If I'm currently DL gold, would a TK status match make the most sense to do to gain further elite stats?

Why not?

Why not?
my question was if its the best option, or if there are any better options with any other programs

Matching to TK doesn't preclude you from matching to other programs.

i understand that. My question is I don't really have a purpose of matching to just any airline. I am just interested in matching to get benefits by star alliance. So I wanted to know if tk is the best due to me getting it for 2 years, and it being a foreign airline so I assume it can be used for lounge access. Or is there a different program that's better for me

Better than 2 years, lounge access, and matches DL?

No.

My advice even rhymes, for your convenience: "For *A, go for TK". ;D

truth is I started replying with a thanks and started to write that start alliance rhymes with American Airlines and united airlines just as much as it does with Turkish airlines, then I realized that he meant the "a" with the "k". S I erased everything and just left the thanks.
But as long as we're still buds  ;)
