First look: ‘Turner’s Block’ replaces ‘G2 Zone’

The latest fan section at Bankers Life Fieldhouse: Turner's Block.

The latest fan section at Bankers Life Fieldhouse: Turner’s Block.

He’s just 20 years old and in his second NBA season, but budding star Myles Turner already has his own fan section inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Introducing you to “Turner’s Block,” located in section 120 — formerly known as the “G2 Zone.”

Turner is fifth in the NBA in blocks per game (2.2). He has at least one swat in 20 of 22 games played this season.

Paul George and George Hill’s section is no more after five years in part because, well, Hill was traded. The new banner and graphics were installed while the team was away for 11 days on a five-game road trip.

This isn’t the first time this year that Turner has taken over territory once occupied by Hill. He also now appears in commercials for Indiana Member’s Credit Union and for every rejection of his during the season, IMCU donates a backpack full of school supplies to a child in need.

This is another step forward as Turner continues to add to his brand. Over the summer, he introduced a personal logo and held a successful basketball camp back home in Texas.

In the north east corner is “Rodney Stuckey’s Crew Charged by Mountain Dew.” This is its second season. It was previously Roy Hibbert’s “Area 55”

Also featured at the Fieldhouse are graphics in other areas, like “Nate’s Nest,” “Thad Young Stars,” “Big Al’s Club,” and “Glenn Robinson III.”
