Especially any married guys. Turkoglu came alone, amid rumors that his wife very strongly preferred to be in Toronto, and I remember thinking at that very moment that the Blazers' recruiting pitch was doomed to failure. It was going to be tough to sell her on the charms of Portland if she wasn't there.
