Enes says he’s the best player in the NBA Draft

enes-scooter

Yes, even more Enes!

In an interview with Adam Zagoria, Enes Kanter broke out the swagger, saying that if he had played last season, Kentucky would have “dominated,” won the national title AND he would be the number one pick. Oh yeah, he also believes he’s the best player in the draft. Go read the article if you so desire, but here are the highlights:

– He expects to go in the top three
– If Irving goes number one and Enes is also selected by Cleveland with the fourth pick, he believes they will go to the playoffs
– He also likes Utah and Washington, especially since he could play with John Wall
– In the case of a lockout, he’ll go to Turkey and play with the National team BUT he won’t play professionally there (hear that Fenerbahce??)
– His little brother, Kerem (Class of 2013, Arlington (Fla.) Country Day) is also awesome and yes, Cal knows about him
– Cal will float between him and Brandon Knight tomorrow night

Go Enes.

    “If I would have played, we would have dominated and won the national championship.” Awesome, first of all, and secondly, correct. Next year, we will dominate anyway.

  4. He's right on at least 2 parts, and maybe the third

    Not sure about the #1 pick part, but yes, UK would have dominated and won the national title, probably only losing 2-3 games max.

    Hey 10- I think you are getting confused because mid-season Enes said that if the ncaa ruled he had to sit out a year but could play the next that he would do that. Poor kid just wanted to suit up for the blue and white

    kerem kanter, according to espn, is stockier than enes and plays mainly below the basket. they don’t expect him to be nearly the player that enes is, but they qualify that by saying that the second gasol brother didn’t appear to be as skilled as his brother at first either.

    i say whether or not he’s good, we should get him, just to give the ncaa the middle finger. you didn’t free enes, but YOU CAN’T TOUCH OUR KEREM!
