Hedu Turkoglu’s New Commercial

August 31, 2009

The 2009-10 Toronto Raptors fooled everyone. When they threw 5 years and an amazing $53 million at him, many in the basketball world chortled. The jokes on us that did the laughing now. He’s a star baby, a god damned star.

Look at that video. Now watch it again, although it’s not like I had to tell you that because you already did. Not only is he somewhat capable on the hardcourt, but he’s a triple threat; he act’s, sings and dances. When was the last time you saw a 6’10” white man dance with such grace? My guess is on never.

So kudos to the Raptors. They might not win the championship this year, but they are going to have all the Turkish big wigs and celebrities banging down their door.

By the way, is it just me or could the video have done without the three I’m guessing sisters? Every time they showed up, the admittedly catchy song dies down and they just are not good enough singers or attractive enough to carry the video. It’s like that time I was in that super secret orgy and Verne “Mini Me” Troyer showed up. It was all fun and laughs, until he came around weirding people out.

[Edit: Apparently this is old, but I just saw it this morning.]

    Kra beat you by a month, Gally… However, you’ve got a much better version. Hedo actually is quite talented, though.

      Sigh. I’m on Canadian time. We’re always way behind on everything. I do think that he’ll help out the Raptors, but we overpaid.

    Enough with the overpaid bs.
    2 teams thought Hedo was worth over $50m, therefore he’s worth over $50m.

    Marketplace rules. The NBA salary are only limited by the CBA, people get paid based on what teams are willing to put out.

    The only time someone can be overpaid is when a team is bidding against itself.

    Besides – just what does anyone think a 16/5/5 player goes for? The MLE? Look around.

      People get paid what teams are willing to put out, except when people pull stunts and hold out and demand more money. But I suppose that the NBA does throw around money like Pacman Jones making it rain.
      Yes two teams thought he was worth $50million. The rest of them didn’t. And one of those teams, the Raptors is entering desperation mode. It was only a few years ago that they won their division. Now, they’re not even close.

        The rest of the teams with cap room. If other teams had thought they could get Hedo in a S&T the competion for his services would have been higher.

          Therein lies one of the major problems of the NBA. Nobody has cap room. It’s not because the cap is too low, but rather useless people(not saying Turkoglu) get exorbitant contracts. And because these useless people get the crazy contracts the marginally skilled, and skilled players make more than that. None of the other capped sports has an issue whereby nobody can make trades or sign people unless third and fourth teams are involved. Sure Hockey is going to face some rough spots when someone with an 8 year contract gets hurt 4 years in, and some teams are right at the cap, but it’s nowhere near the dire situation of the NBA.

    I was unaware that Canada still had a basketball team…

      That is because you are uneducated.

    Sick Video – Hilarious commentary. But can you please explain to me why Andre Agassi starts running up the escalator at the 40 second mark? What’s he saying? Also, are those 3 bridesmaids the best looking women they could find in Turkey? Really? They spent all that money to get Hedo and then skimped out on the girls? And who did that beat? Kanyeezie? Song is straight fire, man.

      Thank you. The only way that’s Agassi is if he invented a time machine and went back to when he had hair. Sneaky bastard probably did. Him and Steffi Graf are creating their own breed of super scientists. But yeah, way to spend all the money on Hedu. You mean to say they couldn’t find three attractive girls who could carry a tune?
