Unhappy Why is Hedo never serious?

Quote:
Turkoglu spent the last few minutes before the game warming up on the Magicís end of the court, taking shots with his former teammates

...in Miami on Tuesday night, while the Raptors were being blown out against the Heat, he could be seen frequently smiling through the storm on the bench
Does he take anything seriously?

Do you take anything lightly?

I think that's just Hedo's personality. Did you ever see Hedo all flustered and angry before with Orlando?

babyface kind of said what I was looking for.

I guess he's just not a serious guy, even in the heat of battle.

He was serious in Orlando. Toronto is something of a retirement home for him

I think hes being realistic. Unlike Orlando, Toronto doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell of winning a ring, so why bother getting all frustrated?

well, idk about that. imo he's a bit of a stoic.

but I think the smiling on the bench is bound to happen sometimes. losing day in day out, you're probably not going to look unhappy and frustrated everytime. There's a breaking point for everything. But I think they're rather disingenous smiles than out of joy. like people do when they're bazzled, don't know what to do with themselves any more.

the warm up thing: i think you should just take that lightly - hence ^. Although I can imagine a coach would say something about it.

anyone getting paid - especially if it is to do what they love and for large sums of money - should have a personal sense of pride in what they do. if you're not going to care, you're not worth your salary.

Looks like a real bad signing now for real!! He seems to be just collecting his money...Which is what Jose looks like he's doing as well as Banks & then we have Bosh playing for more money! Mark my words Bosh will have his worst season since his second year in the league in 10-11 just because he got his pay check.

Why would he care? It's like if I got paid 10 million dollars a year to shovel my driveway... even in the worst storms I'd still be smiling. This guy is way overpaid. And not to mention he's got a decent group of fans who put him in the same sentence as Michael Jordan and currently think he's better than Vince Carter .

People were saying we don't wanna give Marion 10 mil a year because his legs will wear out... but we paid 10 mil for a guy who's legs have already run out .

i think its the whole teams philosophy, no one cares if we win or lose. Some might care but they have no clue how to express their anger. When i use to play, if our team was doing bad, one of our team mates will just lose it in the locker room. I mean he will throw stuff on the ground and yelling at anyone (i mean anyone even the players that are doing well). After those outbreaks, we will just play our butts off, it wasn't to proff to our teammates that we dont suck. It was just us realizing that we are making ur selves look bad and we are not going to allow it.

In this team, we lose. we live with it. That is a problem, sadly i dunt see us solving that problem any time soon

And THIS is why I don't think that a coaching change will solve anything.

These guys just don't care.

Bargs & Hedo got paid this offseason. Where's the motivation for them?

I'm getting so tired of seeing a perimeter star in a Raps jersey smiling and laughing his way through games that we're being blown out of.

Curse of VC I guess.
