Why am I excited that the Raptors no longer employ the services of Hedo Turkoglu? This observation by TrueHoop's Henry Abbott pretty much sums it up:

If I am the Phoenix Suns, I have some serious concerns about my new player. First he fakes this controversy with Chandler, which went nowhere and just make him look sad and silly. Then he dove on the floor for the first time in years. I saw him down there and thought wow, look at Hedo Turkoglu diving on the floor! Then, of course, he needed medical attention and missed a good chunk of the game at the end of the bench, wrapped in a towel. The broadcasters pointed out that his coaches looked disgusted with him. When he finally got back in, he caught the ball and jacked a terrible shot, while well-covered, which missed badly. Never question his skill. But can you ever stop questioning his heart?

Andrea Bargnani looks as awkward in front of the camera as he does on the court. Shocking.

The Raptors are going to need more than trick shots from Jay Triano if they're going to challenge for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

But more than likely, we should expect the Raptors to run a full-page ad explaining why they're lottery bound this season.
