Did Enes Kanter Go Too Far?

Published

on

Enes Kanter is known for pushing the buttons of former players. He famously trolled Lebron on his nickname, “King James” after James declared himself King of New York. This time though he may have gone too far.

After it was announced that the Golden State Warriors signed DeMarcus Cousins, Kanter had some choice tweets reacting to the news.

This one might get him a fine. It will certainly warrant a harsh email or phone call from NBA league offices, but that may be all.

The Thanos joins the Warriors joke is great but it’s been used 1000 times before. We get it, adding Boogie to that team makes them damn near impossible to beat.

This is by far my favorite, I wonder whose body that is? Definitely not Adam Silver’s. This one has to earn Kanter a fine. Essentially eluding to collusion between the commissioner of the NBA and their best team.

Regardless of the appropriateness of the tweets, I too have the same sentiments when it comes to the Warriors newest acquisition. At some point, the league has to put their food down in the spirit of competition.

The New York Knicks have their eyes on the summer of 2019 when they could have the opportunity to court their top free agent target, current Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, according to NBC Sports’ A. Sherrod Blakely.

“I’ve spoken with people within [the Knicks] organization. They have made it absolutely crystal clear to me that—if they had their pick of guys that are going to be in the free-agent market [next] summer—Kyrie would be their first, second, third and fourth choice,” Blakely said.

Irving, who is believed to be willing to give the Knicks “consideration” in free agency, is entering the final guaranteed year of his contract and will make $20.1 million with a player option of $21.3 million in 2018-2019.

Knicks’ Enes Kanter Wants to Stay in New York Long Term

Published

New York Knicks center Enes Kanter has enjoyed playing in the Big Apple so much that he wants to remain with the team for the long-term.

“I told [the Knicks] the week I got traded [last September], I said I wanted to stay here long term,” Kanter said, according to the New York Post’s Marc Berman. “You always want a longer contract to feel more secure and comfortable. After playing for the Knicks, you don’t want to play for other cities. I hope I stay here longer than just two years.”

If Kanter can continue to produce, the Knicks may provide him with a long-term commitment.

Kanter averaged 14.1 points and 11 rebounds a game during the 2017 -2018 season.

Knicks’ David Fizdale Excited for New Culture, Kristaps Porzingis

Published

The New York Knicks need a culture change, and a change of luck after their struggles over the past few years, and new head coach David Fizdale is excited to bring in a new culture of success, as well as coach and develop Kristaps Porzingis.

“It’s already happening,” Fizdale said, according to Bruce Beck of NBC New York. “Kristaps (Porzingis) will come back healthy. He was already having a big-time season last year when he got knocked down. We had an awesome draft with Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson, and Allonzo Trier — our two-way player.”

“Scott (Perry) and these guys are big-time sticking to an awesome plan of bringing in guys that maybe didn’t work out at a place where they were at before but are high draft picks. Under some good player development and some culture, maybe they can turn into something close to what they were expected to be… We’re doing it the right way.”
