Perfect scorer. You'd better not leave him open at all. Does not dribble too much, only to get open shot. Prefers distance shooting over running on the basket. Very quick with perfect technique.

Hidayet Turkoglu Basketball Career

Hidayet Turkoglu basketball
player Hidayet Turkoglu
Hidayet Turkoglu (Photo: BasketNews)
Born: March 19, 1979
First name: Hidayet
Nickname: Hedo
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Outlook:
A very skilled player who can do it all on the court. Has good technique, because he played point guard at the cadet level. Thanks to his quickness and ball-handling, he can create his own shot when he wants. You can expect lots of points every night from him. Thanks to his big body, he's very difficult to guard. Not so good defender, however, at least at top level, and sometimes loses concentration.
