Evan Turner won’t use Spencer Hawes’ Barack Obama toilet paper


Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes is not only on the trade block – he’s also a devote Republican.

The former University of Washington big man has never hidden his political views and apparently though it would be a funny to have Barack Obama toilet paper at his house.

Teammate and fellow trade candidate Evan Turner recently spent some time at Hawes’ crib and when he went to use the restroom, noticed the odd TP. But Turner just couldn’t do the duty, though he did decide to post a picture of the toilet paper.

I’m guessing Turner wasn’t thinking when he posted the photo because Hawes is likely to draw some heavy criticism for the toilet paper.

On the flip side, Hawes has quite the dry sense of humor and is known to have plenty of oddities like the printed toilet paper, so it was likely meant in good fun. That said, I have a feeling Spencer is going to wish that picture never made its way onto the internet.
