New Albany (Ohio) basketball player Devon Pitts will remember his Senior Night for many reasons.
But the biggest memory will always be of good friend Evan Turner, former National Player of the Year at Ohio State University and now a guard for the Philadelphia 76ers. Turner flew in between NBA games to honor the young man, whom he began to mentor in 2005 after they were introduced through a mutual acquaintance.
“This is one of the greatest nights of my life,” an emotional Pitts told Rob Oller of the Columbus Dispatch. “Evan is like a brother to me.”
Turner, originally from Chicago, recalled, “We would text and talk and I came to Ohio and we’d hang out and I saw a little bit of myself in him. He’s kind of quiet and trying to find his way. The difference is, with the shyness and insecurities, I had a brother, Darius, who made me feel comfortable. Devon didn’t have any siblings. I just tried to lend an ear and lead by example. I told him,’It’s okay to do the right thing.’

The Clippers got a victory over the reeling Philadelphia 76ers tonight and in the process Blake Griffin added insult to injury by turning Spencer Hawes into a poster.
Personally the look of sheer concern for Hawes’ well-being by the Clippers bench is the funniest part of the video.
Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers , adds Philadelphia 76er Spencer Hawes, to his poster collection, with a monster right to left-handed dunk.
