Hedo Turkoglu leaving Toronto Raptors for A Night at the Roxbury sequel?

He played hooky and got busted.

Last Friday, Toronto Raptors forward Hedo Turkoglu claimed he couldn’t play in the second half of a game against the Denver Nuggets because of a stomach virus. Yet, hours later he was caught poppin’ bubbly, buying shots, and getting his party-on at a trendy Toronto establishment.

Night at the Roxbury

This, of course, is the latest drama for Turkoglu, a disappointing off-season addition. He arrived at training camp out of shape. His play has been poor. And instead of helping the Raptors salvage something out of their season by securing the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, he’d rather hit up the clubs.

The good folks at Basketballjones have an explanation for Turkoglu’s shenanigans: he’s a party animal.

After watching the clip, Breaking Down the NBA agrees the former Orlando Magic closer loves the nightlife and is, perhaps, honing his moves for a role in the sequel to A Night at the Roxbury.

(Is Turk’ a Haddaway fan?)
