Nobody Understands Hedo Turkoglu’s Trash Talk

by November 19, 2010

Hedo‘s former teammates say they couldn’t really decipher what he was trying to say to them during the Magic’s beatdown of Phoenix last night. From the Sentinel: “On Thursday night when the Magic played the Suns, Rashard Lewis found himself opposite Turkoglu and his constantly moving mouth. ‘He was talking noise, talking a little smack,’ Lewis said. ‘You can barely understand what he’s saying, but he’s saying something.’ Turk’s trash talk is a mix of English, Turkish and jibberish. Dwight Howard said it’s difficult to keep a straight face when Turkoglu gets going, especially in a game like Thursday. ‘It’s like mumble, mumble, mumble basket, mumble, mumble, mumble ball,’ Howard said, sort of. ‘It kind of confuses you as much as anything.’ Talking trash was about all Turkoglu did on Thursday. He finished 0-for-8 from the field and scored only two points.”
