Evan Turner was mic’d up for CSN New England’s broadcast of the game. As expected, the colorful swingman had several amusing things to say throughout the contest. But when asked about the experience after the game, he didn’t single out a favorite, instead electing to select everything. “I think everything should be quoted and put in like a little book, you know?” Turner joked. “That’s just how I feel about my life in general. It’s all worth hearing and worth reading.”

Evan Turner’s number will hang in the rafters next to Celtics legend John Havlicek’s — just not in Boston. Ohio State University has announced plans to honor Turner’s three-year career during a Feb. 16 halftime ceremony at Value City Arena. From that day forward, his jersey will hang next to Havlicek’s, Jerry Lucas’s, Jim Jackson’s and Gary Bradds’s. The latter three all won college player of the year awards, while Havlicek, a Hall of Famer, settled for eight NBA championships, 13 NBA All-Star appearances, five NBA All-Defensive first teams, and becoming the leading scorer in Celtics history.
Only two players remain on the roster from Turner’s final season with the 76ers — Hollis Thompson and Nerlens Noel, the latter of whom missed his entire rookie season due to injury. “We had a new player, like, every week, you know what I’m saying?” said Turner, whose Boston Celtics came to town for a Sunday evening tipoff with the Sixers. “… It was what it was, and it can always be worse.”
