We certainly feel for Evan Turner, who was one of the many folks on the East Coast whose weekend travel plans were unfortunately scuttled by severe storms. If the Philadelphia 76ers swingman hadn't had his All-Star Weekend getaway scratched, though, he might never have had occasion to take this photo and share it on Instagram:

The caption on Turner's photo: "Using the toilet @spenceneedle crib and I noticed his toilet paper. I refuse to use it though lol #mudbutt #lookingforadifferentroll"

"@spenceneedle" is the Instagram handle of Sixers center Spencer Hawes, who hails from Seattle and rather enjoys repping that city's Space Needle (even follicularly). He also happens to be one of the NBA's more outspoken Republicans, a conservative-minded sort who has called the Al Gore global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" "one big lie," once created a Facebook page for fans of conservative pundit Ann Coulter," took to Twitter to lambaste the Supreme Court for upholding President Barack Obama's landmark health care legislation, and was none too pleased to learn back in November that Obama, who famously backs the Chicago Bulls, once counted himself a fan of the 76ers.

Nothing like a good ol' gag gift to drive home your political views. I wonder if Hawes actually bought it at Spencer's Gifts, or if that would just be too perfect a coincidence.

Whatever you might think about Hawes' choice of a goof, it is nice that Turner whom the president shouted out during a March 2010 speech in Ohio, where Turner played college ball at Ohio State and won National Player of the Year honors before the Sixers made him the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft responded with an "lol" and kept it moving. See? We don't all have to have the same political feelings and opinions to get along as friends, teammates and on-court collaborators. Basketball can serve as a bipartisan promoter of brotherhood, no matter what brand of novelty one-ply might try to separate us.
