Enes Kanter takes another shot at Knicks after Blazers advance in playoffs

Enes Kanter

Enes Kanter has made a significant impact with the Portland Trail Blazers since they signed him two months ago, and the veteran big man would like to thank his former team for providing him an opportunity to contend for a championship.

After the Blazers advanced to the second round of the playoffs with a 4-1 series win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kanter began his postgame press conference by thanking the New York Knicks for waiving him in February.

Kanter played a key role in Tuesday night’s 118-115 win, scoring 13 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. He averaged 13.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per game for the series, which ended up going five games.

The Knicks wanted to go in a younger direction once their season became a disaster yet again, and the 26-year-old Kanter apparently did not fit in with their plans. This is the second time he has taken a jab at his former team this postseason, so he is clearly enjoying the ride.
