Enes Kanter speaks his mind. You can’t knock him for it. He’s not afraid to share his opinion and doesn’t care if you like what he says or not. Kanter and I have that in common. Enes Kanter doesn’t like the Knicks. Here’s a quick recap. The Knicks basically ghosted Kanter to the bench while he was in New York so they could tank. The told him it was because they wanted to give young guys minutes. Then they traded for DeAndre Jordan and started giving him minutes as a recruiting tactic for Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Now Kanter is out for blood. He has every right to be angry. Nobody is going to cry about talking shit on Knicks ownership.

Appearing on The Full 48, Howard Beck’s podcast, former Knicks big man and current Celtics center, Enes Kanter blasted the Knicks ownership:

“I’m not blaming anybody. I had an amazing time with the Knicks,” Kanter said, according to Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News. “But other teammates I talked to or if they’re on different teams, they always said, ‘Amazing city, MSG is amazing. Everything is so good. But the ownership.’ They always keep saying, ‘But the ownership.’

“… I can tell. I don’t get into it too much. The players, when we get in the locker room, we talk about what’s going on. And the players always see how the management or how ownership treat other players, treat other players around.”

Kanter gets to talk shit because the Nets landed Durant and Irving. Not the Knicks. Kanter also landed the starting center job in Boston. Things worked out for everyone in free agency except for the Knicks. They’re going to be ass for the 700th year in a row. At least they still have Kristaps Porzingis! Shit… nevermind, they traded him too. The Dennis Smith era begins!

New York struck out in free agency and settled for  Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, Elfrid Payton, and Wayne Ellington. I can’t see how those guys gets this team into the postseason. It’s going to be another ugly year in Madison Square Garden. At least opposing players always like putting on a good showing for the fans and ripping their hearts out.
