Did Enes Kanter Go Too Far?

Published

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.

Knicks Could Trade Enes Kanter

Enes Kanter’s days as a member of the New York Knicks could be coming to a close as the veteran big man could be traded by the Knicks ahead of this year’s NBA trade deadline, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

If they choose not to trade him, the Knicks could renounce him during the offseason to maximize their cap space so that they could be major players in free agency next summer.

“If the Knicks are going free-agent shopping in July, they will likely do it without Kanter,” Marks speculated. “The impending free agent has a $27.9 million cap hold, and the only clear path for New York to create max room would be to renounce Kanter or let him walk in the summer.

The question leading into the deadline: Will the front office decide to maximize Kanter’s trade value now or keep the center as an insurance policy if they miss out on their free-agent targets?”

Kanter has posted 14.9 points and 11.5 rebounds per game for New York this season.

As the Washington Wizards field calls for John Wall and Bradley Beal, a number of NBA executives believe that the New York Knicks are preparing to make a strong run at Wall in the trade market.

According to Marc Berman of The New York Post, the is belief around the league front offices that the Knicks are stocking up to make a play for the All-Star veteran guard.

“Some in the league believe the Knicks are stocking up their young assets and will make a major play for Wall if he becomes available. The Wizards (9-14) were said to be ready to break it up after their disastrous start. It would have to be a three-team deal with the Knicks throwing in Ntilikina, Dotson, Courtney Lee (for cap purposes), a 2020 first-round and second-round pick.”

With a number of intriguing prospects and pressure on making a move to ensure that Kristaps Porzingis returns to the Knicks next summer, the Knicks could make a big splash.

New York Knicks guard Kevin Knox may have been one of the hottest names following his play during Summer League action, and while he played well against the Boston Celtics earlier this week, Knox says it’s been tough for him during his rookie season.

Specifically, Knox says the transition to the NBA game has been “tough” for him.

“The in and out (of the lineup) and not playing as well as I’d like to” Knox said, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. But like I said, I got to be strong mentally and make sure I got to keep playing hard, keep doing the dirty work, work on defense and get better at that. But it’s been tough.”

Knox has scored 8.5 points per game and 2.7 rebounds per game through 12 games for New York this season.
