Hedo Turkoglu = X-Factor?

This is my first time posting, so I wanted to start of by saying hey! Hope this isn't too bad :)

Basically, the point of this post was for me to see how other Magic fans feel about the statement I am about to make.

 

Hedo Turkoglu is the key to the Magic being successful this postseason. His production is more essential than any other Magic player, bar none.

 

There, I said it. Now, I love Dwight, Jameer, and the rest of the crew as much as the next guy.. But even I can't deny that this overpaid, slow, castoff from PHX and TOR is THE x-factor for the Orlando Magic. When he is attacking the basket and hitting his shots, we are almost completely unstoppable. We can win with Dwight just grabbing boards and blocking shots, regardless of how many points he scores. Jameer is also important, but disappears often and doesn't cost us wins. Same with J-Rich, JJ, Gilbert, and anyone else. Granted, we need production from multiple players. But, none of those players' production is as needed as Turk's. He can win the game as easily for us as he can lose it. When he is off, we lose. When he is on, the Magic are nearly unbeatable. No one else single-handedly wins or loses games on a game-to-game basis.

Of course, without Dwight we would be NOTHING. But I'm not arguing that Turk is out team's MVP.. Rather, he is just the player whose production most closely correlates to the Magic's W/L column.

 

Feel free to share your opinions as well! I would love to hear what other Magic fans feel about this! Also, hit up the poll! Thanks :)
