter. that would be enough to effect someone mentally and in turn, effect his game.

He plainly said that his wife had nothing to do with it when he had his first press conference.

No. It's becuase he doesn't have the ball in his hands enough.

He does get to touch the ball alot before the opening tip when he asks for it from the ref. It looks kinda a funny. He bounced it a couple times, held it in front with two hands, for about 2 seconds while he admired it, than gave it up to the refs for the opening tip. That happened before the Portland game and i remember getting a chuckle out of it. He does this before every game. He sure loves that ball.
