I don’t have direct access to Turner’s online musings, since he blocked me on Twitter. But, through the power of the retweet, his curious Instagrams still make their way across my timeline.
His last two weren’t so good.
First up is this faux NBA 2k13 cover, tweeted yesterday by Turner, with all the Sixers’ stars: Evan, Jrue, Andrew… and Andre?
Not sure why Beaker would Tweet a cover with his ex-teammate (and oft-maligned star) hovering above the Sixers like he’s more powerful or something. I’m looking too much into it, I know, but it reminds me of the time Steve Jobs needed Bill Gates to bail Apple out from near bankruptcy and featured the Microsoft CEO, larger than life, on a screen hovering above the stage at an Apple event. Jobs later regretted that imagery. Turner’s cover is sort of like that. Only, nothing like it. And we can move on.
Number two: ET would like you to guess whose feet these are: A) Jason Richardon’s, B) Royal Ivey’s, or C) Jrue Holiday’s:
I’m going to go with A, since JRich has the 15 most made three-pointers in NBA history, and with that, may come wear and tear on your feet. But if the answer is C, we’re all in big trouble, because ain’t no point guard I know running an up-tempo offense with dem critters.
Carry on. Please.
