The Definitive Evan Turner Greatest Hits Collection

"And with the second pick in the 2010 NBA
Draft
, the
Philadelphia 76ers
select Evan
Turner
from the Ohio
State
University."

That's what you'll hear tomorrow night as the Sixers make it
official. Turner, a Chicago native,  is a needed compliment to Andre Iguodala on the wing
and will bring his versatility to a franchise badly in need of a go-to
player.I truly was blessed this past season and post-season to have had
the opportunity to closely cover college basketball's most decorated
player in Ohio
State'
s Evan
Turner
.

"His Royal Smoothness" as I often call him, won the Wooden, the
Naismith
and pretty much every other national college
basketball
player of the year award (seven in total). And he could
very well be the next Scottie
Pippen
. He's also EASILY the most blogged about individual
athlete in The Sports Bank's history.

I've written so much about him during this past year, I think his
mother Iris James is the only person on this Earth who knows more about
Turner than I do.
