Imagine: The year is 2017. You are the president of a dysfunctional NBA franchise, seemingly with no professional goals other than increasing the dysfunction of said franchise and maniacally preaching the virtues of triangles. You do not consider yourself beholden to your players or fans or, really, anyone. You’re…
It’s high time we checked in on Celtics guard Evan Turner, a perfectly mediocre basketball player whose self-absorption is so steadfast and unconvincing that it’s impossible not to find endearing.
This was, without a doubt, my favorite moment from last night’s game between the Cavaliers and Celtics. A little more than a minute before this happened, Celtics guard Evan Turner had just hit a three to put his team three points from the lead. Turner was feeling pretty good about himself after that shot, so good, in…
Down two to the Trail Blazers with under 10 seconds remaining, the Celtics were relying upon Jared Sullinger to get them a crucial basket. That should tell you all you need to know about how good they are, that Brad Stevens looked up and down his bench for his best option and settled upon Sullinger. The move didn't…
After a season in which their bottomed-out squad of plucky nobodies occasionally showed admirable spunk under first-year coach Brad Stevens, the Boston Celtics evidently decided they'd had enough of this not-being-hated-by-literally-everyone crap, and went out and signed ball-pounding avatar of hopelessness Evan…

What makes this a nice play is that Evan Turner thought Jeff Teague was going baseline, but Teague knew better and pulled up for the three, leaving Turner out to dry. What puts it over the top is that Turner and Roy Hibbert are in total synchronization.
Former Buckeye and current 76er Evan Turner is sporting a Marcus Hall-inspired shirt in anticipation of Ohio State's game against Michigan State later tonight.

There's a well-meaning NCAA program that made $54 million — $500k for OSU — available to players via a "Special Assistance Fund." It's a lovely idea that's sure to be abused in the next big college scandal. [The Lantern, h/t Dan]
Current thread titles at MGoBlog's message board: "God Hates Us," "Michigan Hating God," and "At what point do I poke myself in the eye with a stick," which is about the football team. [MGoBlog, h/t BML]
