Scrub Evan Turner Thinks He’s Jesus


(There flies Jesus, erm, Evan Turner.)
The Philadelphia 76ers drafted Evan Turner with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft—they ended up shipping out his empty stats to the Indiana Pacers in 2014 after realizing they needed to tank harder.
Turner, now a member of the Boston Celtics, returned to Philly Monday night and was met with a mixed reception of cheers and boos.
His exaggerated personal account of people loving him via Comcast New England:

Before the game I signed like 100,000 autographs, I’m kissing babies and what not and all that stuff,” quipped Turner. “I’m getting my hand kissed by people; I got little girls come up to me fainting.

Really, Evan? The people of Philadelphia kissed your hand? These are the same people that still want to blast Donovan McNabb—and he did things with his career.
Then Turner turned his attention towards the jeers he received:

I don’t worry about it anymore. I don’t want to sound super weird, but Jesus was hated too. At the end of the day, I just worry about the stuff that’s important. If it makes you happy to boo me, go ahead. I’m still happy. I put all that stuff behind me.

I mean, I guess we can’t really dispute that, can we?
