Evan Turner has not forgot where he came from.

The annual Evan Turner Showcase in Chicago brings in hundreds of high school and junior college basketball players for a viewing event with college coaches. It gives kids exposure that wouldn't otherwise get it and many of the players walk away from the event with scholarship offers.

In the video above, Turner, as well as his mother, the program director, and Chicago Bulls' guard Michael Carter-Williams all speak about the importance of the event how they hope it will spread across the country.
