Watch ‘Hedo Turkoglu’ travel from Turkey to Tinseltown through the power of interpretive dance (Video)

Ball Don't Lie

Sure, you know that after he was waived by the Orlando Magic, comeback-seeking forward Hedo Turkoglu signed a deal to spend the rest of this season with the Los Angeles Clippers. You might also know that while the 34-year-old Turkoglu hasn't put up particularly impressive numbers in his first 10 games, shooting just under 37 percent from the field and averaging 2.5 points in 12 minutes per game thus far, he's seemed to fit in fairly well with the Clippers, who have outscored opponents by 29 points in his 96 minutes to date. You may even know that, in his time away from the NBA, Hedo appears to have stepped up his hand-licking game to a significant (and disgusting) degree.

But do you know how the veteran 'za-lover and party animal made his way from Turkey to Hollywood? If you guessed "by plane," well, friend, you clearly don't know how Hedo prefers to travel:

If Turkoglu moves half as well in his floor time for Doc Rivers as longtime friend of BDL Tas Melas of NBA TV's "The Starters" moves in impersonating him, then the Clippers will have gotten one of the steals of the season. Keep dancing like no one's watching, "Hedo." Shine on, you crazy diamond.
