— The Turkish National basketball team’s technical coordinator believes Enes Kanter forgot how to play basketball. He said, “(Enes) is a great talent and we miss him a lot. He decided not to join us but honestly, he needs us more than we need him. He has not played or trained with us in the past three years.” He continued, “America is the perfect place to lose your head. Firstly, because the coaches do not understand. In the NBA, there are just three or four coaches who have been there for 100 years, making billions and winning trophies. Others are weak.” And then, “Kanter has forgotten how to play basketball. He will never be a center but he always starts with his back to the basket.”
Wow. Tell us how you really feel.
