Default Hungover Hedo gets benched

The last straw for Hedo | Basketball | Sports | Toronto Sun

Well GREAT.

Turkoglu missed Friday’s heartbreaker to Denver because of a stomach ailment, which first surfaced at halftime of last Wednesday’s loss to Utah.

It was later discovered that Turkoglu spent Friday night out on the town.

The team became aware of the situation following e-mails that were allegedly sent to different club officials.

The decision to not play Turkoglu clearly stems from Friday’s no-show against the Nuggets.

What the fuck!!

I honestly at this point, can't wait for this season to end. What a disasterous end to a very promissing season. 5 weeks ago we were in 5th place and now we're on the brink of missing the playoffs. Un fuckin' real!

GET OUT THE SALAMI & CHEESE MAMMA THIS SEASON IS OVER

Can someone explain to me why, when we make contracts with players, there are no caveats in the contract to protect the team and motivate the player?

A contract is a deal, and Hedo should have to live up to that deal. $53 million should be cut by a quarter, a third or by half if the player violates enough of the contracts conditions. Our contracts need conditions, caveats, qualifiers.

If you don't show up to training camp, that's a violation. If you are caught partying, that's a violation. If your stats are way lower than what we hired you for, then that's a violation.

If you tally up enough violations, the NBA should permit a cut in the players salary. Dude is a bum, and we have to pay him for doing nothing.

If Hedo had the sense he was risking his pay check, he would work harder.

Hedo has ALWAYS had the rep of being lazy... and being a partyer.

BC should have done his homework.

Clearly he didn't.

This fuck-up is all on him. And I fully expect him to fix it this summer.

I never though that I would have had to watch us go through the Vince Carter fiasco AGAIN... but that's exactly what's happening.

No effort.... laughing on the bench.... makes me sick.

I agree with Cory about the contracts being unfair to teams if the player turns out to be a bust. NFL has it right, the player signs with a team and get a large bonus which is the only guaranteed part of their deal. The remaining years of the contract the team can waive the player if they feel he is not worth it, which takes him off the books and saves them paying years for busts.

The benching came in the wake of reports that Turkoglu was out in Toronto’s trendy Yorkville district after the Raptors’ crushing loss to the Denver Nuggets on Friday night, a game he didn’t play because of a stomach virus that caused him to leave at halftime of the Raptors loss’ to the Utah Jazz last Wednesday.

When pressed, Raptors president Bryan Colangelo said that word of Turkoglu’s night out had reached the team – apparently fans had spotted him and sent e-mails to team officials and some media – and the matter had been dealt with “internally,” the implication being that the Turkish small forward had been fined.

Before last night’s game, Turkoglu denied that he’d been out at all, but added that what he said didn’t matter.

“It’s all good, man,” Turkoglu said. “I’ve been dealing with this [stuff] the whole year. They’ve been on me on this [going out] the whole year long. If I wasn’t out, sick or healthy, they [the fans] would still say something. I don’t say anything. Ten games left of the season, all I try finish strong.”

If my memory doesn't deceive me, he always liked clubs. Apperantly being a father couldn't slow him down. In another thread, it was mentioned that his family were still in Orlando. Living a bachelor life is not good for him and Toronto. If he did this in Turkiye and rest of Europe, he'd be severely punished.

This is only coming out because of Triano being made to look so bad over it after the game.

What the f.. are U takin' about?
Hedo wasn't lazy till Toronto days and he's definitely not a partyer.There're big problems with him and Triano and that's mostly because of Triano.That won't go anymore so we must let him play so he could be traded with another team

actually that's not true. His motivation and drive have been in question in the past - as discussed by Jack Armstrong and Eric Smith on the radio. I guess it wasn't as big of an issue with Stan Van Gundy always on his ass.

yep - Orlando talked about his lack of game readiness on Sunday afternoon games.

This is another example of what you get with a player's league. Shit like this actually makes me hope for a lockout. But if they go that route they had better be able to bring in something much closer to the NFL.
