Now, there might be an explanation for the varied production from the young Sixer. Excepts from a book written by a teammate of Turner’s at Ohio State indicate that Turner was prone to emotional outbursts and recent comments from Stan Hochman of the Daily News during a stint on WIP have people wondering if Turner has a legitimate issue that is holding back his progression. Some of the guys at Grantland brought up that possibility in a recent podcast. [Crossing Broad]
