Evan Turner Defiantly Says ‘I’m not a loser’
Evan Turner was defiant after scoring a game-high 23 points in the Philadelphia 76ers’ 127-97 preseason loss to the undermanned Brooklyn Nets.
“I don’t think we’re going down,” Turner said when asked how he’ll cope with all the losing this season, as the Sixers take a run at the top overall pick in next summer’s draft. “I never woke up and thought I was going to be unsuccessful in my life.
“There’s different type of successes, in general, personal and team-wise. We’ve got to keep getting better,” he said. “But I’m not going to sit here and be a loser. … I’m not a loser. Period. Point blank. So I’m not going to sit there and dwell on it. Period.”
