For Aaron Turner, it all began at age 4. Turner’s grandfather, Arthur Brud, brought Turner along to the Cleveland Cavaliers team luncheons. These were regularly held events at which fans could pick the brains of their favorite Cavaliers. At one of these, Turner took full advantage of the opportunity, stood up in front of hundreds of people, grabbed the microphone and asked Cavaliers point guard Mark Price what key fundamentals he focused on when working to improve the mechanics of his outside shot.
On that day, Turner’s question turned the heads of nearly everybody in the room.
