Evan Turner Doesn’t Sound Too Confident In His Ability To Defend Kevin Durant And Paul George
The Boston Celtics took a huge blow this weekend when they found out versatile forward Jae Crowder would be missing a few weeks due to a high ankle sprain, sidelining, arguably, their best defender and one of the team’s top players.
With Crowder out, the defensive responsibility falls on Evan Turner to shutdown the opposing team’s best player in the Celts’ next three games, which happen to be Paul George, Kevin Durant and DeMar DeRozan, respectively, which would cause any player headaches.
According to Twitter, when told about who he’d have to defend in those games, Turner’s reply was what many of us would think—nervousness:
Going up against three, top-10 scorers, Turner’s reaction was both honest and hilarious, yet probably makes Celtics fans nervous as all hell.
