Magic J-Rich: Turk is like a "free bird right now"

Quotes from SVG and others:

Quote:
"He's played well," Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said after Monday's game. "I think that the one thing is he's playing much lighter than he was when he was here the last time. . . . He looks quicker to me, even as he's gotten older. It looks like he's got his quickness back. He's down over 10 pounds from where he was before, and I think that's really helped him."
Quote:
"He's like a free bird right now," Magic swingman Jason Richardson said after Tuesday's game. "It's a system he's familiar with, and the ball is in his hands, and he's playing like the old Hedo people know he's capable of being."
Quote:
"He doesn't expect for me to have 30 points per game or 20 or 25 points per game, but . . . when he makes the call, he expects for me to make the right decision. . . . He really helped me to become one of the really good players in this league, and I owe him a lot."

Turkoglu insists he has no hard feelings about the Magic letting him sign with Toronto in summer 2009. Orlando offered Turkoglu a four-year extension worth approximately $36 million, but he ended up signing a five-year deal with the Raptors worth approximately $53 million.

"Sometimes for both sides, people think change would be good," he said. "In that situation, as a player, you always try to give (the best for) your family, and this organization (thought) that change would be good.

well as much as it may piss people off that he has regained some success in orlando i think most people saw it coming. He was given a gift going back there IMO. Now the responsibility lies with him to man up and earn that pay cheque. and judging by the weight loss i think he knows that.

I don't think he's going to play like crap the rest of the season but a career ending injury would be perfect for him in my eyes!!!

I wouldn't wish that on anyone and good for him if he can turn his career around. However, I still think he's a wanker for the way he spent his time here...

wishing injury upon someone is pretty harsh lol... even though he's a lazy bum outside of Orlando.

He's definitely playing better.

Lets look his stats

In Toronto
30,7 mpg, 11,3 ppg, 4,1 apg, 4.6 rpg with 0.409 pg

In Orlando
35,1 mpg, 12.5 ppg, 5,6 apg, 6 rpg with 0.442 pg

Not much difference according to stats, his rebounds, ppg and asists are better because of getting more minutes. His fg is better because he doesn't have to force shooting because he usually has the ball on his hands and doesn't feel pressure like being spot up shooter. And it seems he enjoys playing. Interesting.

It seems Hedo never can play with dominant pgs in his teams. Combo pg with Hedo works well and when he enjoys playing he plays better.
