You Buying Hedo Turkoglu’s Excuse for Missed Dunk?

That Hedo Turkoglu hung on the rim moment brought to you by Sprite came on Tuesday night against the Mavericks. Hedo’s embarrassing play made its way around the intertubes Wednesday as expected. Naturally, reporters had no choice but to ask Hedo about the play, and of course he made excuses.

Turkoglu said Wednesday “I was fouled,” while motioning to his hip. Yeah, yeah, he was touched on his hip, but there’s no denying that he took off way too early for that dunk. After that play, his “Michael Jordan of Turkey” nickname may have to be rescinded. Luckily Andray Blatche happened Wednesday to take the pressure off Hedo because there’s really no excuse for that.

    He can never admit to just straight up playing bad basketball. Same BS in Toronto last year blaming it on being sick… Suck it up Turkish Jordan for $10 mil a year you can finish a dunk even if you are fouled.
