Having faced his own accusations of jaking it last season, who better to defend former Raptors PF Chris Bosh from Toronto GM Bryan Colangelo’s recent criticism than the Suns’ newly acquired Hedo Turkoglu? “Now that Chris has left,” surmises Turkoglu, “it’s not nice to say these things.” From Fox Sports Arizona’s Craig Morgan :
œPeople have to realize something is wrong with that organization and nobody wants to go there any more, Turkoglu said in a phone interview from Turkey, where he is captaining the Turkish national team at the World Championships. œIt™s not just the players who see this.
œIt™s funny that people will talk behind your back, Turkoglu said of Colangelo. œIf he was feeling this way, why not have the guts to say it during the season? Why not say it to Chris?
œChris has been a franchise player and he did a lot of good things for the Raptors, Turkoglu added. œI don™t think Chris is the type of player to quit on his teammates.
At least one observer — one who professes to have been “watching those Raptor matinees on Sunday afternoon while the rest of the sportswriting lot was watching pro football” — strongly disagrees.
