(Boston Celtics Evan) Turner can relate his own experience to what other players might see this summer when looking at the Celtics as a potential free agency destination. Those Boston winters, and especially the last one, mark everything most NBA free agents don’t want in a new city.

But the organization, and especially the environment under Stevens, make up for the blustery shortcomings, according to Turner.

“Regardless, Boston is always a destination team,” he said. “Somebody will always come, whether we make the playoffs or not. It’s the energy and emotion. I’ve talked to some friends who have come here and played: They see that the crowd is crazy, the fan base is crazy, even when we weren’t in the playoff race at the time. People still show up. It’s about basketball, not other gimmicks.

“There’s certain organizations,” said Turner. “The people who work here are classy people. The city is like that. There aren’t many people walking around parading other sports teams. It’s all Boston, compared to some of the places I’ve played in. It’s been fun.”
