Evan Turner, the 26-year-old Boston Celtics guard, recently compared himself to Jesus Christ when speaking about people's dislike for him.
While Turner currently plays for the Celtics, he was a member of the 76ers for four years and seemed to understand the fans' decision to boo him during game against his former team earlier this week. Although Turner admitted that the comparison might sound "super weird" he mentioned the name of Jesus when getting booed during the game.
"I don't worry about it anymore. I don't want to sound super weird, but Jesus was hated too. At the end of the day, I just worry about the stuff that's important," Turner said, according to CSN New England. "If it makes you happy to boo me, go ahead. I'm still happy. I put all that stuff behind me." more >>
The Sacramento Kings fired coach Michael Malone on Sunday after the team's head failed to "live up to expectations of ownership," according to reports.

Cleveland Browns running back Andrew Hawkins has come under fire from police after wearing a shirt with the words "Justice for Tamir Rice and John Crawford" over his uniform on Sunday.
"It's pretty pathetic when athletes think they know the law. They should stick to what they know best on the field," Cleveland Police Patrolman's Association President Jeff Follmer told ABC News 5. "The Cleveland police protect and serve the Browns stadium and the Browns organization owes us an apology."
Hawkins' shirt drew the ire of the police; the 12-year-old was shot by Cleveland officer Timothy Loehmann on Nov. 22 and was instantly killed. His death caused a great deal of outrage after footage of the shooting, which showed that Loehmann drew his weapon and fired within seconds of pulling up to Rice. A medical examiner determined that the boy died of "a gunshot wound of the torso with injuries of major vessel, intestines and pelvis," which he labeled homicide. more >>
