I’d be interested to see if any NBA players have talked to a reporter this offseason and said that they haven’t been working out, that they’re game has fallen off a bit, and that they’ve lost a few steps athletically since last season ended.
Because obviously every player says they’ve improved during the offseason. Evan Turner is no exception.
The Kid ET spoke with the Inquirer’s Kate Fagan recently and says that he’s got his confidence back, also pointing out that his new shot is smoother. Aside from bro’ing it up and working out with Andre Iguodala, how has Evan’s summer been, Kate asks.
“It’s been going well,” Turner tells her. “I’ve been working on my game a lot, playing
a lot of basketball. I’m pretty happy with the results I’ve been
getting; I feel like I’m back to my old self. I feel like my new shot is
smoother. I have a lot of confidence in it. It’s going well. I’ve been
enjoying it. And trying to get better.”
If this were a few seasons ago, I probably wouldn’t have cared all that much about an NBA lockout, but with the way Doug Collins had the 2010-2011 Sixers playing together, I’m actually quite bummed we may not get to see how they respond in 2011-2012. Evan Turner’s development and maturation is at the top of the list of things I’m wishing we’d get to see more of and sooner.
