Season Grade: B-

With Evan Turner being drafted 2nd overall in the 2010 draft, he has failed to meet the high expectations set for him by Sixers fans once again. While this was the best season of his career thus far,  it just wasn’t good enough. Turner finished with 13.3 PPG, 4.3 APG, and 6.3 RPG. There were parts to his game that were impressive; he stepped up in clutch situations at times and grabbed key rebounds. But what really disappointed me the most was his inconsistency. The Sixers need Turner to be a reliable, consistent, and talented player, and unfortunately so far he has not shown us that he can be that guy. I believe that Turner has the potential and can improve, it just might take him a little bit longer than others.
