So, um, Allen Iverson's Turkish League debut was nothing to write home about. He scored two points for Besiktas Cola Turka in a 74-67 defeat to Fenerbahce Ulker on Sunday (although he did score 15 points in a Euro Cup game earlier in the week). Oh boy.
Perhaps more interesting was his coach's comments about AI in practice:
"When he comes first practice, he couldn't make even one point the whole practice. He shoot the ball, bonk, bonk, bonk."
Bonk. Bonk. Bonk. As Eric Freeman (@freemaneric) of Ball Don't Lie pointed out, there probably wasn't much lost in translation- "bonk" is pretty much universal language.
For the record, I still have December 21st in the "When Does AI Unceremoniously Leave Turkey Pool."
