Evan Turner, and the Boston Celtics rotation

Social media can be a funny thing. The ebbs and flows are predictable. There's the initial shock of an announcement, then the overreaction to the news, the reaction to the overreaction, and then a landing spot. Basically, we're extras in a 'Titantic' like-movie.

Turner has averaged 11.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists over four NBA seasons. This...
