Josiah Turner: 2014 Exit Interview
In two postseason games vs. Santa Cruz, Turner averaged 15.5 points, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steals on 48.8 percent field goals.
- On his thoughts on the season as a whole:
"We started off slow getting used to each other. I think as we started to feel each other out more, we gelled. The last few games we slipped up and let it slip away ... With the team we had, when we played together, we played great basketball. Anytime we came out and played together and played the right way, the sky was the limit for us."
- On his experience playing in the D-League for the first time and playing in Mike D'Antoni's system as a point guard:
"I loved it, I loved it. It was fantastic. I loved getting up and down, I liked using my speed and it was fun. My first year in the D-League was an experience I can grow from. I thought I played well. It was a fun year."
- On the type of feedback he received from the coaching staff at the end of the year:
"(The coaching staff) said I had the potential to play 12-15 years, whether it be in the NBA or overseas. They said I have the talent to be in the NBA. I just need to work on my jump shot. I loved playing for Bob MacKinnon and he taught me a lot."
- On playing with guys who had been in the NBA before and the type of advice he received from them:
"It's always good playing with veteran players. With me being a rookie in the D-League, they taught me a lot, especially to always be ready for practice and for games."
- On his main focus during the offseason and where he wants to improve his game:
"Mostly my jump shot. One thousand jump shots per day. The main focus is my shot."
