(the following story reminds of time Mike Gminski suggested he was bigger than Christ)

Former Philly G Evan Turner currently plies his trade for the Boston Celtics, and upon returning to the Wells Fargo Center for the first time since last season’s trade to Indiana, he received a harsh reception from his former acolytes.  Once the contest started, anyway, as the following quotes collected by CSN NE.coms A. Sherrod Blakely illustrate :

“Before the game I signed like 100,000 autographs, I’m kissing babies and what not and all that stuff,” quipped Turner. “I’m getting my hand kissed by people; I got little girls come up to me fainting.”

“Once the game started, it was like, ‘what the hell is going on?'” Turner said. “I was like, ‘this is weird. Did they take all the good people out?”

Turner added,  “I don’t worry about it anymore. I don’t want to sound super weird, but Jesus was hated too. At the end of the day, I just worry about the stuff that’s important. If it makes you happy to boo me, go ahead. I’m still happy. I put all that stuff behind me.”
