Hidayet Turkoglu: I've been in the NBA for 13 years and the only European who's been in the league longer than I have is Nowitzki. I have one more goal in the NBA, which is to enter the 1,000-game club.. I'm very close to that goal. After I accomplish my goal, I'll either play in Fenerbahce (which I'm a big fan of) or play in Anadolu Efes, which helped me get where I am today as a player. I get a lot of messages from Fenerbahce fans but first I have to get through this period. After the hard part is over, I think I'll enjoy making that decision. Ajansspor.com
