Turkoglu suspended 20 gms for banned substance

  My friend and I turned on an Orlando Magic game recently. It didn’t take long for the Hedo Turkoglu jokes to begin. The once wiry King is a bulked up Magic these days. He looks more like a wrestler than an NBA player. His shoulders may just be bigger than his contract. The...
