Turkoglu needs jolt from rabid Blazer fans

30

Interesting wish from sportswriter Frank Zicarelli Maybe the boos that will rain on Hedo Turkoglu will knock some sense into the underachieving Raptors small forward, whose every step forward has been followed by three steps backward in Toronto. On Sunday, Turkoglu makes his first trip to Portland, where the basketball faithful is among the most rabid and educated in the NBA. Fans in Portland will air their feelings when Turkoglu has the ball in his hands, that much is certain. Deep down, they're probably grateful that Turkoglu didn't join the Blazers. No punch gets pulled, no word gets minced in small markets such as Portland, where the spotlight is always on the NBA.
