Arda All-Star! Turan makes hilarious cameo in Turkish basketball game

It is fair to say the Turkey international will not be changing sports anytime soon, although he lit up the game with a stunning three-pointer


While Arda Turan took some time to settle in to life at Barcelona, slowly but surely he is convincing the Camp Nou that he has the talent to succeed. 

Our advice for the Turkish forward, however, is that he should probably stick to football. 

While clearly blessed with decent basketball skills, Arda nevertheless struggled during a surprise cameo in the Turkish All-Star game following his goal for Barca on Saturday. 

He squandered a number of lay-up chances and missed three consecutive free throws, although he took it all in good sport. 

It was only at the end of his hilarious stint on court that Turan's real speciality became clear, as he sank a beautiful long-range bucket to rack up three points and leave the game on a high.
