Pic of the Day: A Young Evan Turner posing with Shaq
I think it’s always awesome when you hear stories about current NBA players meeting NBA players of the past. In this pic, Evan Turner looks real happy to be posing with a much slimmer looking Shaq than what Turner is probably used to seeing now.
Speaking of Shaq, he once said that David Robinson blew him off at a camp once and that’s why he had such a beef with the Admiral for so many years until they were teammates on Dream Team 3. Shaq also talked about the time Penny Hardaway didn’t have much time for a kid so he spent some time with him. That kid turned out to be Kobe Bryant and in his book Shaq wrote “I don’t know why, but I knew I was going to see that young cat again. I just knew.”
I’m not sure if I believe that quote but it makes for good storytelling.
