Can’t believe that Okafor made first team over Turner. Just goes to show that these awards are based on basic performance stats more than anything else :(

As a Pacers fan, I disagree. Turner had a good season but didn’t come on til late. Despite his stats being an inflated result of how bad the 76ers were, Okafor still had a better season than Turner.
